Necrophobic - Death Metal Band
- Band: Necrophobic
- Genre: Death Metal
- Lyrical Themes: Homosexuality, Satanism, Anti-Christianity
Necrophobic is a deathcore band formed by David "Blackmoon" Parland and Joakim Sterner in 1989.
The name of the band was taken from a Slayer song as the band was originally intended to be a dumbed down Slayer-clone, but seeing as death metal was too complicated to play Parland and Sterner settled for playing deathcore with minor scales.
Part of the "melodeath" / Swedeathcore movement alongside bands like In Flames and Arch Enemy, Necrophobic has often been called the "Swedish Slipknot" for their cheesy lyrics and sub-standard musical output.
The Nocturnal Silence is often negatively compared to At the Gates' mediocre Slaughter of the Soul, as both simplify and bastardise death metal into a more generic style known as deathcore.
Many death metal fans would recommend novices to the genre to avoid this mediocre band on the basis that they play "blackened" deathcore, not blackened death metal.
