Canadian blackened death metal masters Necronomicon have today premiered the horror-fueled music video for their song, "The Thousand Masks." The track is taken from the band's latest record, UNUS, which was released this October via Season of Mist.
The NSFW video, which serves as a cautionary tale of why you shouldn't mess with the grimoire, can be seen below. Speaking of the video, frontman Rob "The Witch" comments: "Over 30 years ago we started a project called Necronomicon writing about H.P. Lovecraft mythos and with time passing, we decided to pay homage to the origin of our name and fully embrace it. The stars are aligned the time is right to reveal the many forms under ‘The Thousand masks.’"
Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s legendary grimoire, Necronomicon formed in 1988 by founding guitarist and singer Rob "The Witch" in the deep, northern part of Canadian province Quebec, Fjord of Saguenay. Since then, the band have carefully released each full-length without haste, allowing them to perfect every nuance before unleashing their sonic assaults upon the masses.
In 2019, Necronomicon was presented with a certificate of honor for over 30 years of service via H.S. production/Tommy Tremblay, and the people of Saguenay Lac St Jean, making them the second band after Voivod to ever receive this honor.
