Genre: Black Metal
Country: Greece
Label: Agonia Records
Year: 2014

I eulogize Varathron, the archons of blasphemic Hellenic metal for this phenomenal acoustic genesis. Untrodden Corridors of Hades is a synthesis of unorthodox ideas and abyssic melodies of gamostavrika esthesis. In an epoch characterized by monopolistic Norwegian black metal or American post-black, Varathron dynamically practice idiomorphicautochthonmetal. Byzantine hymns, mixed with polymorphous riffs, tyrannical growls, herculean drumming, and melancholic bass lines. To my thesis, the history of Varathron is parallel to the Hellenic metal one and in this sphere it has stigmatized the scene.

In my epilogue, I emphasize how magically Varathron have practiced 7 episodes of chaos and catastrophe in an optical disc. For those who agonize between the Scylla of cosmopolitan metal plethora and the Charybdis of hypocritical musicians, Untrodden Corridors of Hades is your conium.
