The long awaited announcement came this past Wednesday April 29, 2015 that South County RI metallers I GUARD THE THRONE has found thier 2nd guitarist, Chris Gifford(Sons of Odin). The band have been looking for a replacement for some time now. Auditions were held but, due to the unique style of fast paced technical driven grungy/grind death ‘core, they were unable to find a good fit. Until now, that is.

Athol Massachusetts’ Blackened Death Metal outfit NECRONOMICHRIST celebrate Easter and the start of spring with a gift to it’s fans. Offering it’s Apparitions of the Obscene for free as a digital download. The album is also available in CD and vinyl format and available at the bands Bandcamp. I have embedded a player below for you to listen.

Quote from Granite Coast Entertainment

“Apparitions of the Obscene” certainly has the balls to be as rowdy as any album out there, but there’s such controlled chaos that you’re able to really take in, really feel the sound and what the band is trying to convey through their music. I truly feel that this album is one of the stand-outs of 2014 and you should do yourself a favor and pick it up.

The band has been working in new material and promises deeper, darker sounds are in the works.

From the bands Facebook Page…

Since it’s Easter, we figured why not update you on the only Christ that really matters today…NECRONOMICHRIST. We have fostered a long tradition of usurping holy days to spread our music, and this one, having already been usurped by an egg stealing rabbit, is no exception. To celebrate this new holiday of ours, we’re giving you our new album, Apparitions of the Obscene, in digital format FOR FREE! That’s right, you can download our full length album for FREE in high quality MP3, WAV, or FLAC, or be a good Necronomichristian and donate anyway. Either way we all win, because you get to hear our album.

Rest assured, we did not spend the winter in dormancy. We’ve already begun writing the next LP and we’re evolving into a bigger, deeper, and darker band than ever imagined. We will be fixing up the Necrovan and booking some gigs soon, so be on the look out for those, as well as some new video activity on our Youtube channel. In the meantime, if you haven’t heard the new record, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
