Nekrographie is the process that captures the essence of rituals and performances to lay bare their bones and transform them into visual fragments...
Everything started in 2007 at the infamous show of the Norwegian black metal band Taake in Essen. Originally labeled as Blutbilder before changing to Nekrographie in 2009.
Over the course of the years Nekrographie enjoyed resident status with the following organisations and festivities:
Stage Secrets Management: 2011-2013
Aurora Infernalis: 2011-2015
Rhein In Blood: 2012-2015
Furthermore NKR's wanderlust soon took him to the road, covering rituals and processions within Great Britain, Norway, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium, United States, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Italy and France.
