PRASSEIN ALOGA - "Midas Touch"
HEART OF STEEL Records
Classic Heavy Metal
- AMAZING new album in the Classic Heavy Metal style!
The band was formed back in 1995 and made an immediate success
to the Greek audience with its hard sound and the use off Greek
language on the lyrics.
The first album ("Vasisou pano sou", meaning "count on
yourself") was relatively the lightest and made its way to
almost all the commercial radio charts in Greece. Despite their
label's inducements to continue like this, the band's sound grew
harder, much too hard for the
musical taste of Greek commercial radio djs. So from the third
album and on, the band collaborated with varrius independent
domestic labels, keeping an underground profile.
The biggest moments in the band's career were the collaboration
with Paul Di'anno (performing as his band for two Greek tours,
2008 and 2010), opening for Scorpions in Chania 2009 and
drummer's collaboration with Uli Jon Roth for a gig in
The highlight for the band is the new recording for 2011
featuring Paul Di'anno on two tracks.
Given this marvelous opportunity the band decides to make the
whole album in English for the first time, even though that
thought was in mind for a long time. The upcoming release is
entitled "Midas Touch"
