VARATHRON’s early albums are considered to be the cornerstones of the Hellenic black metal scene, alongside the releases of Necromantia and Rotting Christ, with whom the group shared members as well as similar fascination towards early style. The band’s trademark are mid-paced riffs that have a classic, old-school feel strengthened by a progressive view, as well as epic atmosphere that only few can match.
“Untrodden Corridors of Hades” was recorded, mixed and engineered by Kostas Kalampokas at Infinite Loop Music Studio (https://www.facebook.com/InfiniteLoopStudio), Greece and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at Strype Audio (1349, Arcturus, Darkthrone, Emperor, Code, Ulver) in Norway. The album artwork has been created by Mark Riddick (Arsis, Absu, Mystifier, The Black Dahlia Murder).
VARATHRON will have its new album released in various formats including: digipack CD, box CD (including a bonus CD with rare tracks, a patch and a poster; limited to 350 copies), black vinyl, coloured vinyl (hand-numbered) and digital.
Greek black metal legends VARATHRON will release their new album “Untrodden Corridors of Hades” on November 21st in Europe and December 9th in the rest of the world via Agonia Records. In anticipation, the band has teamed up with Decibel magazine to stream the album in full. Listen to it at:
