Guest review by
During the early '90s, a new genre of metal was beginning to develop - we know it as the second wave of black metal - and the Norwegian black metal scene was leading the way with bands, such as Darkthrone , Burzum, Immortal, Emperor and Mayhem, who were all amongst the most popular. However, during this time, Greece was also contributing to this second wave, most notably the band Rotting Christ, with their debut Thy Mighty Contract. At the same time, Varathron, who have always remained in their shadow, also released their debut, His Majesty At The Swamp, which is widely less known.
