Hellenic Steel - An archive of Greek and Cypriot Metal

Post#1 » Tue Jul 27, 2021 3:02 pm

Today we open up this new project, written & researched by Johan Pettersson (Spinal) - very much a work in progress but definitely an ambitious one. From my own standpoint it's been an intriguing challenge to build something more advanced, technically as well as graphically.

PLEASE spread the link & word through whatever channels are at your disposal, and let us know what you think...

Many, many thanks to DaN for hosting, programming and designed the H.S.A. I would still be restricted to writing on paper, hadn't it been for your proposal. :)

In the future, I'll make use of this thread for bigger updates (chunks of reviews, interviews, compilations, etc.)

Nice work!
I guess you've just started so no need for band suggestions yet.

Thanks, Prowler. It's kind of cool that we both started these projects in parallell without knowing of each other at first (well I think it was you who originally suggested that I scrapped the book-idea and went digital instead).

In case you know of any bands from the 1980s/1990s starting on letters A to D that aren't included so far, please go ahead and share!

Maybe I missed something when reading the introduction but will the project include only "classic" metal bands or also more extreme ones? In the latter case there is plenty of work ahead of you indeed.

All generes, including Black, Death, Grind, even "dungeon synth" (whatever that means..). Just click the genre-links under the "BAND SELECT"-banner...

"dungeon synth" (whatever that means..)
Casio-black metal á la an incarcerated Varg Vikernes.
Laugh at you in ecstasy, wallow in the gore.
Blast you with their twisted minds, behold the Dogs Of War.

Good luck with that very ambitious project, I like the fact that you're going so deep with full texts on bands!

I have the Cthonium rehearsal tape, I ripped it years ago but I'm not sure if I kept the file... I'll look into it or rip it again and will let you know. It's not very good I must say, not even close to their glorious compilation track.

Thanks Z.D.!

I’d love to hear that CTHONIUM rehearsal if you ever find it (even if it sounds shit, which I can very much imagine it doing...)

Have the Cthonium Rehearsal too, but it was labeled on all tape trading lists back in the day as Reheasal 1993, with 6 trax that noone had titles for.

Right, will look into that and make proper adjustments. Unless the reh. contains only unique tracks it would be possible to make out some titles by comparing with the demo. If anyone cares, haha...

Almost certain both exists as different rehearsals, my tape has on side A the demo + 1 track from a rehearsal, and another full rehearsal (different recording for sure) on side B. This is startling my interest, I'll go look into this as soon as possible.
