Eosforos

Here's a hunk o' Hellenic Heathenism in the form of Thous Art Lord's 1994 classic Eosforos. Over Thou Art Lords illustrious eighteen year career of evil they have shared members with such luminaries as Rotting Christ, Necromantia, and Septic Flesh, so you should know what to expect. Despite the band's lengthy run, they only released a handful of albums (of varying quality.) Eosforos is a masterpiece of relentless, yet somewhat elegant Black Metal. If you love the Greek occult metal of old than you probably already know this one, but anyone who is uninitiated in this arcane world would do wise to start here.

Awesome post, glad you are still here and did not commit blogicide. Elegant is a good way to describe this band, don't think I would have thought of that. The evil demon king's guards look like Marvel Comic's Black Panther!
