Reversing the Southern Phase of Metal

Draft info…
Since the early stages of the band (Oct 2007) a common question was born in fan's mind regarding the music style of the quartet that came from the South European territory (Athens, Greece)… Country Blues riffs with Hardcore elements and groovy rhythm section… Not quite Metal, Not quite Rock… Just “Southern European Pentatonic Heavy Metal” or simply “SEPHM”, Unique style? No, not at all. There are billions of songs floating around the universe of internet which is unlikely to create something unique. It’s just an 100% personalized result from 4 unique persons (yes, we believe in human uniqueness).
