They are the brainchild of two guys (Matt & Giorgos) that grew up with ‘90s old-school deathmetal and Black Sabbath beliefs, but they could never really choose between the metal sound and the rock 'n' roll feeling.

[Review] Anal Veritas - Happy Estella

Anal Veritas Happy Estella, 2017
Besides 'Estella' we are also happy to see another release by Anal Veritas. It's a fact that this band actually functions and works in a very particular way, that is a slow one :-)
Although the beginning of "Anal Veritas" as a band dates back to 2002, lots of 'ransitions' took place until the band took its shape.

[Review] HALF Gramme of SOMA - Groove is Black

HALF Gramme of SOMA - Groove is Black
Every band that starts with a nice debut album doesn't have by necessity similarly nice follow up releases. HALF Gramme of SOMA is not one of those bands.

I've been following the steps of HGoS since the beginning and back in 2013 I really adored their debut album which made me think that "this is a band that is going to make us talk about them in the future" (here is a review of their debut album).
