BattleroaR - Codex Epicus (Cruz Del Sur)

BattleroaR – Codex Epicus (Cruz Del Sur)

BattleroaR (still persisting with the capital R at the end of their name so lets humour them and not spoil things eh?) don’t do anything by half. It amazes me that it’s taken them until their fifth album to get the word Epic into one.. Read More
Acherontas – Faustian Ethos (Agonia)

Acherontas – Faustian Ethos (Agonia)

Acherontas still struggle to shake off a questionable legacy (not helped by calling your previous outfit after a concentration camp) but nonetheless have managed to position themselves at the centre of the occult black metal movement with an output that has been increasingly adventurous as..

Heretic Cult Redeemer – Kelevsma (Shadow Records / Regain Records)

Heretic Cult Redeemer – Kelevsma (Shadow Records / Regain Records)

I had all but forgotten about Greek mob Heretic Cult Redeemer until desperately trying to find space in black metal towers (ie my CD racking) and attempting to fit the recent Hermóðr album in them, when their debut came tumbling out. I guess it was.. Read More
Varathron – Patriarchs of Evil (Agonia)

Varathron – Patriarchs of Evil (Agonia)

Anyone who hasn’t been following events with the mighty Varathron – shame on you. For anyone that has welcome back to the unholy mass that can only be modern day Varathron in all its Hellenic black metal glory. These Greek stalwarts are often mentioned alongside.. Read More
Nigredo – Flesh Torn, Spirit Pierced (Transcending Obscurity)

Nigredo – Flesh Torn, Spirit Pierced (Transcending Obscurity)

No-one could ever say that Greece isn’t good for black metal as well as history and holidays, amongst other things. Nigredo, as you will gather, fit this bill, and are now following up their 2015 EP “Facets of Death” with this, their debut album. While.. Read More
Chaostar - The Undivided Light (Season of Mist)

Chaostar – The Undivided Light (Season of Mist)

Returning for the second release on Season of Mist, SepticFlesh guitarist Christos Antoniou’s Chaostar’s fifth album, ‘The Undivided Light’, is definitely an eclectic mix of genres that befits the “Avant-Garde Ambient Classical” moniker given by the record label. Joining Christos is Androniki Skoula on vocals,.. Read More
Poem – Unique (ViciSolum)

Poem – Unique (ViciSolum)

I know from seeing Poem play live that their brand of progressive metal is far-reaching and ambitious. “Unique” is the Greek band’s third album. “False Morality”, like everything that follows it, is a complex compendium of progressive metal. The dark patterns belie the high pitch.. Read More
Ocean of Grief – Nightfall’s Lament (Rain Without End)

Ocean of Grief – Nightfall’s Lament (Rain Without End)

Ocean of Grief’s debut EP Fortress of My Dark Self caused a bit of a stir in the doom metal underground with its grand and doleful lamentation that left many a doom death-monger in pit of euphoric dejection. Is this what misery really feels like?.. Read More
Jute Gyte / Spectral Lore – Helian (I, Voidhanger Records)

Jute Gyte / Spectral Lore – Helian (I, Voidhanger Records)

Black metal has its innovators and then it has individuals like Jute Gyte’s Adam Kalmbach and Ayloss from Spectral Lore. Kalmbach is nothing short of prolific with 27 full-length albums since 2006, perhaps not that unusual in the black metal community, but rather than album.. Read More
Meden Agan – Catharsis (No Remorse)

Meden Agan – Catharsis (No Remorse)

“Catharsis” is the fourth outing for Greek Symphonic Metallers Meden Agan, who continue to make further in-roads into the imposing territory occupied by bands like Epica, Xandria and Nightwish (by pure coincidence, and in-keeping with Symphonic Metal history, it has a bit in common with.. Read More
LÜÜP - Canticles of the Holy Scythe (I, Voidhanger)

LÜÜP – Canticles of the Holy Scythe (I, Voidhanger)

While LÜÜP may be the brainchild of Greek composer and multi-instrumentalist Stelios Romaliadis, it’s far from a solo project and while I usually comment on individuals on each song, a quick look at the discography on their official site where you can list the musicians on.. Read More
Mother Of Millions - Sigma (ViciSolum)

Mother Of Millions – Sigma (ViciSolum)

Returning once again to cast their dark and captivating musical mastery over us all, Athenian five piece Mother Of Millions are set to unleash ‘Sigma’, their second full length release and follow up to the incredible debut offering ‘Human’ (2014). Conceptual again like its predecessor,.. Read More
