Indie Recordings has announced the signing of Norwegian thrashers NEKROMANTHEON. The trio’s second album will be released on January 13, 2012.

NEKROMANTHEON has one thing in mind: to play fast, evil and dirty thrash metal in the way of the old gods. Influenced by SLAYER, SADUS, KREATOR, DARK ANGEL and SEPULTURA, they have been unleashing their attack on modern metal since their inception in 2005.

With two members of OBLITERATION in its ranks, NEKROMANTHEON is no stranger to the Norwegian metal scene.

Originally hailing from Kolbotn, the hometown of the mighty DARKTHRONE, NEKROMANTHEON has previously performed at the Maryland Deathfest and Live Evil festival in London.

With one album and a EP under its belt, NEKROMANTHEON “has regressed far back into the glorious days of real metal, breaking the chains to all that is plastic,” according to a press release. “Their second and forthcoming full-length is even faster, filthier, and more evil than ever! NEKROMANTHEON have truly summoned the ancient Greek gods of havoc, and will let nothing stand in the way of this unholy blood offering. Worship the beast!”
