Low Gravity Band
By translating their need for living and living in this living condition that is shaped by a fairly tedious everyday life, the Low Gravity Band contrasts a musical multicolored kaleidoscope designed to heal and redefine the soul of the listener, an optimistic and which powerful anti-party entity that acts against all the manifestations of the imbalance that surrounds us. Blues are the vehicle, Rock are the rails, Psychedelia describes the landscape, Funk gives the rhythm, Jazz redefines the route, and Stoner rock sets the foundation for us to land on a stable ground. Each time the “journey” reshapes the way that everyday life imposes. The Low Gravity Band is a huge Jamm that ultimately is life itself.
The band consisting of Manolis Angelakis (slide guitar/vocals), Stathis Ioannou (guitar/vocals), Costas Katalimatias (bass guitar), Antony Livieratos (keyboards/vocals) and Marios Sarakinos (drums), was formed to perform for just a single gig at the Athens Blues Festival in the summer of 2000. Called hobART phASE Blue Project for that particular appereance, the name did not last long. Their debut received a warm reception, forcing them to get serious about it all by first trying to find a new name for themselves! After of several hours and several ridiculous names-for example Los Clanovalvidos Musicales- they still hadn..t come up with a name. A second after Paul Ioannou had come up with ….Illegal Operation.., he fainted.. a perfect name. Once ready, a batch of songs was recorded at Action Studios a weekend of October 2000. Produced by Chris Chatzistamou, the Illegal Operation logo designed by Yanna and Solis and CD cover created by Yannis Nikolaou, Hitch Hyke took the chance and released ..Blue Project.. in June of 2001, preceded by a CD single called ..Space Boogie.. and an EP ..Careless Love.. all on Hitch Hyke records. From September 2000 to October 2001 lineup includes Yiannis Marinos on the trombone. In 2002 the mini L.P. ..The Bust.. is released by Hitch Hyke records. The position of bassist from September 2001-2003 is often occupied by Costa Kotzambopoulos as, for professional reasons Costas Katalimatias needs to travel overseas. In the spring of 2003 Antony Livieratos leaves the band, while at the same time DJ Lostromos begins Djing for the group before and after their live sets. Soon DJ Lostromos becomes the group..s P.R. manager.Since November 2009 Giorgos Tsalkidis aka DJ Lostromos joined the band as a regular member playing guitar, percussions, backing vocals etc. Another regular Panagiotis Kakalias is not only the band..s sound engineer but a valuable collaborator as well. Illegal Operation insist that they are first and foremost a live band and that they are at their best onstage. That is one of the reasons they have built an ever increasing fan club which is run by Danny Aliprantis. So if you are in the vicinity when they perform..DROP BY….
Mother Of Millions
Mother of Millions is a prog-rock quintet based in Athens, Greece.
The band released its first album “Human” in 2014.
In November 2017, they released their second album “Sigma”, via Swedish ViciSolum Records, getting the most positive reviews from the audience and the global music press.
As part of Sigma’s release, the band performed a sold-out headline show in Athens, shows with Textures on their last European tour, support shows with Ruud Jolie’s For All We Know in the Netherlands, while the band has shared the stage with artists such as Pain of Salvation, Devin Townsend, Leprous, Oceans of Slumber, SepticFlesh etc.
Mother of Millions’ third album “Artifacts” tells a story about ideas and sentiments as objects with a ritual value. Artifacts will be released in March 2019.
Mother of Millions sounds equally massive as cinematic. Intense soundscapes involving elaborate rhythms, folk aesthetics and progressive rock tunes.
