PLANET OF ZEUS
Southern Rock Metal from Athens
Planet of Zeus are a heavy rock band from Athens, Greece. They have been around since 2000, playing extensively throughout their home country, just about anywhere they could, ranging from house parties to stadiums. Right now, Planet Of Zeus are the biggest rock band in Greece, consistently selling out every venue they play. Their annual Athens headlining show attracted more than 3.000 people and set a record of attendance in Greece’s underground rock scene. Their raw, sincere and constantly evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground following, which exceeds Greece’s geographical borders. After 5 consecutive European tours and several high profile festivals (Bloodstock etc), Planet of Zeus were the main support band at Clutch’s 2015 Psychic Warfare European Tour.
Planet of Zeus have released 3 albums. “Eleven the hard way”, was released in April 2008, through Casket Music/ Copro Records (UK). The album, although a debut, received great reviews from magazines, such as Metal Hammer and Kerrang and even Bruce Dickinson featured it on his BBC radio
show. The sophomore album “Macho Libre”, released in May 2011, through B-Otherside Records, was the album, that established the band as a major act in Greece and started creating a European buzz around Planet of Zeus. Since then, their two official music videos, “Leftovers” and “Vanity suit” have become classics. With their third album,“Vigilante”(2014, ihaveadrum records),the band upped the ante and created their own distinct blend of riff heavy, groove laden rock n roll.
At a time in which individualism seems to be the ultimate solution for some, Planet of Zeus come back with their highly anticipated fourth album, “Loyal to the pack”, an ode to the benefits of teamwork. Being well known for their never ending signature heavy riffs, gritty vocals and dancing grooves, the band decided to “shuffle their deck of cards” and embark on a new musical direction, encompassing melody, clean, but heartrending vocals and a newly found sense of dynamics. This mixture seems to establish a signature sound for Planet of Zeus, a sound that takes the listener on a journey throughout the history of heavy music. From Lynyrd Skynyrd to Mastodon, the Allman Brothers Band to Queens of the stone
age and AC/DC to Clutch.
Rock’n’Rollercoaster from Berlin
Treibende Drums, rollender Bass, symbiotische Gitarren, eine freudige Orgel und vielseitig kreativer Gesang bündeln Rock-Musik von den 60ern bis heute in einen spaßigen und aufregenden Cocktail, der seit Mitte 2009 von der sechsköpfigen Band OPERATORS aus Berlin serviert wird.
Ihren durchweg authentischen Rock’n’Rollercoaster haben die Jungs bereits bei zahlreichen Gigs mit Szenegrößen wie Vista Chino (ex Kyuss Lives!), Colour Haze, Orange Goblin, Karma to Burn, The Flying Eyes, Fatso Jetson, Samsara Blues Experiment, My Sleeping Karma und Sungrazer, sowie beim Stoned from the Underground Festival 2013 und beim Desertfest Berlin 2012 aufs Publikum losgelassen.
OPERATORS ist die Band für jede Situation, jede Location, jede Party. Von psychedelisch-entrückt bis heavy, geradeaus bis groovy, hüftschwingend bis haarschüttelnd: Alles ist möglich, alles ist drin! Diese Jungs machen, was sie lieben: ROCKEN!
“Es ist ne Achterbahnfahrt mit Bergen und Tälern, mit Spannungsaufbau und -entladung die in der clever kombinierten Summe einen Sound mit Erkennungswert ergibt. […] Einer der fünf Gründe, warum ich gerne zum Desertfest Berlin 2012 gefahren wäre.”
Psychedelic acoustic folk from Israel
Dor Koren (bass/voc) from TREE
Bigfoot is real and living in Israel,
Recording and producing music and art from his own home,
Dor Koren plays every instrument with grace of a mythical story and the magnitude of a wild animal,
Releasing a first album back in 2013, it was still as a home project,
But on the new Ep – BIGFOOT 2016
You can see the world through the eyes of Bigfoot, and take a journey inside, outside and allover the place,
This is one trip you will never return the same from,
Crazed Fuzzed instruments, Jazzy ferocious Drumming by Nave Koren,
An arsenal of keyboards, strings and allot of free spirit,
Only the bravest and most wild souls can endure,
Testing each ones courage and self beliefe
Mythus, legend, folklore tale, Music Odyssey,
The BIGFOOT is here to stay.**
