N.A.O.S. is an one-man-project of Magus Wampyr Daoloth of Necromantia.
The debut album "The Final Harvest" was composed, performed, recorded and mixed 
at Storm Studio in autumn '93 - winter '94. 
It was released in 1995 through German label Itsemuhra Arts and the LP version by Dark Side Records.
The music here is not Black Metal but Gothic - Darkwave
The vocals are mostly spoken words varied from clean ones to more deep or distorted ones 
and the lyrics are dealing with satanism and individualism. 
The atmosphere is a very dark one, based mainly to the haunting keyboard melodies 
(once more some eastern influences are noticeable) of Magus Wampyr Daoloth and the slow beats. 
The album is very close to the haunting atmosphere of the first Diabolos Rising album "666",
if you remove the guitars and the vocals of course, and also both of these albums
are sharing a common track "Eshaton (Eshatologia Part II)", known as " Χ - Ξ - ΣΤ' " on the Diabolos Rising album.
All lyrics are written by Magus Wampyr Daoloth except "Invictus" by W.C. Henley.



  1. It's been a long while I last listened to N.A.O.S. - I had some of the stuff dubbed, including (I think) this album. Time to refresh memories, thanks!
