The Meads Of Asphodel, from Britain, contaminated midtempo black metal with a Hawkwind-influenced sound of pop hooks and psychedelic keyboards matched with esoteric apocryphal lyrics on The Excommunication of Christ (2001), featuring Hawkwind's guitarist Huw Lloyd Langton.

Having replaced multi-instrumentalist Jaldaboath (James Fogarty) with James Tait, they indulged in electronic effects and programmed beats on Exhuming The Grave Of Yeshua (Supernal, 2003).

The Mill Hill Sessions (Godreah, 2004) contains rarities including the suite My Beautiful Genocide.

The Middle-Eastern-inspired Damascus Steel (Supernal Music, 2005) included two lengthy suites.

The EP In The Name Of God Welcome To Planet Genocide (Firestorm, 2006) further diluted the black-metal element into a molasse of garage-rock, prog-rock and musique concrete, peaking with the electronic suite Aborted Stygian Foetus.

The Early Years (Godreah, 2009) compiles demos from 1998-2002.

The Murder Of Jesus The Jew (Candlelight, 2011) is an eclectic concept album that includes electronics and orchestral instruments, perhaps the peak of their madcap bombast.

The Wolves Of Avalon, Metatron's side-project, debuted with the pagan Celtic concept Carrion Crows Over Camlan (Godreah, 2012).
