Necropolis was engineered, mixed and mastered by Max Morton of Morton Studios, who has also remastered the entire SACROSANCT back catalogue. A prolific professional with a broad clientele, Max has worked with a wide variety of acts, including prominent Ukranian metalcore combo Jinjer. The objective with Necropolis was to record a classic, analogue-sounding album using modern technologies, and at the same time avoid any modern metal clichés.
The epic cover art for Necropolis was designed by Giannis Nakos based on the band’s ideas, and perfectly portrays the album’s dark subject matter. It prominently features SACROSANCT’s new mascot, the Weeping Angel – a guardian and an avenger of injustice.
While Necropolis bears all of the hallmarks and intricacies that characterise SACROSANCT, it displays a more mature and focused song-writing approach. Songs such as “The New Age Of Fear”, “My Last White Light” and “Only One God” are lyrically thought-provoking, creating a brand of metal that still makes the band hard to categorise. Like its predecessor, Tragic Intense, which was released in 1993,Necropolis places a strong emphasis on melancholy melodies and clean vocals, but also incorporates many harmony guitar parts, faster tempos and some modern twists that mark the beginning of a new chapter for the band.
