Nicosia, Cyprus based Nekhrah have their debut, self-released album, 'Cosmic Apostasy', coming out on 29th September 2017 and today, the track 'Foredoomed' is premiering here on MetalTalk.

Nekhrah were formed in 2011, under the name Impalement and now the four-piece have distinguished themselves locally through their signature and unique blend of spine-crushing riffs and melody coupled with their vocalist's distinctive vocals.

They released a home-recorded demo in 2014, under their former name. 'Cosmic Apostasy' was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music.


The band name Nekhrah is an Anglicised version of the Greek word Νέκρα which means death/deadness and/or emptiness in Greek.

The philosophy behind the band is Nihilistic. That is to say, the belief that existence is meaningless and that there is no inherent meaning in anything we do, think or experience. The lyrics revolve heavily around misanthropy, cataclysm, self-destruction and a desire of non-existence.

The album's artwork and the design of the band logo is by Maciej Kamuda.

Nekhrah are:
A.- vocals
C. - guitars
M. - drums
T. - bass


"Humanity is but a herd of ritualistic apes that congregate to ceremonialise their own insignificance."

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
