SL Theory – Cipher (Rock Of Angels Records)

SL Theory is the brainchild of Greek multi-instrumentalist Sotiris Lagonikas, Co-founder of the bands What’s The Buzz? And Double Treat and a former member of six piece ‘Four Wheel Drive’. Based out of Piraeus, Lagonikas is a long time veteran… Continue Reading →

Acid Mammoth – Under Acid Hoof (Heavy Psych)

I’m forever trying to expand my music tastes. Sometimes successfully, sometimes not. I might go on a week long binge of Avant-Garde Opera only to find one that really sticks (Check out Le Grand Macabre by György Ligeti). Alas sometimes… Continue Reading →

Kawir – Adrasteia (Iron Bonehead)

With roots back to 1993 Greek veterans Kawir have had a studious history that is as historical as the themes and traditions they musically embrace. Leading them through thick and thin Therthonax has had almost 30 players both on album… Continue Reading →

Haxandraok – KI SI KIL UD DA KAR RA (Van)

Sometimes I watch bands live or hear a song or record and just think ‘what is the point in this?’ Truthfully, I find a disdain for anything that isn’t trying to at least tread some new ground, even if that… Continue Reading →

Nightstalker – Great Hallucinations (Heavy Psych Records)

Despite being a band since 1989, I must confess that this is my first time with veteran Greek outfit Nightstalker. On the basis that I liked the name of the album, and the cover art was pretty cool, I thought… Continue Reading →

Planet of Zeus – Faith In Physics (Heavy Psyche Sounds)

Ladies and gents, it’s time for me to be utterly honest and admit my bias; as well as being more than a little impressed by the growing line up of talent being put out through Heavy Psyche Sounds, I bloody… Continue Reading →

MMMD – Egoismo (Antifrost)

MMMΔ, aka MMMD aka Mohammad, now we have that out the way we can begin. Are you sitting comfortably? Well you won’t be for long and going to the toilet and ridding thyself of any excess waste is advisable before… Continue Reading →

Synteleia – Ending Of The Unknown Path (Hells Headbangers)

With differing components of Hellenic Black metal currently being represented by the likes of uber gods Rotting Christ and Septic Flesh, the prospect of securing a copy of a release from the relatively new inception from fellow countrymen Synteleia was… Continue Reading →

Domination Inc – Memoir 414 (SPV)

Domination Inc from Athens are a thrash band with a fairy story. Don’t worry I do not mean that they are Megadeth with unicorns and Lars Ulrich as the wicked stepmother (though I would pay to see that). Rather, the… Continue Reading →

Funeral Storm – Arcane Mysteries (Hells Headbangers)

I guess the Greek black metal scene will always hold a special place in my catalogued heart simply because bands like Necromantia and Varathron were some of the first I came across in my faltering first steps into black metal… Continue Reading →

Akrotheism – The Law of Seven Deaths (Osmose)

What a difference five years can make. Akrotheism sprang into action in 2014 with a delicious platter that set out to tear your soul to shreds while casually leaving you skipping and whistling down the road at the same time… Continue Reading →

Nightrage – Wolf To Man (Despotz)

Musical trends come and go, listening tastes develop over time and whilst someone may have not been able to get enough of the melodic death metal, Swedish shred of bands such as Arch Enemy and At The Gates in the… Continue Reading →
