I'm not too familiar with a lot of traditional metal that has come out of Greece. However, old Flames and old Rotting Christ are two of my favs.

Fortress Under Siege and Guardian Angel were very talented prog-power bands.
Too bad they're not still active.

Rotting Christ is one of my favourite black-metal bands.

New update on The New Greek Metal Sensation : TERRA INCOGNITA.

The long awaited debut CD, called "Barren Land" is out now !


http://www.terra-inc.gr/images/cover.jpg

The title song alone (Barren Land) is worth the buy.
Best song I heard in the last decade...
Beware : the riff in this song will haunt your brains for ages...

You can get your copy at their official (and totally renewed) website. (only 12 euro)

http://www.terra-inc.gr/index.php/en/merchandise

And why not do yourself a favour and get a genuine Terra T-shirt as well ! (vking1)

Euh... Hope it is not too obvious I am a HUGE fan of this band. Hahahaha...


Anyway : Hope you will get "Terr- a- dicted", just as I am...

Some great suggestions so far, but you've all failed to mention the mighty LITANY (unless you did and I missed it). Greece probably has my favorite scene at the moment.

one of the best bands coming out of Greece, that is a really good hidden gem it seems, as nobody seems to mention them are Horrified.
These guys have 3 albums, and you could say that because of the vocals they play Death Metal; but they don't! They play so much more than Death Metal. They have a lot of Black Metal elements, (especially in their first album "In the garden of unearthly delights"), a lot of classic heavy riffing, doom and a lot of other stuff that make this band too difficult to just label them as this or that metal. They are really unique.

Give them a listen and judge for yourselves:






Also another very good Death Metal band (at least their first CD was absolutely great, then they introduced female vocals and lost on brutality, but gained in art) is Kinetic:
