With a decade of existence, Ipoh’s bound Necrotic Chaos has carved their name as
a force to be reckoned with in the Malaysia Death Metal scene.
They’re proving their status right by producing a number of critically-acclaimed
releases and ‘tight- as- fuck’ life performances.
It all begins in the end of 1992, when a seminal deathrash band Glottis went
into bits and pieces. Some of the band members decided to continue their quest
in a meaner, heavier, ferocious medium. And the answer, obviously- Brutal Death Metal!
Influences and inspirations are derived from accomplished acts such as Terrorizer,
Slayer, Death and Morbid Angel. The damned first incarnation of Necrotic Chaos
consists of Adik (bass/vocals), Jadam (drums) and Is (guitars).
Shortly after, Dark-E joined as the second guitarist.
In 1993, a two-song promo tape was released as their starting mark in the scene.
This promo tape was widely applauded by the local Death Metal fans back then.
1994 saw the release of what would be considered one of the best release ever
unleashed by the local underground scene, the split-tape with legendary
Singapore grindcore maniacs Demisor.
Necrotic Chaos delivered 5 songs (including a cover of Brain Dead, arguably one
of the best Death Metal band ever spawned by Malaysia) in this much sought after,
limited cassette release.
Ipoh is becoming the hunting ground for excellent underground Metal acts, with
fine releases churned out by Langsuyr, Profane Creation, Hayagriva, and Athotorgh.
As a tribute to this demented city, a compilation
‘Ipoh Metal Militant Supremacist’
was released by Ultra Hingax Productions, the first local independent Metal label.
Necrotic Chaos offered 2 songs in this compilation, alongside the aforementioned bands.
Besides, they have also featured in various other local and foreign compilations.

have been performed, and they are well known for delivering crushing live sets.

Penang. They don’t rule out the possibilities of playing in Indonesia and Thailand soon!
As always in a band, line-up changes are inevitable. Necrotic Chaos nowadays
comprises of Adik (bass/vocals), Jadam (guitars), Wira (drums) and
Accomplished musicians they are, the members also involves in various other activities
and projects. Wira and Jadam are sessionists for Koffin Kanser.

and musical involvements helps to form a solid foundation for Necrotic Chaos
hard hitting music.
10 years of existence requires progression. 2002 will mark the release of a split CD with
Singaporean Cardiac Necropsy. It will be released by the Singapore label Dark Artz Records.
It will be followed by their much expected full length release under
Ultra Hingax Productions. Still staying true to the Brutal Death Metal concept

The recordings are handled by themselves, done in numerous studios to ensure maximum
satisfaction in the result; and to be able to exploit all available recording technology
to its fullest.
