After a night of heavy drinking and blastbeats at a local venue in Linköping early 2012, blackened thrash metal came into mind. Two weeks later Nekrokraft was formed by Angst (vocals, guitar and bass at the time), Doc (lead guitar) and NekroBlaster (drums) with the ambition to play fast, aggressive and obscure underground music.
The result was Nekrokraft’s first singel, The Cunt Of Bridgecheecks, containing 2 songs which features raw black/thrash-metal and shrieking vocals. In April the same year the first EP, 666 Ways to Torture was released and Monger joined Nekrokraft as the bass player shortly after the recording. A couple of months later a week-long recording and material writing session in an old earthcellar, far out on the countryside resulted in another EP, Witches Funeral.
In November Nekrokraft were played on indonesian radio, the episode featured an 20 minutes long interview and songs from all releases were played. The 22nd of December marked the first live appearance with Antichrist, Vampire and Vanhelgd. A metal fanzine under the name Suicide Scriptures from the UK visited Nekrokraft for an video-interview and gig-review.
”Nekrokraft is epic, doom-laced Black Metal with moments of explosive brutality and speed that almost raise the hairs on the back of one’s neck. Shownmanship obviously abounds throughout the set; the singer and bassist displaying signs of learning from the best in how to titillate a crowd but it is NekroAngst’s particular style with the crowd which is inspiring as it displays all the hallmarks of classic frontman potential. ”

NekroBlaster decided to leave Nekrokraft and was replaced by Moloch. A few gigs around Sweden were made, then Monger was replaced by Ghol on bass. With the band focused on a more theatrical approach recruited Iron on guitar, witch left Angst the possibility to focus on the vocals. In 2016 Nekrokraft signed with The Sign Records and will release a 7-track album the 7th of November the same year.
“Nekrokraft is all about witches brew, the fucking woods and thrashing through the boundaries of hell.”
