Welcome to the "Dawn Of Battle"


Greetings to everyone,

"In a society that I hate deeply and scars my soul daily, the foundations and rules of which I deny, being likeable would mean that I am starting to look like it..."

This is the quote that I live by the last few years but come to think of it, I could as well be living by that particular quote all my life, without even knowing it.

The purpose of this blog is to gather all my thoughts in one place, nothing fancy, just a piece of me. The articles that I write are a blend of my experiences and thoughts.

I hope some of you enjoy what you read here and Ι welcome you all to walk down that road together.

High Voltage Festival 2012 Day I Live @ Kyttaro, Athens, Greece, 23-11-2012




High Voltage Festival 2012 Day I Live @ Kyttaro, Athens, Greece, 23-11-2012



Another busy week was coming to an end and this time, with a High Voltage blast! I’m talking about the High Voltage festival of course. 11 bands in 2 days with 10 euros per day! Every one who claims to support the Greek metal scene should have been there. Sadly, not may people thought likewise…

I arrived at the gig nearly half an hour before the doors open only to discover that I was the first fan to show up. Talk about starting on the wrong foot. There was another gig in town of course by WASP, which is always a soldout gig, but I expected a few more people to show up for this one. The doors opened and the first band called Strangeyes was on stage. The first thing I noticed was that the sound had some problems which is weird, because the sound in Kyttaro rarely has any problems whatsoever. The band was overally good, especially their frontman. They played some of their own stuff alond some covers (Opeth and Annihilator of I remember correctly).

The second band was Never-Trust. I can’t say that metalcore is really my style but the band had tons of energy. Of course some problems started to emerge once again. The pedal of the drummer started to fall apart so they had to play their songs in a less blasty manner. They delivered their groove very good though. The next band called Ivory Tower was probably the first band to play without any serious problems. They were also very good and thankfully, some more people started gathering up.
The next band was Sorrowful Angels, a well known band to the Greek scene. They definitely showed that they ‘owned’ the stage from the first moment, despite that they had a new member, guitar player Stelios. Their style is mostly goth metal, with a lot of melancholic melodies blended inside. I could say that they’re our very own “Paradise Lost”.

The next two bands were a surprise (good for some, bad for some others). The first band was Trendy Hooliguns, a band well known for their sarcasm on stage, both lyrically as well as when interacting with the crowd. They were very good but unfortunately, not many people stayed around to see them. It’s one of the bad things that always happens when Greek bands play, many friends and family of each band comes around to see one band, without caring for others. The last band was The Fallen Within, a band which uses a ton of elements. I could describe their style as modern metalcore, but it has a lot of electronic and prog stuff also. They’re definitely not my style but they were very good on stage and it seems that they’ve been working on their songs, as well as their on stage performance a lot.
