Tonight we feel more than enthusiastic to officially premiere on Last Day Deaf a chillstep creation by Greek, self-taught artist TFM.
‘The Oread of Cithaeron‘ was inspired by one of the Greek myths of nymph Echo and Narcissus and is a 4+ minute, atmospheric aural bliss, with a highly cinematic value. Dreamers of this world, this one is an unmissable treat, so press the play below and prepare to get lost on the “dream wave”…
The Oread of Cithaeron is a chillstep song inspired by one of the Greek myths of nymph Echo and Narcissus hence the use of echo/chorus and chill vocals used. So what is to expect? Relaxing ambient sounds that can be heard throughout the whole song, with chill rhythm and piano melodies. Later on the vocals of the “nymph” come in to add to the atmosphere of the song and let you dive deeper into the myth while an electric guitar tries to mimic the voices with it’s melodies and give a closure to the song.

From Wikipedia: “In Greek mythology, Echo (/ˈɛkoʊ/; Greek: Ἠχώ, Ēkhō, “echo”, from ἦχος (ēchos), “sound”) was an Oread who resided on Mount Cithaeron. Zeus loved consorting with beautiful nymphs and often visited them on Earth. Eventually, Zeus’s wife, Hera, became suspicious, and came from Mount Olympus in an attempt to catch Zeus with the nymphs. Echo, by trying to protect Zeus (as he had ordered her to do), endured Hera’s wrath, and Hera made her only able to speak the last words spoken to her. So when Echo met Narcissus and fell in love with him, she was unable to tell him how she felt and was forced to watch him as he fell in love with himself.”
Tasos has been playing the guitar since 2011 (electric, classical & acoustic) and leaned his way around the guitar neck by playing songs from other musicians and training by ear.
He has now started writing, mixing and producing his own songs to share with others. Each of his songs is trying to tell a story.
