Formed in 1983, NECROPHAGIA were one of the very first death metal bands in the United States. Often considered pioneers in the "Horror Metal" genre, the band gained notoriety after cutting their teeth in the underground by staging ambitious live shows, chalk full of blood, guts and gore. The band went on to receive world-wide acclaim for their 1998 release of 'Holocausto de la Morte', the band's genre-defining album featuring PANTERA frontman Phil Anselmo. Following this landmark album, NECROPHAGIA went on to release several well-received full lengths and EPs, most of them available on Season of Mist’s e-shop.



NECROPHAGIA invite you to join their gore splattered journey on "Deathtrip 69". Six long years the rabid fans of these pioneers of horror influenced Metal had to wait for a successor of the US-band's fourth full length "Harvest Ritual Vol 1: Penance" (2005). Now NECROPHAGIA return with a more old school approach to their very own gut wrenching, brain drilling style of Death Metal.

The birth of NECROPHAGIA was solely inspired by Killjoys obsession with horror, upon first hearing VENOM and HELLHAMMER. NECROPHAGIA was formed in late 1983 by Killjoy. The band released various demos and in 1987 they released their full length debut "Season of the Dead", through New Renaissance. NECROPHAGIA broke up shortly afterwards claiming extreme musical differences.

In 1994 Philip Anselmo (PANTERA) and Killjoy began writing new material for the rebirth of NECROPHAGIA. A line up was assembled and featured Wayne Fabra on drums, Dustin Havnen on bass, Philip (Anton Crowley) Anselmo on guitar, and Killjoy. The band released "Holocausto de la Morte" and a MCD entitled "Black Blood Vomitorium" with this line-up. NECROPHAGIA then started its cooperation with Season of Mist and released another MCD "Cannibal Holocaust", which ended another era for the undisputed masters of horror. This MCD featured bassist Jared Faulk and keyboardist Opal Enthroned.

Shortly hereafter, Season of Mist released the DVD entitled "Through Eyes of the Dead". Featuring material from the movie "Cannibal Holocaust", this DVD was banned in several countries.

In 2002, NECROPHAGIA revamped its line-up once again and unleashed "The Divine Art of Torture", featuring the harrowing line-up of Frediablo and Fug on guitar, Iscariah (IMMORTAL) on bass, Titta Tani on drums, and Mirai Kawashima (SIGH) on keyboards. The band wreaked havoc throughout Europe on their first European tour dubbed NecroTorture.

NECROPHAGIA went into the studio shortly afterwards and began recording their next release, an MCD titled "Goblins be Thine" (Red Stream). During this tine NECROPHAGIA released their new DVD "Nightmare Scenarios" which featured videos by legendary horror icons including Paul Naschy and Coffin Joe.

After a short break the band entered the studio once again to record their newest release, "Harvest Ritual Volume I". For this album NECROPHAGIA again joins forces with Season of Mist. "Harvest Ritual Volume I" features guest appearances by Bill Mosely and Joey Jordison, and features the bands heaviest, darkest, and most horror filled effort to date. Combining eerie rhythms, haunting passages, and Killjoys ever possessed vocals to ensure NECROPHAGIA are truly the pioneers of audio horror and continue to reign supreme in the extreme metal genre.

NECROPHAGIA travelled extensively around the world on their Harvesting the Dead 2005-2006 tour, before entering the studio to record "Harvest Ritual Volume II" (The Awakening of Sin).

In their latest eerie incarnation NECROPHAGIA serve another brutal classic with "Deathtrip 69" featuring all their beloved evil elements like gruesome movie samples, vintage horror feeling and ripping riffing. Joining the bloody fun for guest appearances are Casey Chaos (AMEN) and Maniac (SKITLIV, ex-MAYHEM), while the cover design was conceived by renowned tattoo artist Jake Arnette. Beware: NECROPHAGIA will get you!
