Melancholy Promotion started back to 1992 as a small distribution service with
demos and Eps. A little after we decided to release some series of tapes, starting
with the NERGAL "Ijus Morker" promo tape in 1994.
Nergal a little later signed to Unisound for their full album.
Our second release was WINTERGODS "Seven Xul Curses" demo, keyboard music that
gained very good reviews. Wintergods is about to release a split CD now.
Next, two promising bands joined Melancholy Promotion for their promos:
DEMOGORGON "Lycaon Pictus"
A one man band, member of Legion of Doom, evil cold black metal, and
NAR MATARON "Tales Of The Twelve Gods".
Nar Mataron released a CD in Black Lotus some time later (with different
line-up and changed their name to Naer because of members fight!) and
Demogorgon signed for an 7'' on Melancholy Promotion.
VORPHALACK "Black Sorrow For A Dead Brother" demo '95 was our last tape release.
Tapes are no more for sale anyone interested can send a blank tape + $2

After that we got in contact with Zephyrous for a split LP with Vorphalack who had
already recorded new stuff. Both liked the idea and
ZEPHYROUS/VORPHALACK splitLP saw the light.
This release gained the best reactions and promoted both bands helping them to sing
in biggest labels. Zephyrous has already recorded their full and its already out,
although its something diferent from black metal and this split LP but really weird.
A cult vinyl release pressed to 300 numbered copies, it is sold out now.
Vinyl releases continued with our newest stuff:
VORPHALACK "In Memory" mLP.
A total holocaust masterpeice!!!!
The Vorphalack songs are a mixture of Acheron and Impaled Nazarene.
Vorphalack maybe the only band among the other wellknown bands from
Greece which continues with power and giving a total diferent face
in the Greek scene, they are out from 1992.
They just finaly signed for their full Lp on another Greek label.
Both mLPs are limited to 500 numbered copies with perfect lay out.
The price is 11$.
