Quebec, Canada-based black/death metal band NECRONOMICON has announced the addition of bassist Armaros to the group's ranks.
Commented the group: "Some came to try to have the position and left right away, others didn't have time to even play since attitude and personality is really important for us.
"After some months of testing that guy on the road for the last part of 2010 shows, we are happy and proud to introduce the new member of the Okkultis Trinity, Armaros.
"Everyone, welcome him with the respect he deserve.
A new webisode in which the members of NECRONOMICON talk about the addition of their new bassist can be viewed below.
Bassist Diego "D" announced his departure from NECRONOMICON last year in order to undertake "different professional and personal projects" that he wouldn't be "able to do simultaneously with [his previous] band duties."
NECRONOMICON's latest album, "The Return Of The Witch", was released in June 2010 via Austria's Napalm Records. The CD was mastered with reputed engineer Maor Appelbaum (HALFORD, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, THERION) and features guest appearances by Arianne Fleury (ex-AUGURY) and Roxanne Constantin (NEGATIVA, QUO VADIS), among others.
The band's "The Time is Now" video can be viewed below. The clip was shot in 2008 with Benoit Nantel (GHOULUNATICS, URBAN ALIEN, LES ECORCHES) who "did his best to capture the band's atmosphere and power."
