Unearthing The Greek Metal Underground
A couple of months ago, I wrote a column examining three metal bands from Turkey, the country which bridges Europe and Asia, and a conversation was struck wherein I mentioned the idea of checking out some of the underground metal music that Turkey’s neighbours, Greece have to offer. Greece is certainly one of the most fascinating countries in Europe, if not the world, owing to its ancient history, philosophers, contributions to science, maths and politics and mythology, and it’s a place that enjoys heavy metal music too. Some of the more significant Greek metal bands around today include Rotting Christ, Firewind and SepticFlesh, but this week we will uncover three bands which aren’t as well known.
Of all the bands featured this week, Suicidal Angels are probably the most well known, having worked extremely hard over the past few years to spread their brand of thrash metal. The group was formed in the Greek capital city of Athens in 2001 by singing guitarist, Nick Melissourgos and eventually recorded their first full length album, "Eternal Domination" in 2007, which was released in July of that year. The record did well enough to gain them a place supporting such thrash legends as Overkill, Kreator and Onslaught. The release of their second album, "Sanctify the Darkness" further solidified their place as one of the best young thrash metal acts around, and led them to more appearances with high profile artists, as well as slots at such festivals as Sonisphere and Wacken Open Air. The band has since released two more full length records, the most recent of which, "Bloodbath," hit the shelves last year.

Birth Through Gore Releasing Debut Album
Greek extreme death metal band Birth Through Gore will be unleashing its debut "Reign of Depravity" via Sevared Records. Over on YouTube you can hear one of the songs they will include on this debut release, plus you can watch "In the Brim of Decimation" below. Birth Through Gore has been streaming these tracks while they prepare for the release of the record.
The members of the band came together from the Greek bands Evade and Erectus between 2007 and 2009. John 'Rem3dy' Nakos from the brutal death metal band Mortal Torment, who has created art for bands such as Devourment and Prostitute Disfigurement, made the album cover for "Reign of Depravity." Stream two more tracks from Birth Through Gore over on MySpace.
