GOREAPHOBIA released their long-anticipated Apocalyptic Necromancy full-length earlier this year via Dark Descent Records. Recorded, mixed and mastered by drummer Jim Roe, the record features new guitarist VJS (Kult ov Azazel, Crimson Moon, Demoncy, etc.) and has been earning praise from fans and critics internationally.
“GOREAPHOBIA represents everything death metal should be. Their entire discography is possessed with old-school dirt that chomps like a hungry shark, and thankfully none of the group’s horrific habits were dropped during this excellent slab of maggot-infested death metal.” — Thrashpit
Chunks of this record sound as if Celtic Frost, before To Mega Therion and after Emperor’s Return, detoured into death metal. So, the spectrum ranges from raw d-beats to grand compositions.” — 8/10 Decibel
“Cohesive, unaffected and unrelentingly authentic.” — Rue Morgue
“…a natural progression for GOREAPHOBIA, that will appeal to anyone looking for something a little different to go along with their daily dose of death metal.” — About.com
“You can definitely hear the Celtic Frost, Venom and Bathory influence at work here. Powerful mid to fast paced crushing riffs, the overall sound takes me back to the day’s when death metal was just starting out… GOREAPHOBIA has done it again, Apocalyptic Necromancy is some killer death metal.” — The Adversary
“For anybody who likes some good, dirty, grimy old school death metal, look no further than the newest release from Philly’s GOREAPHOBIA.” – Blistering
