The Missouri-based extreme blackened death metal group NEVALRA was founded in 2013 by guitarist/ vocalist Scott Eames (Thy Antichrist) and quickly evolved from a one-man band into a full-fledged group. The group self-released several singles that were compiled and issued as “The Black Flame” EP, which MetalSucks writer Phil Boozeman named one of his Top 10 metal albums of 2015. (“Eames’ shrieks need to be heard in person to be believed,” Phil wrote, “because what you hear on the recording is exactly how Eames and the rest of the band sound live.") The band has headlined extensively throughout the Midwest in addition to performing alongside such notable groups as Deicide, Suffocation, Venom Inc. and Trivium. In 2018, the group made their second appearance at the Full Terror Assault festival, where they shared the stage with the likes of Demolition Hammer, Death Angel and Immolation, and Cincinnati's Transplant Fest (Incantation, Ringworm). In early 2019, NEVALRA signed with M-Theory Audio and put the finishing touches on their full-length debut, “Conjure the Storm,” which was mixed and mastered by the legendary Dan Swano (Asphyx, Incantation, Marduk). The cover art was designed by Seth Siro Anton of Septicflesh, who has previously collaborated with the likes of Decapitated, Belphegor and Nile.
