April, Monday and a new week, which means we'll introduce this week's "Record Of The Week", this time we go in a Greek theme.
From Athens, Greece we find the stoner rockers NIGHTSTALKER. A band that have earned a reputation due to their pure Rock ‘n Roll attitude and their constant live activity, and been lauded with the highest praise and respect since their beginning in early 90’s.
The whole concept was realized by the singer (and drummer at that time), Argy, who was the founding member of the band. Together with Andreas (ex ROTTING CHRIST member), who joined in 1992, managed to combine their heavy rock influences with funky rhythms and grunge melodies. With all these elements they released the first EP called ‘SideFx’ in 1994. With the second, but first full length album ‘USE’ (1996), the band established their rich songwriting, the heavy sound that has been their trademark to this day. After a ‘dark era’ with member changes but also an EP release (The Ritual,2000), which was the deepest, darkest psychedelic album they have ever made, the band managed to gain recognition and a new strong fan-base with the release of the ‘Just A Burn’ album. In 2009 the band released the ‘Superfreak’ album through the US ‘historic’ label ‘Meteorcity’. The latest release ‘Dead Rock Commandos’ (2012) came out through ‘Small Stone Records’ and established the band’s name in bigger audience.
Record Of The Week is "Dead Rock Commandos", a full package of heavy and rough rock 'n roll, catchy melodies filled with gritty riffs and stunning electric haze from Tolis Motsios guitar, groovy rhythms, swinging drums of Dinos Roulos and intense bass playing of Andreas Lagios, all merging with the vigorous of Argy’s vocals. This is in album that you should get or at least turn in at Spotify.
Todays tune "Children Of The Sun" is taken from the album "Dead Rock Commandos".
