Staff review by
For all of you who think that Rotting Christ formed the sound of the Greek black metal scene you should know that they didn't form this sound alone. The bands that formed this scene unique from the Norwegian sound were two: Rotting Christ and Varathron. Two bands that started together during the second half of the 80s and with their demos/splits/7" and their debut albums, "Thy Mighty Contract" (Rotting Christ) and "His Majesty At The Swamp" (Varathron), gave birth to the Greek black Metal scene. Rotting Christ happened to be the "lucky" ones and sign a contract with renowned labels Osmose Productions (a cult name for the rising underground extreme metal scene at that time) and later, after a small passage from the Greek Unisound Records, Century Media. Varathron didn't have the chance to sign contracts with labels that would give them the chance to be equally well-known, something they deserve.
