Necronomicon were founded in 1971 in Aachen, West Germany by Norbert Breuer, Harald and Walter Sturm, later with Fistus Dickmann and bassist Detlev Hakenbeck. In February 1972, Hakenbeck was replaced by Bernhard Hocks
Sturm quit to join Rufus Zuphall, while Dieter Ose replaced Dickmann on organ and keyboards, and Gerd Libber replaced Hocks on bass. Throughout 1973 they worked on new material, and some of their compositions at this time were nearly an hour long, and almost impossible to play live, and the band found themselves having to edited them down to a length of 10 to 15 minutes.
In 1974, Sturm returned to the band, and the group recorded a demo cassette live in their living room. The group may have existed as late as 1981 though no other recordings were made.
