Cause Of Honour










Cause Of Honour were one of the first active Nationalist skinhead bands in Hellas with recorded material. The band was coming from Kalithea and they started in December of 1990. Their first line up was: Dimitris-vocals, Stefanos-bass, Kostas-guitar (the founder of band's name, later play the bass), Tasos-drums but they have many line-up changes before they split up in 1997-'98. They recorded some tracks with drummer and some with drum-machine. They had released two demos (the first in 1991 and second around 1995) without any cover or officially, just hand-to-hand tapes. A cover song also of Beatles 'Get Back' with lyrics against immigrants! The songs 'Working Class Awake' and 'Ticket To Hell' were included also in the Nordisc Record compilation, 'We Will Never Die' Vol.2 in 1998 with permission of one member of the band but the band had already split up. They played some gigs with most famous this one in 1993 in a club in Athens, with casual and skinhead comrades attending. The first version of 'North Epirus' song taken from the first ever nationalist band in my country, The Last Patriots (play for short time in 1987) and Markos played with them before join around 1993 C.O.H. In 2012 Markos on guitar, his 10 years son on bass and with vocalist of No Surrender re-recorded old songs and released them. The band continues with 2 new songs on B&H Hellas Vol.2 and today still wrote more material with Markos, his two sons on bass and drums and new vocalist.
