Necronomicon

Necronomicon was one of a handful of German speed/thrash bands that starting making noise in the mid/late eighties. They recorded a trio of albums for the small Scratchcore label in the 80's, disappeared until 1995's Scream, and since then have recorded sporadically. 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.

Recent album: The Final Chapter, released on March 26, 2021.
