Interview with guitarist/vocalist
Rob “The Witch” Tremblay

By Peter Atkinson

With their symphonic black/death metal bluster and ashen, war-painted/leather-cloaked appearance, it’s easy to see how Montreal’s Necronomicon draw comparisons to Behemoth and Dimmu Borgir – at least from a musical and aesthetic standpoint. But from a philosophical perspective – not to mention their panda-face makeup and three-person lineup – Necronomion have much more in common with Immortal.

Yet where Immortal long have reveled in tales of battles and demons in their mythical frozen kingdom on Blashyrkh, Necronomicon embarked on a more mystical, transcendent journey through the cosmos – and man’s place within the greater whole of the universe – with their 1999 full-length debut Pharoah of Gods. That voyage continues with their fifth and latest effort Advent of the Human God, due out March 25 on Season Of Mist.

During an interview via Skype from Montreal – and later via e-mail – founder/frontman/guitarist/songwriter/producer Rob “The Witch” Tremblay spoke, among other things, about Necronomicon’s unique, often otherworldly, take on death/black metal and how the band’s origins in the wilds of Northeast Canada play into that, the challenges of trying to pull of such ambitious music as a three-piece – the band is rounded out by long-time drummer Rick and newish bassist Mars – and the uncomfortable run-in with the German thrash band they have shared the Necronomicon moniker with for more than 20 years.

Freddy is the only remaining original member in the German thrash metal act Necronomicon who released their debut album back in 1985.  Freddy and I talked about the bands seventh album that came out at the beginning of the year called INVICTUS. Besides the new album we also talked about guest appearances on the new album and about the bands past, present, and future. Be sure to check out Necronomicon if you’re into thrash metal the slightest.
