EXCLUISVE PREMIERE: “Piercing the Cervix of Nehemah” – TRACK FROM THE DEBUT EP OF SERPENT SPELLS

‘Metal’ has never thrived in Bangladesh for many reasons, mostly due to geography, culture and popular beliefs. Metal has therefore always been a very ‘underground’ phenomena, in terms of quality bands, promoters, labels and all other aspects. Only a handful of bands have shone from here. Heavy metal is mostly restricted to capital and few other large cities. The fact is, out of other styles of metal, ‘black metal’ has always suffered from numbers and yes, there were only a few classy black metal acts that had emerged from this land.

Dismal Scorn from Abyss: An Interview with Necroabyssious of Varathron

Varathron, needs no introduction to black metal enthusiasts. The band has been the front runner of the Greek black metal scene along with the ‘Unholy Trinity’ accompanied by Rotting Christ and Necromantia. Throughout their existence since the formation in 1988, Varathron has influenced a hell lot of bands to play black metal, worship the deities of the supreme darkness. Varathron was also one of the early black metal bands to emerge and perhaps, among the first ones to incorporate occultism into their music rather than pursuing orthodox Satanism and anti religious beliefs. Yet, Varathron has still been one of the most evil and pure black metal bands that exist out there. I had a chance to continue a session with their iconic frontman Stefan Necroabyssious! I was lucky enough to talk with him regarding his views on Varathron, his philosophy and perception on the current black metal scene.
