If you believe it's becoming ever harder to make music that's individual, fascinating, contemporary, timeless and just tinglingly exctiting, then you've clearly not come across Achilla as yet. So, just who are Achilla, and what makes them one of the best young rock bands around right now? Take a Hungarian singer, Martamaria, and an Italian guitarist, Daniele Panza. Add the Greek bassist Gus Macricostas to the Italian drummer Vincenzo Infusino and Hungarian keyboarder Gabor Soulavy. Stir vigorously in a London setting and you have Achilla. It's a five-piece where each person having a tremendous range and instinctive talent, but the combination is almost magical. Truly a case of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. They blend a smorgasbord of influences (from extreme metal to gothic, electronic to world music, folk to progressive), in the process coming up with a visionary sound. Martamaria’s amazing range (she’s actually cited in the Guinness Book Of Records!) is brilliantly complemented by astonishing instrumentalists. Power, power, precision and passion - this lot have it all. Acclaimed by TotalRock Radio, Metal Hammer magazine (UK), Classic Rock magazine, Fireworks magazine and The Guardian newspaper, the band have already had one track – Wild Flower – showcased on a cover mounted CD by Powerplay magazine, while two other songs, Arashi and Mirrors, are included on a Metal Hammer CD. Constantly touring, Achilla are that rarity among modern bands: one that pays respect to the rich heritage of rock, while also striding determinedly forward into an exciting future. This is one band who prove uniqueness is still possible in music, but also have the ability to connect to the masses without compromising their own dreams and aspirations. That's enough of the reading bit. Now listen to them! Because in their hands, music is still the universal language. Music is still the greatest expression of emotion. Achilla Biog by Malcolm Dome (Metal Hammer)
Klogr (pronounced Kay - log - are) is a newly formed project which sits on the thin line between alternative rock and alternative metal. The band's name is a reference to the law of Weber-Fechner, developed in the second half of the 800, which is known as the fundamental psychophysical relationship (S = K log R). The project, led by Gabriele "Rusty" Rustichelli (producer at ZetaFactory, former guitarist of SensAzionE and other Italian alternative projects), develops a powerful sound that draws energy from a philosophy that challenges the contemporary culture, where every sense is clevery used against men in the name of profit. The idea took shape in May 2010 and in June of 2011 the group began recording for their debut album at the ZetaFactory studio. From that point on, Klogr captured the attention of the public and aroused much curiousity among professionals and fans by publishing several viral videos, showing the progress of the band in the studio. 11-11-11 brought the world premier of the band's live show. The powerful attack of the eleven songs on the tracklist of "Till you decay" was greatly enjoyed and recieved well by the enthusiastic fans. ALBUM 'Till You Decay' is an alternative rock/metal album, in which both the instrumental and the vocal lines are delivered very heavily at times and more melodic at other times, creating the sound of Klogr. The whole record is based on the concept that "the society around us controls us, judges us, conditions us and ultimately suffocates us. A psychological game of massacre, control and power over the masses, in which they use fear and anxieties to unstabalize a person into something more fragile, more controllable and more subservient... till you decay. After the ten video presentations of the band's sound, the first full-track to run on it's network was 'Live Dying', the opening track of the album. 'Bleeding' the first chosen single, due out in January, it will be accompanied along with a video that combines graphics and cinematography in line with the mood of the band. 'Till You Decay' is scheduled to be released worldwide in January 2012 and will be supported by a U.S. West Coast tour and several European dates.
