The majority of ORDER OF THE EBON HAND's debut album The Mystic Path to the Netherworld was recorded in April 1995, but the final three songs were recorded on this day in 1996. Mystic Path was released through George Zacharopoulos's Hypervorea Records which also released early albums by ZEMIAL, LEGION OF DOOM and AGATUS.
Art that is about art, is the ultimate of art. Especially when it comes to black metal, whose lyrics are based on the Left Hand Path, which is aiming for the man itself as a unit and not as a whole in any form of social category. The dragon doesn’t hide in circles, desperate for fame, but does what his inner self tells him to, not concerned on the others’ approval or disapproval.Orestis / Order of the Ebon Hand interview, Metal Invader, 2018
