Thou Art Lord  

Thou Art Lord was formed in the early nineties, with the leaders of two of Greece's better-known metal acts (Sakis of Rotting Christ and Magus of Necromantia) decided to put together a side project to explore extreme metal. Two albums were released in 1994 and 1995, but though both were well-received, the duo felt they could not continue working both in TAL and their respective main bands, and so the project was put on hold. Seven years later, the duo decided to start anew, and recruited another leader from another well-known Greek band (Seth, from Septicflesh), and the band's third album, DV8, was soon released. Though some traces of the aforementioned bands can be heard here (late-period Septic Flesh, on occasion), DV8 is a far more furious and intense affair, drawing from black and death metal influences to great effect. A worthwhile extreme metal album.
