LABEL SYMMETRIC RECORDS
OUR RATING 83/100
After 25 years playing music, recording, producing, performing and touring, Bob Katsionis (FIREWIND/SERIOUS BLACK, among others) decides to make the next big step in his musical career. As a producer he started SOUND SYMMETRY STUDIO back in 1996, producing a large variety of artists and bands spanning from Pop/Rock to Heavy,Power and Extreme Metal. He also personally takes care of photoshoots, cover artwork and booklet design and through his own video making company PROGRESSIVE VISION GROUP he has directed more than 120 videoclips throughout last 16 years. Last step was a label called SYMMETRIC RECORDS. So, newfound SYMMETRIC RECORDS debuts with the release of Heavy Metallers' TERRA INCΩGNITA full length album called "Fragments Of A Ruined Mind" The quintet from Athens led by frontman Billy Vass, delivers an Heavy Metal album where everything sounds so inspired and powerful.
In a world where all was written, they're able to made an album with a deeply own style.
Terra IncΩgnita's second album is a milestone both for them and SYMMETRIC RECORDS and producer Bob Katsionis states "I loved their music from the very first note. I met them at a festival where they grabbed my attention with both their heaviness and their sensitivity. It was a very easy and fun to make album and I think it features something that it's missing a lot these days: the ability to play for yourself and not to surprise anyone.Really glad I'm debuting my label with them!"
After an epic/cinematic intro, the first two shots are MY EMPTINESS and IN THE MIST, where classic metal, epic, sharp riffs and an amazing solo show us the classy trademark of the band.
If THE WORD is more ordinary, A DAY WITHOUT LOSS is the only melodic break.
CONQUEROR provides a different range of solutions, really "progressive" in its essence, while LIFE BEGINS AGAIN is one of our favs.
They go on with THE MIDNIGHT LIES, a great example of metal of the modern day, with a great solo, powerful and fast.
After the great COVENANT and SIGN WITH BLOOD, it's the turn for MY RUINED MIND, that ends in the best way this great platter.
