Necronomicon - Announce European Tour, Writing New Music

German thrash legends Necronomicon have announced the dates for their European tour in support of last year's The Final Chapter, which will take place through September and October and include support from 3000AD, and on select dates, Stonecast and Strident. The band also announced that they are currently in the process of writing another album, coming later this year or next year.

On their new album, vocalist and guitarist Volker "Freddy" Fredrich said: "Twelve songs are written and today 12.05.2022 the 13th song will be finished. Thirteen songs full of power and hardness. A wide spectrum from typical thrash metal versions over punk-heavy versions to driving midtempi songs. Next week the lyrics for the vocal parts will be written and after that Marco and Freddy will fly to Canada to record the drum parts with Rik."

Freddy also commented on the album's lyrical topics: "As the world is becoming to resemble the H.P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon (Book of Dead) we have decided to deal with the current situation in Ukraine and in general with the topic of war and violence against children and women. Musically, I would like to tie in with The Final Chapter and deliver a wide range of song material which also means a new beginning, a new chapter of the band with Rik and Glen at the same time. Again Achim Köhler will do the mixing and mastering."
