Nar Mataron were formed in the middle of 1994 from Lord Alatoth as a side project.The purpose of the band was to spread the glory of the Ancient Hellenic history in the same time where only Nar Mataron and Kawir were existed.
The band with the help of Count Samas and Emperor Palmist entered the studio and recorded the legendary "Tales of the 12 Gods" which was released through Melancholy promotion.
The demo recieved good reviews so the band decided to release another demo this time with the help of Unblessesed II on guitars.the second demo was called "Awaikening of the ancient Greece".
Again the band recieved good reviews and this had as result for Nar Mataron to participate to the Bathory-tribute covering the song "Equimathorn".
After that two of the ex-members of Nar Mataron (Morpheas and Kaiadas) try to steal the band's reputation by stealing 3 of the band's songs without permission of Lord Alatoth by using them in their first cd and by only changing one letter so that all the people who knew Nar Mataron thought that Naer and Nar are the same thing.
In the beggining of 1999 Lord Alatoth with the help of Priest Necros recorded 2 new songs for promotional reasons and the band signed to In Vision Musik for the release of a split cd along with Vorphalack and for the next full release of Nar Mataron in the beggining of 2000.
The side of Nar Mataron in the split cd will contains 4 songs that had been inspired from the ancient Hellenic tradition and mythology.
NAR MATARON - "TALES OF THE 12 GODS"
This was the first release of the band and the reason of this demo was to praise our ancient ancestors. The demo featured 3 songs each one with a different feeling. The first one "Hymn to Zeus" is a traditional track that talks for Zeus. The second one "The chosen one" is talking about a chosen person that his fate is to bring catastrophy to this miserable christianic world. The third one "Enfold thy..." is a keyboard track that talks about curses. This demo was never mixed cause the band wanted to keep the aggresive feeling of the recordings
NAR MATARON - "AWAIKENING OF THE ANCIENT GREECE"
This demo feature s 4 tracks.Two of them are traditional songs and the other 2 are in the black metal vein. The first one is talking about the awaikening of Zeus and the other Gods and the preparation for bringing the belief again to the humanity.The second one "Zephyrous" is a song which talks about the story of Zephyrous.
BATHORY TRIBUTE - "HELLAS SALUTES THE VIKINGS"
This tribute was something that all the band members wanted to do since Bathory are legends in the black metal area. The song I decide to record was "Equimathorn" and the others members agreed. Also the tribute features Kawir and Zemial covering "Sadist" and "Armaggedon"
NAR MATARON - PROMO DEMO 1999
This was actually was meant to beeing released as a 7'' but In Vision Musik offered the band a split cd with Vorphalack and so these songs along with another 2 will be featured in the split-cd. This promo features 2 songs: "Mother Hecate" a song for Hecate and "Descend to Hades (Fall of Winter)" which tells the story of Persephone and her trip between earth and Hades.
