For some strange reason the music of InnerWish totally past me by, the band have been active for about 20 years and after a really long break the band released the album INNERWISH. The previous album came 6 years ago and I was interested in knowing more about what the band had been up to in between releases, so I got in touch with drummer Fragiskos Samoilis to know more about the status of the band. Members have come and gone, especially singers, and the new album is, like the previous one, mixed in Sweden by the legendary producer Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd. We talked about what the future has in store for the band and if you’re interested in learning more about traditional melodic metal sprinkled with great vocals make sure to read and listen to InnerWish.

The Greek heavy metal act Diviner released their debut album FALLEN EMPIRES last year and since I thought the album was great I hooked up with one of the band’s leaders, singer Yiannis Papanikolaou, to learn a bit more about them. The band is jammed with experienced and skilled musicians like guitarist Thimios Krikos (Innerwish) and drummer Fragiskos Samoilis (Innerwish). Innerwish is one of the biggest metal acts from Greece and Yiannis was also a member of that band before joining Diviner. Besides Diviner this busy man also leads and fronts the Dio cover act Rock N Roll Children, whom we discussed during our interview. To learn more about Greek heavy metal lean back and enjoy…

Sunburst is a brand new band from Greece that released their debut album FRAGMENTS OF CREATION in February this year. I had the pleasure to talk to aspiring guitar hero Gus Drax about the debut and about when and why the band was formed. Sunburst singer Vasilis Georgiou is also involved with Drax in the band Black Fate, so if you’re into well produced and executed progressive metal make sure to check out the music of Sunburst.

The Greek thrash metal act Descending has a new album out, it’s their second one called NEW DEATH CELEBRITY and sounds great. The album was released at the end of last year and I thought it was about time for the band to be featured in metal-rules.com. The guitarist Theo and I talked about the new album that was recorded in Sweden by the famous producer Fredrik Nordstrom. Of course we talked about a lot of other things which you can read about below. If you like thrash metal, be sure to check out Descending.
