Not so long after my initial disbelief that any release that came out of Greece, and is labelled "Black Metal", can be good was completely destroyed by Rotting Christ's magnificent Theogonia, here comes another, even greater surprise from the same country. Greece appears to be a home to a very few Black Metal bands, but a very well selected few. So, why is this album, and Astarte all together so special? Well, first of all, "Rise From Within" itself is a very, very good and somewhat original release. Second, the band is composed of a group of ladies that look like they could have easily switched to modelling careers in case the music one failed. Lucky for us, that wasn't the case, because these gals took up their instruments and created some really worthwhile hardcore music.
