Necronomicon  


Necronomicon was one of a handful of German speed/thrash bands that starting making noise in the mid/late eighties. Surprisingly, the band remains largely intact to this day, though they have recorded infrequently after releasing a trio of albums in the 80's, with one album in the 90's and their latest dating back to 2004. Their style (at least, on their third album, 1988's Escalation) focuses more on speed metal than true thrash, with vocals that harken a bit to the crossover movement of that time.
