View Full Version : Can't find the band...

2009-06-08, 04:38 PM
I've been told I absolutely need to listen to this thing. Apparently there's a DVD/CD/Artbook of H.R. Giger's work, called H.R. Giger's Necronomicon. I've been told I must hear the music. Only, the person telling me about this cannot think of the name of the band, and my Google-fu is proving useless. Does anybody know the band who was on this?
