Norwegian black metal heads ENDEZZMA have set November 28th as the release date for their debut full-length album “Erotik Nekrosis”, due out via Poland’s Agonia Records. The seven track album, which will be the band’s first effort 2008’s MCD “Alone”, was recorded by such individuals as Morten Shax on vocals, the late Trondr Nefas (Urgehal, Beastcraft, Angst Skvadron, Vulture Lord) and Mattis Malphas (Beastcraft) on guitars, Sregroth (Urgehal, Åsmegin) on bass and Carl Balam (Nattefrost, Astaroth, ex-Infernal) on drums.
Commenting on “Erotik Nekrosis” and the delays that dogged the album, including the tragic and untimely death of Trondr Nefas, founder and frontman Shax has this to say: “After delays that almost seem to have been a series of malicious and morbid curses conspiring against us, it is with understandable relief that we can finally get ‘Erotik Nekrosis’ out there. The reasons for the delay are legion, and it is probably best just to say that the path of darkness is a troubled and mysterious journey through life and there’s an intensity to the sickness that accompanies it which can only be dealt with over short periods of time. Sadly, too, it is impossible to predict the season that Death will gather its harvest, and we lost Trondr Nefas – our close friend, our brother and our guitarist, under tragic circumstances. It’s been 5 years since we released ‘Alone’ so it’s definitely time for ENDEZZMA to turn the page on what went before and move forward. I know many people have been waiting and waiting for this album, and some probably gave up along the way, but I hope we will not let down all of the patient morbid souls. This album is for all of the individuals that stayed true to the band, all of you who never stopped waiting. ‘Erotik Nekrosis’ is dedicated to Death and to you Trondr!”
