Having first re-conjured the evil spirit of the great Necromantia and their brethren with this three-song offering, Necromantic Worship returned a mere several months later with its second demo, The Calling…, which continues in the same arcane spirit as the first, while adding new elements which serve to yield an even greater result. Still enshrouded in the same occult atmosphere as the previous recording, Necromantic Worship’s newest hymns persist in being primarily driven by the locomotive effect of Ghûllzaraën’s pulsing bass lines. Unlike the debut recording, however, the bass guitar on the The Calling… is more perfectly bound and enhanced by the irreplaceable sound of live, organic percussion, as performed by Daemonomancer from the Canadian band, Goathammer. Additionally, the band saw fit to recruit the services of Zagan, best known as the guitarist of the legendary Countess, to further augment their archaic sound with a series of inspired, climactic guitar leads. This compilation LP compiles their two demos on one LP with a brand new gatefold jacket layout.
