They are going to disband after a last release.
According to THE MAGUS (Magus Wampir) of the almighty Necromantia, after the sudden death of Baron Blood, Necromantia will be no more.
The intention is to release one final tribute in a form of an EP in 2020 (date unknown) as a way of homage to the late Baron Blood who contributed to all Necromantia releases.
It is fair enough since some people in some line-ups cannot and should not be substituted, and Baron Blood was one of these persons.
Baron Blood passed away last week for a heart attack (read the news here) prompting The Magus to take this sad but sage decision.
Read the announcement on the band’s Facebook page:
“There will be a final recording of NECROMANTIA in 2020. It will be an EP entitled “Baron Blood”. I do not know how many songs, 2 or 3. It will be a final tribute to Baron Blood for his spirit and restless soul. Afterwards NECROMANTIA will be officially disbaned, therefore there will be no more releases or re-releases beyond Decamber 31, 2020. After this date NECROMANTIA will be no more”
Apart of Necromantia, The Magus also is part of Thou Art Lord with Necromayhem (aka Sakis Tolis) from the famous Rotting Christ. So we hope to hear something from them in the near future as the band is active.
