It's been a few years since this material was recorded but here it finally is, for all to dowload and listen to, our first ever proper Demo: Thrashist Pigs! 

 DOWNLOAD IT HERE NOW!

 The story

After Ben left the band the three of us (Rik joined us after all recording and most of the artwork was done) set out to record a Demo. Since we are basically cheap lazy bastards we had no savings to go to a studio and some of the songs still needed some mucking around with before being finalized on a recorder. We had decided to purchase a harddisk recorder a year or so earlier so this recorder became the backbone of our own studio efforts, combined with a laptop with Kristal on it (an awesome freeware tool). Recording took long, especially getting the right setup for the drums (those who have seen Pelle's kit know why). But, eventually, it was done. The next year or so was spent arguing and fighting over the artwork, doing a bunch of photoshoots and getting some friends involved to use their artistic and photoshop skills. When most of that was done too, the hard bit started: licensing crap. Necrotaph has no agent or label, we're a pretty low profile group of dudes who like the rocking out parts of being in a band but who have a healthy dislike for the business side of it all. This is where all the delays came from (did I mention we're lazy already?). We didn't want any BUMA/STEMRA protection for all our stuff, we just want to get our music down and get on with some new tracks! But you have to do some licensing with STEMRA before you can put anything to CD, don't ask us why, we didn't want it but CD printers wouldn't print our CD without it.

The last word about this was about a half a year ago, when we asked STEMRA for the permission to publish our own work, and we've had enough! The recording industry has always been a bastard but luckily it is changing for the better, especially for small outfits who don't see making profit as their first rule. See, over the last couple of years more and more musicians have started giving away their music. Which is exactly what we're going to do. We didn't want to make any money on the CD's in the first place but making CD's still costs money so we'd have to charge cost price as a bare minimum. By publishing the Demo on our website in it's entirety we keep costs on our side to a minimum, and you guys don't have to shell out money for some 20'th century plastic disc which you then go on converting into Mp3's anyway. We still plan to do something with the money we put aside for making the CD's though, and that's MERCHANDISING. A couple of years back our T-shirts already sold better than the Promo CD's we had (the Promo songs have always been on our website) so we believe investing in some cool shirts with Fake's awesome artwork is a way better way to spend some money. Knowing us it'll take a year to finalise these designs but they will ROCK!

 Preparations for our next demo are currently in the works. This time it will (most probably) not take 8 years to get a demo out....

 

Tribal War  

Evil spirits fill the sky
Innocent souls are gonna die
Bloody massacre has just begun
Slaughtering from dusk till dawn

burning houses all around
on the run toward the bound
rotting corpses in the verge
victim's souls in air they'll merge

Knives and machetes are shredding away
killing and raping by night and by day
wounded and tired, crying in pain
Anxious to live, but urge to maintain

burning houses all around
on the run toward the bound
rotting corpses in the verge
victim's souls in air they'll merge

Morninglight shines bloody red
all the flowers are cold and dead
only me, with you in my mind
celebrate the death of mankind

Vultures pierce the evil sun
era of chaos only just begun
A screaming moon lights empty despair
through burnout dessert rides radiation nightmare

burning houses all around
on the run toward the bound
rotting corpses in the verge
victim's souls in air they'll merge

Knives and machetes are shredding away
killing and raping by night and by day
wounded and tired, crying in pain
Anxious to live, but urge to maintain

Morninglight shines bloody red
all the flowers are cold and dead
only me, with you in my mind
celebrate the death of mankind

Tribal war

 

Bloodbath

Fucking feasting fighting, bloodbath
raping plunder frenzy, Bloodbath
Fucking feasting fighting, bloodbath
raping plunder frenzy, Bloodbath

All my life, humiliation. Pushed too far, retalliation
beating stabbing slicing fighting for hell
finally releasing madness, world goes red, malicious sadness
beating slicing bleeding dicing lightning

and so, fighting for my fun, hiding in the troops
fear, carefull what to say, bloody in the mud
should've known I'm fucked

All my life, humiliation. Pushed too far, retalliation
beating stabbing slicing fighting for hell
finally releasing madness, world goes red, malicious sadness
beating slicing bleeding dicing lightning

Fucking feasting fighting, bloodbath
raping plunder frenzy, Bloodbath
Fucking feasting fighting, bloodbath
raping plunder frenzy, Bloodbath

here we come, marching to the front
digging in to fight off Fritz the Hun
Stealthy my escapades in the dark
butchering the peasants and their kin
I am the one, slaughter given skin

I see you you stand before me, remotely
oh no, I see, you are me

Now I see my brethren are killing eachother, brother kill brother,
it's war in the trenches now, the mud is rotting my legs away from me
Now I see my brethren are killing eachother, brother kill brother,
it's war in the trenches now, the mustardgas is filling my lungs with blood

Farewell

 

Drown

Devils and demons fight in your head
sickly and sweating you lie in your bed
coughing up blood sputum turns red
Drown in your own blood

you are diseased
get on your knees
beg and say please
Drown in your own blood

too shamed to pray
death on display
frustrated outrage
no 'die with your boots on' for you

spitting blood
bleeding slime
sweating, all gonna see you die

fight for your soul, hell is your goal
you fucked up your life now BURN

Drown in your own Blood

 

Witchcraft

Can I choose, can I battle for you
Can I fight this restraint
Can I struggle, can I win
Can I abandon this soul I taint, this soul you taint

Mindfuck, mindwarp, dieing is less painful
stealer, unknown, the wound you leave so vengeful

My life is mine to lead
my blood is mine to bleed
don't interfere with me
don't leave me alone

my life is mine to drown
I'll take you down with me
wade into the sea and fade away

My life is mine to lead
my blood is mine to bleed
my life is mine to drown
I'll take you down with me

Mindfuck, mindwarp, dieing is less painful
stealer, unknown, the wound you leave so vengeful
rust, lost, soul

my life is mine to drown
I'll take you down with me
wade into the sea don't you fade away

My life is mine to take
my heart is your to break
now the hunt is on
will you hide or fight

Mindfuck, mindwarp, dieing is less painful
stealer, unknown, the wound you leave so vengeful
rust, lost, soul

Witch Craft

 

The Grave of the Rising Dead 

There is a grave in New Orleans, they call the Rising Dead
It's been the resurrection of many a poor boy,
and Satan knows I'm one.
