THE MAGUS release ARTHUR BROWN cover with members of the Greek black metal scene!

The Greek veterans of THE MAGUS are proudly presenting their hellish cover of ARTHUR BROWN’s classic song ‘Fire’. The track comes in the form of an unique music video including prominent members of the Greek black metal scene such as ROTTING CHRIST, VARATHRON, LUCIFER’S CHILD and many more!

Check out the track and video here:

THE MAGUS comments on the track and collaboration with the scene:

I always wanted to pay tribute to the remarkable Arthur Brown. This man, his music and theatrics shaped the aesthetics and visuals of the darker side of metal as we know it today.

So here it is: ‘Fire’. A cover of a 1968 song, performed by us in 2024, in our own extraordinary way. The video of the song is also another vision I had in my mind for years. I wanted to gather musicians and artists who I have worked with, one way or another, all these years. Friends, brothers and sisters, blasphemers and heretics. Individuals who have served and hammered (and continue to do so) relentlessly our most cherished music genre: black metal. Older and younger, originators and continuators. A big part of the Hellenic Black Metal scene. Our scene, our community, which is still going strong…

The video itself presents the way we bond and communicate in the physical level and the metaphysical level. So members (you know who they are!) of ROTTING CHRIST, VARATHRON, LUCIFER’S CHILD, KAWIR, W.E.B., ORDER OF THE  EBON HAND, YOTH IRIA, PENTHOS, FUNERAL STORM, EUPHROSYNE, have enjoyed our feast and joined our ritual.

It is your turn now Disciples, to enjoy and join!

Like Serpents from the Depths we rise

Hailing back to 1989, Greek black metal outfit Necromantia was founded by the two musicians Baron Blood (bass) and The Magus (vocals, guitars, keyboards). The band’s music was characterized by a mix of black metal and death metal, with elements of Greek folk music and classical music. Over the years, Necromantia had undergone several line-up changes, but the band continued to release albums and tour, becoming one of the most respected and influential black metal bands from Greece!

Following the tragic death of Baron Blood in 2019, The Magus decided to disband Necromantia by releasing their final album “To the Depths We Descend” in 2021. But The Magus’ personal musical and mystical journey did not stop here. The inner black flame, which urges The Magus to create dark and extreme art which is expressed through music and lyrics, never ceased to burn.

In the summer of 2022, The Magus decided to give birth to a new musical project, entitled simply and appropriately; THEMAGUS. Joined by long-time associates, El (Soulskinner, Zaratus, Thou Art Lord, Principality of Hell etc) on guitars and Maelstrom (Necromantia, Yoth Iria, Thou Art Lord, Principality of Hell) on drums in order to complete the formula and start working on material for the upcoming album “Βυσσοδομώντας” (pronounced as: “Vissodomontas”),  which will be released on October 31st, 2023!

“Βυσσοδομώντας” is an album that is meticulous down to its last detail. Every note, every riff & chorus, is not by chance where it was placed. Except El (Guitars) & Maelstorm (Drums) who make up THE MAGUS, a host of well-known musicians participated adding their personal touch (King Dude, IDVex (1/2 SOUTHERN NORTH), Hel Pyre (W.E.B.), Iraklis Gialatzides (SWAN CHRISTY), Manos Six (Manos Six and the Muddy Devil) & Christos Antoniou (SEPTICFLESH) who did the arrangements for the live choir. At the same time, five graphic designers tackled the artwork of all formats and captured in an exemplary way on paper the nightmarish thoughts of The Magus. Finally, a special mention is needed for the amazing production, mixing & mastering, done at Pentagram Studio by George Emmanuel.
