If anyone here ever wished classic Varathron had a baby with Hammerheart or Blood On Ice, here's your dream child.

Greece has a notable metal scene since early 90s. It was the era when many bands came out although metal releases exist since 1985. In my opinion Flame's "Made in hell" is the first metal album in Greece!

Some great bands that someone non-greek must check:

Flames
Spitfire
Sarissa
Rust
Crush
Deceptor
Exoristoi (in greek means "Exiles". This group has greek lyrics but still epic!)
Magna Carta
Death Courier
Power Crue
Dark Nova
Marauder
Inner Wish

and many other!

The greek metal scene has many treasures to offer. I 'll resist naming every greek band i like so i will just list a few that are absolutely worth checking out. (I tried not not to repeat bands that were writen above.)

Dark nightmare - Heavy, Power, Epic -
(One of the best acts, they have released two full lengths you should DEFINITELY check them out.)

Sarissa - Heavy -
( Demo 1987 is maybe the best demo in the history of greek heavy metal. The other releases follow more prog paths.)

Spitfire - Heavy -
(Together with Sarissa they are the living history of heavy metal in Greece. Two albums so far both are incredible.)

Wardrum - Heavy, Power, Progressive -
(Relatively new band in Greece. They have two albums full of powerfull riffs and mindblowing melodies.)

Emerald sun - Power -
(You will be surprised of the technical level of this band reminding of early Helloween and Stratovarious)

Elwing - Heavy, Power -
(Immortal Stories i think is a masterpiece in every aspect.)

Erratic Escape - Heavy -
( With only one album they stuck in my mind with their dark riffs and melodic vocal lines.)

Power Crue - Heavy -
(Sign of rage is one of the best albums i know. The band is still active.)

Validor - Heavy Power -
(One man band with very distinctive sound. Check Dawn of the Avenger.)

Wishdoom - Heavy, Doom -
(Their only full length release Helepolis is a surprise in every aspect. Be sure to check at least The battle of PLatea.)

Arryan Path - Heavy, Power -
(The moment you hear the voice of Nikolas Leptos you will stick with it. Every album is masterpiece. They are from Cyprus.)

Battleroar - Heavy, Power, Doom -
(Their reputation is growing so i think you already know of this incredible band.)

Angel Heart - Heavy -
(Journey to nowhere and especially March of death are the kind of songs that will haunt you forever.)

Also for anyone interested: Sarissa, Dark Nightmare, Spitfire, Wardrum, Wishdoom, Arryan path are all working in new albums..

I know and like some of the bands named here, like Crucifier, Flames, Necromantia, Rotting Christ, Varathron, Witchcurse, Rust - "Shoot them Higher" LP (since i found their website that gave a free download of it).
I think in a box of records, I own Lethal Saint-"Saint Strikes Back" (2012) 7 inch single, but haven't played it yet.

Will have to check out the videos, and other bands mentioned here
