VARATHRON (Gre): “The Lament of Gods” Cd 1999 Pagan


Light years from their brilliant, obscure, infamous demotape VARATHRON nowadays play the game of gay keyboards, with a desperate feel in the vocals, and overly long songs. The keyboards have no more the chilling old school Greek melodic touch they got years ago, the melody of Death and despair, they’re just bright, almost 80’s and just color the songs with some melody for easy listening that I might only associate to pop music. Anyway some of the distant class still clings to the disc, if you consider the music on the overall and do not concentrate on the sinbgle elements. I admit they still retain some originality, but not the incisiveness of their early days. Another band fucked up.
