After the release of the "We're Rotting" EP in early 2007, the band had already built a name for themselves in the underground scene. As the band got more and more focused on capturing the spirit of the 80's, guitarist Arild "Arse" Myren Torp, and drummer Christian "Kick" Holm started building their own recording studio. Shortly their very own “KickArse Studio” was ready in Kolbotn, Norway, the hometown of the mighty Darkthrone.
With their own creative pit available their first full-length album, entitled "Divinity of Death" was released shortly. This intense evocation of evil turned some heads indeed, and earned the band a spot at Maryland DeathFest 2010 and the highly prestigious, yet extremely underground, Live Evil Festival in London the same year.
In 2012, Nekromantheon released their second record, “Rise, Vulcan Spectre” elevating the level of ferocious, darkened Thrash metal to unknown heights. The release was an unholy offering to summon the old ways of metal, being held up to underground classics from the 80’s. It was an intense, analog sounding record that showed no mercy. Rise, Vulcan Spectre was met with raving reviews and went on to receive a Grammy for Best Metal album 2012.
