Yoth Iria released new lyric video for the song “Yoth Iria” from the upcoming album “As the flame withers”. out on January 25th by Pagan Records.
Yoth Iria is Jim Mutilator’s and The Magus’s musical project.
Jim Mutilator was the first bassist and a founding member of the Greek black metal band Rotting Christ. In 1985, at the age of 14, he started a band called Black Church with the Tolis brothers. Two years later the trio went on to form Rotting Christ. He was also the first bassist in Varathron. He appears on both Rotting Christ’s Thy Mighty Contract and Varathron’s His Majesty at the Swamp, two of Hellenic black metal’s most recognized and defining albums. He also participated in the most important black metal tour back in the day, which included Blasphemy, Immortal and Rotting Christ. He left Varathron in 1993, shortly after their full-length debut. He did two more albums with Rotting Christ, Non Serviam and Triarchy of the Lost Lovers before leaving in 1996. However, he contributed lyrics to Rotting Christ all the way up until the Sleep of the Angels album.
The Magus is a Greek musician (bass, keys & vocals) and producer, well known for his work in the Greek black and death metal scenes. He formed NECROMANTIA in 1989 together with Baron Blood (RIP), one of the most influential and avantgarde bands of the scene. A formidable composer and a sinister lyricisy. His musical projects and colaborations involved: ROTTING CHRIST, THOU ART LORD, NAOS, DIABOLOS RISING, RAISM, PRINCIPALITY OF HELL etc. He is credited for shaping the ”Hellenic sound” of black & death metal.
YOTH IRIA’s music is an amalgam of the influences and visions of it’s creators. Dark, diabolical, emotional, powerful and majestic. A fresh look into the ’90s Greek occult black metal with a nostalgia of the past and a look into the future.
