Cult death metal pioneers NECROPHAGIA have kicked off their European tour. The tour runs throughout June, and sees NECROPHAGIA sharing stage with I AM MORBID, the new band featuring David Vincent of MORBID ANGEL.
Immediately following the dates with I AM MORIBD, NECROPHAGIA will pair up the legendary VOIVOD for a UK tour. A full list of confirmed UK tour dates can be found below.
NECROPHAGIA is touring in support of their new album, ‘WhiteWorm Cathedral’. The album, which has been called “Simple, sick and heavy” (Metal Injection), and “career-defining, solid, consistent work which brings together thirteen tracks, drawn from one source of inspiration yet each performed to stand out among one another.” (Sputnik Music), is streaming here.
Formed in 1983, NECROPHAGIA were one of the very first death metal bands in the world. Often considered pioneers in the “Horror Metal” genre, the band gained notoriety by cutting their teeth in the early days of the underground tape trading scene, and their ambitious live stage shows chock full of blood, guts and gore. The band went on to receive world-wide acclaim for their 1998 release of ‘Holocausto de la Morte’, the band’s genre-defining album featuring PANTERA frontman PHIL ANSELMO. Following the landmark album, NECROPHAGIA went on to release several well-received full lengths and EPs, including the highly-sought-after ‘Cannibal Holocaust’ EP (2001). Following the release of their most recent album ‘WhiteWorm Cathedral’ (2014), NECROPHAGIA has toured across the United States with VENOM INC., 1349, and many more.
