This album has a total of seven tracks and the album art portrays a dark, sinister and ungodly image which might very well be the core theme of this album.

Rotting Christ

Struggling on the scene for almost 30 years and having to put up with all kinds of extremists trying to shut the message they want to spread. From changing names on live appearances or changing three genres to get what they are now, Rotting Christ reached the mountain peak of their existence. Rituals is what has been written in their DNA during the time of their existence as a band and collecting and absorbing the traditions, emotions and essence of all the countries and people they have encountered through out the years of touring.

Zebu is a heavy/southern metal band, based in Athens, Greece that has been slowly, yet steadily, setting foot in the dim-lit rooms of Athens’ underground scene. Not only that, but they also have released their first collection of songs in the form of a 12’’ vinyl EP strangely called At the Delta of Venus, an EP that I am setting out to explore with this review.

Amken is a brand new thrash quartet rising from the Greek underground basements to provoke every thrasher’s taste for spiced up metal joy. The band was originally formed in 2011 in Athens, a place where many new bands appear and a real struggle is required to stand out from the bunch. By not, Amken gave the metal world only one release in 2014 named Adrenaline Shot. This EP is the first appearance by which the band is going to be ‘judged’ further on in their careers.

Endless Recovery- Revel in Demise

Artist: 
Endless Recovery
Release: 
Revel in Demise
Label: 
Witches Brew

 It is a rarity nowadays to find a really worthy old-school thrash metal band, from the thousands generic ones that appear weekly. Of course, the style maybe has been too exploited and not much is left for young bands to experiment on, but leaving a significant mark in the compositions is what makes you a band.

 Embraced by the moon’s envious glow, she seems like the loneliest one alive…I’m talking about our planet – The Earth. Focusing on the album art, it expresses a dark toned melancholic atmosphere, seems perfect for this album “A World Afraid Of Light” since it is created by Moaning Silence, a female fronted Atmospheric Metal band based in Athens, Greece.

Declaration

 OMG! Did you look at that album cover? Possessed body, releasing dark aura with bleeding dark nerves, a stunning piece of work by Neopithecus illustration who are responsible for Art direction and layout design. The album art is nothing short of graceful darkness and reflects well on the contents of the album and I’m positive that it alone will grab the attention of any dark metal addicts like myself. This stunning piece of art belongs to the album “Declaration” by RandomWalk.
