"We're a two piece band from Greece , playing metal ( with a black metal nucleus as i like to call it/perceive it). I wouldn't label it as metal to it's classic sense but this where this music draws it's primary essence from. The good ( i like to believe) and 'raw' non-commercial side of metal music , where there is still ground to explore. We're playing black metal in terms of how we regard black metal to be ; as an awakening of the self on many levels. We're not playing black metal if black metal only has to do with blastbeats,no matter how much we enjoy hearing them in other bands.

I'm playing guitar and doing the vocals and a friend , Andreas, is playing the drums. We started playing together for about a year now and this album is our first effort. It's going to be released soon on 12" LP only (for now) through Venerate Industries , an independent label from Greece"

It's also worth mentioning that their vocalist/guitarist have playied in several other bands, including Brotherhood of Sleep (psychedelic doom), Now Exploding in Saigon (blackened hardcore), and Ancestral House of the Sun (folk). I've listened to the two tracks on NEiS' bandcamp page, and wasn't disappointed - it's awesome experimental BM/hardcore. Going to check out the rest of his bands in the near future.


  1. This is really good. Great to hear something like this coming out of Greece.
