Side project, alter ego, or simply a separate band with identical membership -- whatever the case, Haxxan released their sole album in 2016, with the band members being the entire then-current lineup of seminal gore/death metallers Necrophagia. But the similarity ends with membership, as Loch Ness Rising is a mid-paced, second-wave black metal album, and a quite good one at that, concentrating not on blastbeats but a slightly laid-back, almost black-n-roll feel. Necrophagia officially disbanded in 2018 when founder/vocalist Killjoy passed away in 2016, but it is unknown whether this band is still active.
