xhrl_ With 3 of 4 tracks from the earliest days, this EP showcases their slower & sparser approach. Even the faster, blasting components make a show, so it seems that, in their ‘classic’ era, Varathron focussed more on the rhythmic & percussive elements of their music. Another live track comes from 2014’s LP; this rendition renders it closer to the older material, which highlights the similar songwriting. The production unifies these tracks; in some ways being more polished than the original versions.

about

New seven-track EP from Greek black metal legends, VARATHRON. "The Confessional Of The Black Penitents" precedes the release of the band's sixth full-length album and features three new songs along with four classic tracks recorded live in 2015.

Placed amongst the forefathers of Hellenic black metal scene, VARATHRON has spawned albums that are celebrated as the cornerstones of Greek metal. Alongside Necromantia and Rotting Christ, with whom the group shared members, VARATHRON's fascination towards early style remains unique and forthright. Since their inception back in 1988, the band's trademark are mid-paced riffs that have a classic, old-school feel strengthened by a progressive view as well as epic atmospheres that only few can match.

The live tracks were recorded in Larisa (Greece) on the 16th of May, 2015 and mastered by Achilleas Kalantzis (guitars). Tracks 2 & 3 have been recorded and mixed at Infinite Loop Music Studio (Greece) and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at Strype Audio (1349, Arcturus, Darkthrone, Emperor, Code, Ulver) in Norway.

The front cover artwork and layout include paintings by Carlos Schwabe (July 21, 1866 - 22 January, 1926); a Swiss Symbolist painter and printmaker.
