iola11 (post chaotic rock trio from Athens, Greece)
« on: May 20, 2013, 10:48:51 PM »
you can guess who the drummer is!!

anyway since first gig is taking place on 30th of may in athens, if you happen to be around, come over if you feel like it, we'll grab some beers and talk about 2box as well ;)

links to iola11 facebook etc are in my signature, hopefully we will release our first record sooner than later!

Biography
1990: 3 highschool kids sharing common taste for heavy music, started hanging out.
2011: baldier, wiser (?????) and uglier, these dudes formed iola11, a band that would allow them to express their abnormal musical tastes and ideas.
The Athens based, rock trio consists of:
Edeka: Vocals, fx
Kuvic: bass guitar - bass guitared
Porotikos: Drums, percussion (and everything else he could hit with his sticks)

their diverse musical influences can be traced in (among others):

iron maiden
therapy
mike patton
afghan whigs
fun lovin' criminals
scary mother
bathory
yannis savidakis
fear factory
madonna
daft punk
candlemass
rage
ramones
manowar
running wild

While putting tags in music can be a futile task, "post-chaotic rock" could approximate their sound closely enough.

Hey John, wish I could be there. Are you gigging with the 2bx kit or an acoustic kit?

Cheers

Work on your stamina and run a test on an analogue kit before the gig. It is different.

Ha, ya, I realised that in January, when giging on an accoustic kit after practising for 3 months on 2box only... blisters all over... and after the first song I thought my hand would fall apart.
ever since  I try to make me practise with big sticks on my practicepad once in a while.

burnin': great band, I like the "no-guitar"-approach...  :animal:

thank you for the kind words my friend. but to be completely honest, the sings that we have uploaded are crap. actually not the songs, but the versions of them. recorded in a rehearsal too much time ago, and one of them is way too fast.(we play it much slower now and it is sooo much better). we should have uploaded new versions of these songs along with new ones, but the most probable thing we will do, is record everything from scratch in a month or so. we are so much better now, that we know the songs will come out excellent, so we might do that from scratch!! anyway... thanx again!!!


ps. we do also love the new guitar approach!! take care
