The Magus (Vocals, Bass ex-Diabolos Rising, ex-Rotting Christ, Thou Art Lord), Makis (Bass ex-Terra Tenebrae)

The band was created in late 1989 by two like minded individuals: The Magus (bass/vocals) and Baron Blood (8-string bass).

Their aim was to create original, powerful and innovative Diabolical music, replacing the usual 6-string guitars with 8-string bass! Their first recordings earned them a cult status in the scene since they were very original, ritualistic and utterly sinister! NECROMANTIA never hesitated to use "non -metal" instruments like: saxophone, percussions e.t.c. in addition to their standard metal orchestrations.
