Thou Art Lord - Eosforos LP (Silver/Red Swirl vinyl)


Brutal Hellenic Black Metal. Yes, this term does exist; at least it does for me, since I heard this album for the first time. Thou Art Lord, the brainchild of Sakis Tolis (Rotting Christ) and The Magus (Necromantia) released their first demo one year prior to "Eosforos" and it already showed the direction they were going. But damnit, how did I underestimate the amount of brutality displayed on "Eosforos".

The production is as raw and edgy as it could be, the guitars sounds like chainsaws cutting through the air, the vocals are totally pissed off and menacing as hell. The bass rumbles heavily under the palm muted tremolo-picked riffs and the drums thrash their way through the album. Excellent production, everything can be heard well, and as I said, raw as fuck.
