Music On Your Own Terms 120 - Kostas Sampanis - Atumune In The Mountains

This episode I am joined by Greek guitarist, Kostas Sampanis, to talk about his newly released EP, Autumne. We discuss the conception of the album, which Kostas reveals is dedicated to his late grandmother, something that I really connect to on a deep emotional level, as my grandmother was very special to me as well. In addition to his EP, we also talk about Kostas' philosophies on teaching music theory and technique which is his primary source of income. Finally Kostas shares his recent experience with cancer and how music helped his time in hospital to endure the pain he was in. Once again I want to thank my friend Ria from One Woman Company for turning me on to another fantastic artist, I was absolutely blown away by Kostas' music and playing as soon as I heard it. Make sure you subscribe to Kostas' Youtube channel to check out some really tasty jams and covers.

Music On Your Own Terms 047 - George Bletsas/Hypnotic Nausea

Hypnotic Nausea is a hard rock band from Athens, Greece, that has prog and art-rock leanings, heavily inspired by both Tool and grandiose concept albums from the 70s. In this chat I talk to singer and guitarist George Bletsas about the band's beginnings, their influences and sound, along with how they decide on what concepts to work on and how they compose the music. We discover the deeper meaning to their albums "Hypnosis" and their newest release "The Death of All Religions" and see what effect the current corona virus situation has had on the band writing new material.
