Celebrating their 35th anniversary this year, Varathron have by no means lost their touch during that time; in fact, The Crimson Temple suggests the complete opposite.

Man, that new track they released is killer. Very melodic, with keyboards even! I'm definitely looking forward to this album.

This album is a very melodic shift. Still sounding like Varathron, but I don't remember them ever being so melodic.

Another majestic black metal release coming out this year. One of the best to be honest, this is how pure archaic evil sounds like

An absolute masterpiece, coming from the triarchy of the Greek black metal scene.

Excelent disc, but very far from being pure black metal. I hear an almost melodic death metal album here. Drums are the only element that remind me of black.

First time listening to them and everyone says this is their most melodic album. Maybe that's one reason why fell in love instantly. 'Sinners of the Crimson Temple' is going to stay in my playlist for a long time.

In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘
