Varathron

Funeral Storm – Arcane Mysteries (Hells Headbangers)

I guess the Greek black metal scene will always hold a special place in my catalogued heart simply because bands like Necromantia and Varathron were some of the first I came across in my faltering first steps into black metal… Continue Reading →

Gnosis – The Offering of Seven (Terror From Hell)

Archemoron – Year of the Harvester (Southern Prayer)

Archemoron issued forth a cracking album in 2015 with Sulphur and Fire – both nuanced and powerful, like all the best Greek black metal. It turned a few heads and, even though I’d argue that it should have received more… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

Kawir – Exilasmos (Iron Bonehead)

Taking us off on a historic and ageless journey the last album from Greek veterans Kawir Father Sun, Mother Moon absolutely blew me away. The hour plus listening experience was one I completely got absorbed by so was more than… Continue Reading →

Nox Formulae – The Hidden Paths To Black Ecstasy (Dark Descent)

Nox Formulae are a new one on me but apparently they’ve taken some time out of their busy schedule (trying to free the dark one from behind the thin veil of human reality) to release an album. It doesn’t take… Continue Reading →

Varathron – The Confessional of the Black Penitents (Agonia)

Less than 12 months after the release of last year’s mighty black dirge Untrodden Corridors of Hades it’s difficult to imagine what little unfinished business Varathron might have at this point in time. Particularly with the band’s sixth full-length on… Continue Reading →

Saturnian Mist – Chaos Magick (Candlelight)

Saturnian Mist have, over a relatively short space of time, developed a fairly unique and intense take on black metal. It was evident on their early stuff back in 2009 that they were pushing into something more individual than the… Continue Reading →
