Tonight at 9pm (French Time), July 18th, on Radio Papy Jeff, I invite you to listen to the excellent track "Down This Road" by the band EIEN, from their latest album "In this Game".
Bio : EIEN is a modern heavy metal band from Athens, Greece, which formed in 2008 and has released 3 albums and an EP so far.
2009 : ''Vacant Expressions'' is their very first album.
2011: They are establishing themselves on the Greek metal scene with
''Closure'', which has been very well received and has created an
anticipation of what the future might bring.
2013 : Their track
"The Sickening" from their EP (ArtRacks Studios, mixed/mastered by
Fredrik Nordstrom - Fredman Studios) was adopted by the local press, and
received good reviews. It got a place at the suggestion of the Greek
Metal Hammer's suggestion of the month, which described it as "Sing
Along Heavy Metal Anthems".
2019 : After a long break, EIEN, with
an exceptional team of associates and friends, started recording new
songs for their latest album, "In This Game".
The album is
strongly influenced by George Orwell's founding book, 1984, which,
although published in the distant 1949, is more relevant today than
ever. It is the story of a dystopian future where an entire nation is
under the constant surveillance of a totalitarian regime. Freedom of
expression and even of thought is being challenged and almost totally
eradicated. "Whoever controls the past controls the future. Whoever
controls the present controls the past."
Melodic vocal lines
mingle with aggressive vocals that spit out lyrics of unprecedented
sharpness and denunciation, while a groovy rhythm section, complex riffs
and dynamic percussion complete the rather layered soundscape that is
The recording took place at U217 & Encore
Studios and the album was produced by VlassisKetsilis and mastered by
Steve Lado. It also features guests such as ChrysaTsaltampasi (vocals,
Spineless) and Nikos Panagiotopoulos (bass guitar), while the demo was
created by Manthos Stergiou (Manster Design).
