Damn! This reference is an indication of exceptional taste.Being a devoted fan of the local scene myself, I can't understand why you can't appreciate some other stuff too. OK, I can see some objective flaws in our scene that could discourage the outsiders but I think there are more bands that have what it takes to stand out. Tell me some of your favorited genres to give some more targeted recommendations.

How about Agatus? They have recently released one of the best Greek metal albums of all time. A combination of black metal, traditional metal, gothic metal, 70s hard rock etc that was praised by a wide range of fans:

Sorry to knock the whole scene, I'm sure there are more Greek releases I'd like that I just haven't encountered yet. So many bands, so little time.
The thing that's weird is that many of the Greek bands I've heard are good musicians and they play styles of metal I like; they jus seem to lack that "it factor" that puts some bands over the top.

A review of Condemnation - Entering the Gates of Doom has been added. Quite an underrated Greek release in my book. Check it out on youtube if you haven't heard it before.
