Power/Doom Metal

Greece (Athens), 1998

Dimitris Koutsouvelis (vocals)
Lefteris “L.V.” Vourliotis (lead guitar)
Michail Vlavianos (rhythm guitar)
Yiannis “Blackclad” Moraitis (bass)
George Tsinanis (drums)

HEATHENDOM was founded by Lefteris Vourliotis (lead guitar) and Michail Vlavianos (rhythm guitar) back in 1998. The concept of the band was power/doom metal with a strong mixture of KING DIAMOND/MERCYFUL FATE style. In September 1998 Giannis Fillipaios (drums, member of DECEMBERANCE) and Yiannis Moraitis (bass, member of SAVANON and ex-member of CHOIR MACABRE and DECEMBERANCE) joined the band. Songs composing and rehearsals followed for a year, until the band decided to split because no appropriate singer could be found at the time.

In September 2000 Vourliotis met with Dimitris Koutsouvelis (vocals, ex-member of FADED MEMORY) and they started working on some material, but various obligations prevented the group from reforming, till September 2004. Moraitis was called once again to fill in the bass position and drums post was taken on by Dimitris Sakkas.

In June 2005 the band released their first demo, “Heathendom”, containing 5 songs plus an intro of seer power/doom music (over 33 minutes), that was accepted with great enthusiasm in the underground scene. After some line-up changes HEATHENDOM played their first show in 2006, supporting SOLITUDE AETURNUS in Athens and in April 2008 at Up The Hammers festival, together with bands such as MANILLA ROAD, OMEN, MEMORY GARDEN and CAGE.

    Just discovered these guys. Thank hell there's an actual Power Metal band still writing good and dark material. Seriously right up there with the best of Iced Earth, Nevermore and Evergrey (plus the King Diamond influence helps).

    it's obviously power/doom and not doom metal.. as for the tag, Mastodon have a metalcore one, so...

    Having seen them open for Amon Amarth live, I can't help but wonder - where the fuck did that doom metal tag come from?

    Really impressive album, especially for a debut. I'd recommend it to any fans of King Diamond, Candlemass and bands related to both of those.
