So I am aware of some of the more popular bands from back in the early days of the Greek scene:

Rotting Christ
Varathron
Nergal
Necromantia
Thou Art Lord

I would also consider early Septic Flesh to fit into the regional style, even if more of a death metal band.

And also some newer bands paying tribute to that old sound who are also from Greece:

Ithaqua
Katavasia


But what I am looking for is this: mostly full length albums that embody this sound, either from the original time or a recent revivalist approach is fine. I'm not as interested in obscure short demos and things (unless they are compilations), and I'm definitely not interested in bands being listed simply because they are Greek, but really have nothing to do with this regional sound, i.e. Ravencult, Suicidal Angels, or things like that. I like bands like this, but they don't fit into the uniquely Greek sound.

Thanks for your help guys, I just can't get enough of this sound and I'm sure there are gems I have missed along the way.

Older bands you'd probably like :

Deviser
Tatir
Mortify

Let me also recommend the magnificent Hellas 2CD comp on Kyrck. It's A Greek BM goldmine.

Oops, you mentioned Nergal.

YES! This is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for. Things like this make the internet great. Such a good resource for music discovery.

Granted this is from Cuba (shockingly), but it amazingly embodies what you are looking for.

Sectarium Demo 1993:

and

APOLION'S GENOCIDE (which is being re-issued now by black vomit)

Enjoy!

Great recommendations.

You need to listen at the same magical,mystical style,Order of the Ebon Hand ''The Mystic Path to the Netherworld''.It's their debut (and their best).

Merkaal (bass,vocals) is playing also in Mournblade.
Their debut (s/t) is one of my favorite Hellenic bm albums.

Add Nocternity (until ''A Fallen Unicorn'') and the mighty Zemial/Agatus (almost everything..).

Caedes Cruenta's full length was fantastic as well.Pure RC worship.

Same goes for Hierophant's Descent.Not like RC ,but still dark and special.

Macabre Omen is now with their last milestone, one of the best bands of this planet.

Last but not least Kawir 's old albums.Debut is a classic.

I think the Hierophant's Descent is the only modern band i know of that has pulled off a great Rotting Christ sound (from what I've heard, the demo really). its totally 100% Rotting Christ worship ala Ades Winds demo and Passage to Arc

You can also try (old) Kawir and Disharmony.

Will second Disharmony. Though only a demo, Osculum Infame's "Flame of Hate" is awesome. And I cannot recommend the recent demo by Finland's Ceremonial Torture enough. Absolutely floored me when I heard it.

Haha, yes, that Ceremonial Torture demo is great.

For more great Greek stuff, check out the Hellas compilation!

Just when I think I've heard all the bands in this style, someone posts unfamiliar stuff (Cuban project, Ceremonial Torture, etc.). Thanks dudes, got some listening to do tonight.
