Dälek Re-releases ‘Negro Necro Nekros’

16 years after its original release, dälek re-releases its 1998 album, Negro Necro Nekros (Ipecac Recordings). The album includes six bonus tracks and new artwork from Mikel Elam and Paul Romano. Vinyl features a 12pg booklet with liner notes by John Morrison.

Of the album, dälek offered, “This is the record that set this whole thing off more than two and half decades ago. I am so excited to finally have the ENTIRE album on wax!

Digging through the archives I found a few unpolished gems… a few instrumentals from the NNN sessions, a remix, micro cassette recordings that bring you into the actual sessions at Sweetwood Sound, and a raw track I decided to write and record vocals to for this special release.

Oktopus and I linked in 2023 to remaster the album with Alan Douches at West West Side Music, to ensure that the original founding members brought the debut album to light as we envisioned it. Complete with incredible new artwork by Mikel Elam & Paul Romano and an essay about the album and the group by John Morrison.

I couldn’t be prouder of this album and all it represents. It captures who we were in 1998 at the beginning of this journey.“ – dälek 2024
