After successfully concluding their burial procession through Europe,NECROWRETCH have announced a string of Asian tour dates in November. The tour starts on November 2nd at Morbid Metal Festival in Singapore and ends in the Philippines, on November 11. See the full list of confirmed shows below.
Front-man Vlad comments on the tour: “Thanks to Ventbox Productions, in addition to our return to Singapore and Malaysia, NECROWRETCH will perform for the first time in many other countries and make the connection with a lot of die-hard fans waiting for our coming since a long time. Exclusive merch and shirt designs will be announced soon.”
Ventbox Productions states: “It is with great honor that we will be hostingNECROWRETCH for a return tour to Asia since the forging of an unholy alliance with Vent Box Productions in 2015. Promoting foreign bands in Asia has always been a challenge yet we are convinced of the great potential these Satanic French maniacs possess!”
Third strike is deadly. NECROWRETCH hammer out album number three in an all-out attack on everything that is glossy and polished in modern metal. ‘Satanic Slavery’ is dirty, gritty, mean, and beautifully untamed. This record spells DEATH METAL in capital letters without embracing mindless nostalgia.
NECROWRETCH are letting their roots clearly shine through. Early death metal with clearly audible thrash elements play a large role on ‘Satanic Slavery’. Echoes of POSSESSED or DARK ANGEL are equally present as fiercely rasping black metal vocals, and the melodic attitude of Swedish influences with a dash of DISSECTION.
When harsh vocalist and guitarist Vlad created NECROWRETCH almost ten years ago, he drew inspiration from various extreme sources such as IMPALED NAZARENE, NIHILIST, and MARDUK as well as Floridian and South American death metal acts.
After several line up changes, Vlad was joined by drummer Ilmar in 2013 andNECROWRETCH immediately hit the scene hard when their debut full-length ‘Putrid Death Sorcery’ arrived with a massive impact the same year. Their strong connection to the underground was emphasised with a following compilation of earlier material under the name ‘Bestial Rites 2009 – 2012’ (2013).
With sophomore album ‘With Serpents Scourge’ (2015), NECROWRETCHadded some musical twists and turns that revealed influences by Swedish black death pioneers such as DARK FUNERAL, DISSECTION and NECROPHOBIC. Followed by several tours and festivals across Europe and Asia,NECROWRETCH have proven that French extreme metal is still alive and kicking!
Now the French have perfected their gruesome vision of death metal without losing the original recipe which made their success. Brace for impact,NECROWRETCH offer true ‘Satanic Slavery’.
