The return of the greatest ones!
The history of the Greek Black Metal veteran
Jim Mutilator was the first bassist and a founding member of the legendary 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 recognised 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.
2019 : The Return of Jim Mutilator – An impressive comeback in the black metal scene with Yoth Iria
Jim has returned and is once again impressively active. Contributing heavily to 2018 book Non Serviam: The Official Story Of Rotting Christ, he also guested on Protogoni Mavri Magiki Dynasteia, the 2019 opus by Brazilian masters Mystifer. The same year would see him officially join Greek black metal veterans Medieval Demon on bass, as well as finally announcing his own outfit, Yoth Iria, a project he had been quietly working on for some years.
