BIRTH OF TRAGEDY - INTERVIEW WITH HOR - GREEK BLACK METAL

Exitium by HOR



"Well we play traditional black metal in essence and purity but in our way. we do not re-invent the wheel and we do not care to do it. If you love black metal…then probably you will like our album" (Ophion)
Interview with Ophion from HOR

Hor is quite fascinating...This Greek duo has just released, with "Exitium", a Black Metal album of rare intensity, emblematic darkness and absolute firepower. Direct heirs of the big names of the Scandinavian scene of the 90s, they provoke a shiver comparable to what I felt at the time when I heard Satyricon or Emperor. There are worse references, don't you think? Ophion, a member of this mysterious and surprising group tells us a little more



Hor, thank you for answering my questions! Can you tell us the story of this group that seems to "come out of nowhere"?
Hi Pierre. Thank you for this interview. The band HOR was formed in November of 2017. Before that date we had some black metal projects but it was di…

ORDER OF THE EBON HAND - VII : THE CHARIOT - 2019 - SATANATH RECORDS
Black Metal from Greece





Order Of The Ebon Hand...what a nice name for a Black Metal band...With this so cute "satanic sect" side...The Greeks of OOTEH sign here their great comeback, after 14 years without an album.
They have named themselves their Black Metal "archetypal" (see on their Bandcamp) and yet...nothing archetypal here !
If we find the fundamentals of "Trve" Black Metal (darkness, occultism, witch's voice, dark riffs), it's still a very original band we're dealing with. Their keyboard reminds the best of the 60's psychedelism (a bit like Type O'Negative who themselves were inspired by... 60's psychedelism) and a track like "Dreadnaught" could have been on an old Arcturus album. 



Of course, when the goal is to riffle hard and give some fire, the Athenians know how to do it with brio, for example with the more classic but powerful and swift "Mo…

INHIBITIONS - WITH THE FULLMOON ABOVE MY HEAD - 2019 - SATANATH RECORDS






The Athenians of Inhibitions practice a cold Black Metal in the great tradition of the second wave of Scandinavian Black Metal. So don't expect to find here an ersatz of Rotting Christ or Varathron: it's in the North that the Greeks find their inspiration. 
Velocious, melodic, powerful, based on tremoli of riffs of the best aspect, putting forward a hoarse gorgonian voice, the duo's Black Metal is perfectly mastered, and their use of frequent tempo changes avoids any form of possible lassitude.
There's only one secret to making a successful album: writing a real record requires having real songs whatever the musical style. And the Greeks have understood this very well.


Les athéniens d'Inhibitions pratiquent un Black Metal racé s'inscrivant dans la grande tradition de la deuxième vague du Black Metal Scandinave. N'espérez donc pas ici retrouver un ersatz de Rotting Christ ou de Varathron : c…

"HOR (Athènes, Grèce) est le projet Black Metal de deux individualités, fondé à l'automne 2017 par Ophion (Guitares) & Throne (Basse / Chant).


Ophion & Throne se connaissent très jeunes et partagent leur passion pour le metal et surtout la vraie musique Black Metal. Ils ont eu de nombreux projets avec d’autres musiciens, mais les constantes divergences de création, l’approche musicale du genre et le point de vue spécifique qu’ils avaient sur la façon dont le Black Metal “devait” sonner, les ont forcés à dissoudre leurs précédents projets.

Ils ont décidé de se concentrer sur leur rêve vicieux, celui de créer un projet qui exprimera la profondeur très sombre de leur âme. À l'automne 2017, après avoir partagé pendant de longues ann…
