Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
We started in 2013, and our original members are the existing.
Pete Tross on guitars and vocals, Vagelis Kolios on Vocals, Anthony Kontozoglou on drums and Nick Pan on bass.
We recorded our debut ep “Mindless Mass” at 9800 studios Athens, Mixed it at one of the most notable studios in Greece, Unreal Studioz, and the mastering took place at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. A studio with great experience and clients such as Amon Amarth, Opeth, Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Kreator etc..
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
We have successfully combined some of the best metal scenes worldwide, and made what you are about to listen.
Many bands have influenced us, but the good part in all this, is that all the members have different “favorites” in metal. So, we have crafted a solid blend out of it, capable to excite anyone who listens to it.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because he/ she is going to listen to some pretty new stuff, able to blow their mind.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
This is our debut work published to the crowd. But we are very confident that people would love it!
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Alongside with the release of the album in 4 Oct. 2014 in Europe and worldwide, and 2. Dec at North and South America, we have planned some live shows in Greece, that will take place in the forthcoming months.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We have worked really hard to make something worth listening and, completely no offence to any other band, something you have not listened again and again. We are also trying every day to improve our status as a band, in order to someday reach as high as it goes.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
For now, we are about to spread our music through internet worldwide, and also with live shows all along Greece.
Afterwards, we have already started planning the recordings of our Full Length album. But first things first. When we are done with the promotion of Mindless mass and Leave the Circus in general, we can see how it went, and define our next moves.
