I've started translating some of the articles in my blog. Most of them are stuff that I wrote for the Greek Metal Hammer but hopefully I will be translating all the rest too.

If by any chance you spot an article that is in Greek and it seems interesting, let me know and maybe it will be the next translation.

For now:



Vektor - Thrash till Heat Death! Interview with David DiSanto (2011)


Remember the Fallen: all of these were taken from a special Metal Hammer did on fallen heroes.
Keith Deen (Holy Terror) This includes an article on Holy Terror.


Any feedback is welcome.

Looks like a great blog. Haven't had time to have a proper look yet but some interesting choices in your best of 2015 list.

Looking forward to checking it out some more over the coming days. Thumbs Up

Nice blog, I'll have to check out some of those 2015 albums that I haven't gotten to hearing yet. Especially that Sacral Rage sounded good.

Completely nothing to do with metal Vic, but your blog says you're from Crete. Ever hear of this fella?


Kiwi soldier called Charles Upham. Won the Victoria Cross in Crete in WW2 and then won another one in North Africa. Was recommended for a third, but it got combined into the second one. Kiwi metal band Subtract wrote a song about him, but it's not on YouTube anywhere. I'll try and upload it at the weekend if I remember how.

I read the Bolt Thrower vs. neonazi scum article...great read Clap
...also the Patterson article. Always nice to read as much as possible about Patterson. I´m a huge Atheist fan.

Cool! Thanks for the feedback and kind words! I can't really take credit for the BT story though, that's pure Karl Willets, I just found it.

Vim, no, never heard of him before but I looked him up on wikipedia and was very impressed! I know the places where he fought very well, I spent one summer in one of them. Bolt Thrower should do a song about him! Bolt Thrower should do a song really.

^I get the feeling that I should check out Bolt Thrower. LOL

I've known about them for a while now but never gotten to checking them out, any recommendations for where to start?

:) These are the songs you are looking for (chronologically). TIP OF THE ICEBERG: 
World Eater
Cenotaph
What Dwells Within
The IVth Crusade (one of my favorite songs, ever)
Remembrance
No Guts, No Glory
Inside the Wire
Anti-Tank (Dead Armour)
When Cannons Fade

If you want to start properly with a whole album, I suggest War master for brilliant old school death metal, The IVth Crusade where they perfected their sound and Those Once Loyal (their last one), which is so good the band threw in the trash its successor as unworthy to follow it. Which is where we left them ten years ago and still hope that one day they will feel the need to write again.

^They were still touring in those years though, until their drummer died (last year?). I saw them on the tour supporting The VI Crusade and on the tour supporting ...for Victory. As you´d expect they slayed. The very show that I attended for The VI Crusade was filmed for MTV´s Headbangers Ball, so it might actually be out there somewhere.

Oh, I also forgot to say... Love the blog Vic! And don't forget In Battle There Is No Law. Not as heavy as what came after it, but it's a brilliant brand of almost out of control full throttle death/grind with insane lead guitar almost flung at random all over the place. I love how chaotic and unrestrained it is.

I was listing songs mostly, you know the hits (top 50 billboard at least, haha) but yeah, In Battle There Is No Law is a classic, even if I find it to be the weakest in their discography along with Mercenary - which says a lot really if those two are your worst albums!

Thanks for the kind words for the blog! :)

Yeah, Martin Kearns died last September. I know they were touring, I saw them in 2010 myself (better late than never, their first gig in Greece) and it was incredible. I am kinda hoping that maybe Andy Whale will return, after all he is still active, last month they announced a new band featuring him and Karl Willets, Benediction/Cerebral Fix bassist Frank Healy and current Benediction guitarist (I forget his name).

https://www.facebook.com/Memoriam2016/?fref=ts

The idea is that since Bolt Thrower is on hold, Willets wanted to do stuff. But the point is that there is someone to fill the position of drummer. I like the idea of Memoriam but it's not like I'm expecting it to be as good as Bolt Thrower, since the major composers are missing...

^Yeah I read about Memoriam and made a note to check them out when they release something. A band with members and ex-members of Bolt Thrower and Benediction doing something together doesn´t sound like bad news to me Clap
