Zemial – Sleeping under Tartarus (MCD)
Classic Zemial – their debut EP from 1992. Featuring fully restored audio from the original master tapes, fantastic sound!
Whenever the golden trinity of Necromantia, Rotting Christ, and Varathron of the early Greek black metal scene is brought up, one should add one more name – Zemial. Whereas the meandering path of the band has encompassed diverse styles during the last few decades, ranging from raw black/thrash metal and epic heavy metal to progressive rock and avant-garde art music, Zemial’s early beginnings were about black metal exclusively – and indeed, the 1992’s Sleeping Under Tartarus is the prime testimony of that.
With Sauron (Rotting Christ) on drums, Magus (Necromantia) on keyboards, and the mastermind Vorskaath being largely responsible for Varathron’s His Majesty At The Swamp released a year later, it is only fair to say that Sleeping Under Tartarus emerged from the very core of the aforementioned golden trinity.
Featuring the original 1992 intro, with the sound restored and remastered from the original tapes. May the ancient gods of the night reign again!
