Album Review: The Necromancers – Where The Void Rose

Almost feels as if we’ve stumbled into some shady downtown bar mid-song, ‘Sunken Huntress’ wasting no time in reminding old friends and informing newcomers what THE NECROMANCERS is on about.

Certainly the most overtly Metal of the bunch, ‘The Needle’ marries early JUDAS PRIEST to a […]
