DEATH METAL SUPERGROUP'S DEBUT ALBUM, FEATURING MEMBERS OF ENTOMBED, HELLACOPTERS, WATAIN, DISMEMBER, CARNAGE, AUTOPSY, AT THE GATES, GRAND MAGUS AND NIFELHEIM
After more than 20 years in the death metal scene, former Dismember/Carnage drummer Fred Estby wanted to express his passion for different kinds of extreme music he's bore since his youth. In 2008, Estby started to write and record material with the intention of having one unique vocalist for each song. Dubbed NECRONAUT, the project would become a reality one year later when Estby began contacting the many talented metal musicians he had in mind to complete the album of his diabolic dreams. Estby is currently finalizing the as-yet-untitled album slated for release later this year via Regain Records. In short, NECRONAUT is a raw slab of old school metal and while the term old-school alone goes a long way in accurately describing the sound that one should expect from Estby and co, NECRONAUT are so much more. The band's approach is crude and dead simple, a la early Bathory and Venom mutated with Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden, but with an unorthodox bass-heavy production that allows the album to stand out amongst its peers. The goal was primitive brute force, but because of the manner in which Estby chose to achieve it, he also managed to create an aura of pure malevolence that, prior to this albums creation, was likely difficult to imagine.
