This is STYGIAN OATH‘s debut mini CD on Stormspell Records and I can assure you that you should be prepared for a massive blast of Classic Heavy Metal by this amazing Greek band.

Influences from JUDAS PRIEST, ACCEPT, IRON MAIDEN, and SAVATAGE are mixed together on a very solid and storm-taking Heavy Metal result. I would even discover some doom (eg. CANDLEMASS) touches here and there and this is another (of course) positive feature on their sound.

Everything starts from the good riffing and it is obvious that in here you would be able to here some amazing riffs. The extra guitar melodies and leads by Haris Vavalidis would complete the guitar wall of sound (by the way check Haris work on his previous ATRIA MORTIS band, I gave their “The Samurai” demo a lot of spins when it was released back in 2006 and still is a favorite pick when it comes to Greek Heavy Metal), while Panos Tsartsalis on bass and Apostolos Tzotzis on drums build the ideal, solid rhythm section. Turn the volume a little louder and feel the hammering!

Classic Heavy Metal delivered by Metalheads for Metalheads. If this is the sound you are into, then support this great debut. No more excuses are needed.

I breathe for music. And I am more than sure that my mission in this universe is to make everybody agree that "Awaken The Guardian" by FATES WARNING is the best album ever released, yes in all musical genres. My next mission is to feed homeless cats and when I am not busy with all this stuff I listen to US Prog / Power and Epic Doom Metal. And I cast spells in rituals in order to awake the old ones. After my subscription to the "Happy Otters" team on Facebook.

Interview with HORIZON’S END

Speaking with HORIZON'S END mastermind - Sakis Bandis (keyboards) is a beautiful adventure, like each and every listen to each and every of their songs. There were really a lot of things to be discussed, as this is the very first interview that took place after the band's reunion. There is new music, there is this sudden (or not so sudden?) comeback, there is an album that was recorded but never released and a whole band that was put on ice many moons ago. Sakis spread some light to all those topics that waited for years to be clarified and to many new ones, as a new journey to the end of an infinite horizon has already started!
