What happens when you put a bunch of bloodthirsty music-loving goblins together? Well, a lot of disembowelment, but also a lot of catchy tunes. Formed six millenia ago, and practicing only every other leap year on a full moon, the band has perfected their brand of crushing goblin music.
If you didn't believe that first part, NEKROGOBLIKON is a goblin metal band hailing from the grim metal locale of California, USA. We started as a summer side project of Nicky and Tim, but outgrew our humble beginnings quickly. Our debut album, recorded over Summer and early Fall of 2006 is Goblin Island, a musical hell-storm of goblin proportions. We released it ourselves, January 1st, 2007.
We did the usual band-member musical chairs for a while, but our current lineup is both awesome AND rad. We are currently playing as many local California shows as we possibly can and honing our craft. We are also working on our second full-length album, titled STENCH and produced by Nekrogoblikon with Zack Ohren at Castle Ultimate Studios. A release date is hard to predict due to various goblin issues, but we're hoping for sometime in 2011.
Nekrogoblikon has shared the stage with August Burns Red, Arsis, Cattle Decapitation, Powerglove, Conducting From the Grave, Valient Thorr, Red Fang, Holy Grail, Cauldron, Gypsyhawk, The Minibosses, MC Frontalot, Light This City, The Swellers, Spires, Burning The Masses, Volumes, Bermuda, A Band of Orcs, Falling to Pieces, Warhead, Godstomper, Casket Blaster, Love Thyne, Immaculate Fatality, Three Mile Island, Verfallen, Desecrate, Mouth Of The Serpent, Screwdrive Suicide, Inquest, and others. We are always on the lookout for labels, management, etc.. to support our cause. If you think you can help us out with that, send us a message.
