Suffering from 'Look at me I've read a book' syndrome I've recently become interested in Byzantium, and was wondering if there's any metal on it. i already know about Bolt Thrower's 'The IVth Crusade', Turisas' 'The Varangian Way' and Amon Amarth's 'Varyags Of Miklagaard'.

Is there any more?

The band Sarpanitum, technical brutal death, writes about ancient civilizations. I'm not sure exactly which ones, as I haven't listened to them all that much, but I'm sure you can find some songs about Byzantium.

Its not metal, more bombastic neo-classical/Martial music, but I really recomend "the winter of constantinople" by H.E.R.R (heil europa! Romanisch Reich!). Brilliant piece of music centered around the fall of Constantinople as a metaphor for the decline of the west. Somewhat crypto-fascist but still brilliant.

I don't know if they mention Byzantium specifically but they're a very good band.

Sarpanitum is pretty much a ten-times-better Nile.

Bal-Sagoth did the song "To Storm the Cyclopean Gates of Byzantium", although it is an instrumental.
