Oceans Of Slumber gave their first headline show outside of the US, with the Greek audience being the lucky one. So we couldn’t miss the opportunity to have a talk with them. Rockpages sat with Dobber Beverly (drums) and Cammie Gilbert (vocals), a few hours before they hit the stage, for an absolutely delightful conversation. The best parts are here for you to enjoy. You can also check out the video below! Interview: George Terzakis
During Scar Of The Sun’s European tour supporting Firewind we had the chance to talk with singer Terry Nikas and got all the latest about their album “In Flood”, their thoughts about the future and their upcoming show in Athens after a long time. Interview: Mariza “Crash”
The news that the ex-Gluecifer guitarist was going to be in Athens as a member of Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg was enough to make the waiting for this show unbearable. Rockpages.gr managed to do a video interview just a few hours before the show at the hotel’s roof garden with the Acropolis on the backdrop. Captain Poon is loosened up and feels at ease with his leather jacket on despite the post-summer heat (the interview was filmed in September) that the rain that had just stopped didn’t manage to cool off.
Dare is about to make its virgin trip to Greece for a much anticipated show in downtown Athens. So, we figured that his would be an ideal chance to track down the band’s mastermind, Darren Wharton for a quite enjoyable –as you will read below- interview. Dare’s new album, Thin Lizzy, Greek folk music and football were only a few of the subjects that we covered. Interview: Sakis Nikas
Firewind make a double return since they release their first album since 2012 and they go back to their familiar style, having made a temporary diversion with “Few Against Many”, with a new singer, German Henning Basse. Gus G talks to Rockpages.gr about choosing Basse, the return to the band’s sound, “Immortals” Greek concept, the first time Firewind work with an outsider and more. Finally, he promises that Firewind will play at their home country… can’t wait for that! Interview: Yiannis Dolas
