Necromancy, Originally named R.O.T. (Reek of Terror), evolved in the Death Metal scene in late 80’s. They were among the Second Wave of Black Metal among bans like Rotting Christ, Varathron, and Necromantia which later became the fathers of Greek Black Metal. They were originally formed Chris Tsoukalas, Giannis Karasarinis, Vagelis Vafias and Magus Wampyr Daoloth. They mistakenly passed as just a “pre-Necromantia” project due to Magus Wampyr Daoloth involvement in the band until his departure in 1990.
