Back on Track #14 ~ Sowing Scorn

Sowing Scorn, our post punk anthem was referred to as ‘An Anarchic Lullaby‘ by Marios. It’s a good that one, I would say it’s our ‘Not to Touch the Earth‘, or our ‘I Wanna be Your Dog‘. It was written in a time of inner struggle and in search for the light… I remember me…

Back on Track #7 ~ A Void

A Void is one of the old songs that were pilled up for ages… Funnily enough my main influences for the song were quite thrash-metal from my wild young youth… And it’s a celebration of loss and affliction… At some point I tried to rewrite the lyrics in a lipogrammatic fashion like Georges Perec‘s novel…

Phase Back on Track #5 ~ Ibidem

So here’s another favourite! What came to be our most spiritual work… If I can brag about something is having a good ear for music and being a sufficient artistic director… I remember talking with Alex while he was subtly strumming a guitar and I stopped the conversation when I heard something interesting and urged him to…

Phase Back on Track #9 ~ Static

Now that’s a favourite one… Static was finished right before our second gig ever where it debuted as well… There are two kinds of songs for us the ones we first play live and then we record, and the ones we are recording beforehand. Static is a living example of the first instance, it being…

Phase Back on Track #4 ~ Transcendence

Transcendence was created, out of the first bunch of ideas I’ve been hoarding; and for a while, there was just the first progression standing there along with the first verse… Touching ground, held by an unseen bound / for western star drags me way to far / to find you my love, to build a connection…

Phase – Amethyst review by Tom Hollingworth

  Sunday, 8 June 2014 Phase – ‘Amethyst’ –  Review Phase – ‘Amethyst’ –  Review [2014.06.03] Tom Hollingworth For NARC Magazine Demos – July Edition Phase’s song Amethyst creeps across the ears like an arachnid’s silhouette; a king of fear. Thanos Grigoriou’s vocals snarl over slow mixolydian chords as brutish drums march the beast forward….

A Dim Western Star and the Red Crescent

It’s our five years anniversary of our concert in the Syrian capital… Right in the heart of Old Damascus… Although we’ve been observing the situation there closely, regardless of the media’s intermittent coverage, from the very beginning; we’ve never used our audience’s emotional response to drag attention, or internet micro-fame on us by making sentimental statements…

Phase Back on Track #15 ~ Amethyst

The main riff to Amethyst came into being during an evening we’ve been staying in a friend’s house with another mate of ours, chilling while the exam period was on for the course we’ve been all attending at the time (all three of us dropped out of, but that’s another story). I was digging my mate’s guitar…

The Wait reviewed on Noizy.gr

During an interview we conducted with Phase a while ago, they were telling us a bunch of things about “The Wait”. They said it was a “Phase” of recordings and various procedures, that it was basically a concept album in its own unique way and that they were actually… loving it! Well, it’s a good…

Phase Back on Track #2 ~ Perdition

The very first song we finished, the first to rehearse and the first to play live. The most discussed one and the most characteristic of our fairly unique style. Just not to be repeated: ”Back in 2004, when I tried to form the band with my good friend Chris Gioldasis and decided to write new…
