NAER MATARON BIOGRAPHY:
Naer Mataron were gathered back in the year 1994 with the aim to play Hellenic black metal. Their lyrics are dealing with the ancient Hellenic pantheon, with virtues such as pride and honor drawn from periods and heroes of European history.
After the release of the promo tape “The Great God Pan”, they released their debut album “Up from the Ashes” on Black Lotus Recs.This ...successful release is followed by the “Skotos Aenaon”, “River at Dash Scalding” and “Discipline Manifesto” albums, each one driving Naer Mataron one step further into the exploration of true black metal.
Throughout their 17 year history, they have shared the stage with significant bands, such as Mayhem, Rotting Christ, Dissection, Gorgoroth, Arcturus, Dodheimsgard, participated in big festivals and headlined several successful shows. In this period most of their albums have been re-released on several editions, along with some cult 7” ep releases.
In the Spring of 2007, Naer Mataron traveled to Oslo, Norway and entered the studio to record "Praetorians"... The spawn of Naer Mataron's unholy alliance with the notorious mr. Vicotnik from DHG (Vocals & production), is something more than the 5th album of one of the most respected Hellenic hordes: it is actually their most extreme, fast and uncompromising work to date! Release date set for May 2008.
The year 2009 comes along with a new ambitious drummer for the band. The demons call him Asmodeus Draco Dux, and with him dominating the drum kit, they joined Jarboe on the "Mother of Changes" European Tour. Shortly after, they flied to South America for their first headline tour "Apocalypse of the Ancient One".
The newfound chemistry created by Indra and Asmodeus Draco Dux urges the band into a more brutal direction, so Kaiadas seizes the opportunity to lead the band into the paths of death. NAER MATARON, having found new comradeship in the ranks of Witching Hour Prod, glorify death and unveil him as something that peaks with birth and ceases in death. ΖΗΤΩ Ο ΘΑΝΑΤΟΣ (LONG LIVE DEATH) , The apocalypse begins in 2012...
