Today, Swedish blackened death metal legends NECROPHOBIC unleash new single/EP “Mirror Black,” kicking off the campaign for the release of their undoubtedly most diverse and elaborated album to date Dawn of the Damned set to be released on October 9th via Century Media Records worldwide.
“Mirror Black” comes together with an official music video created by Magnus Göthlund (director) and Henrik Christoffersson (director of photography). See it HERE.
Says NECROPHOBIC, “The video for ‘Mirror Black‘ was shot on two different locations in Stockholm. We wanted to manifest the bright and the dark side of the portal to the underworld. The song is about a journey to begin through darkness and fire. This is where the damned takes the final step into the pitch black depths of death. On to the other side where a new dawn awaits.“
Dawn of the Damned, which was recorded and mixed by Fredrik Folkare (Unleashed, Firespawn, etc.) and comes once again with artwork by Kristian “Necrolord” Wåhlin, will be available as Ltd. 2-CD Mediabook & Patch, Gatefold colored & black LP with LP-Booklet & Poster, Standard CD Jewelcase and Digital album.

With thirty years of active, nefarious service under their bulletbelts, NECROPHOBIC are undisputed legends of the death and black metal underground. Formed in 1989 by drummer Joakim Sterner, the Stockholm blackhearts propagated a singular and fearless vision from the very start, confirming their prowess with now legendary debut album The Nocturnal Silence in 1993.
Despite numerous line-up changes and moments of turmoil, NECROPHOBIC’s dark light has never dimmed. As a result, when the band’s most efficacious line-up reconvened for 2018’s Mark Of The Necrogram, it was obvious to fans and critics alike that the Swedish quintet were back to the blistering form that first cemented their reputation. With guitarists Sebastian Ramstedt and Johan Bergeback back in the fold after a five-year hiatus, it was a self-evident career peak for all concerned. Not just the best sounding record of the band’s career, but one of the most monstrously dramatic and destructive records of the decade, it made the prospect of the next NECROPHOBIC album even more mouth-watering. Fast forward to 2020 and chief songwriter Ramstedt has summoned another breath-taking eruption of otherworldly malice, this time bearing the title Dawn of the Damned.
