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…

Chris Tsantalis’ Review on the Wait – Poetry and Psychedelia

I like Phase and the most prominent reason is that they are inquiring minds… I couldn’t expect anything less from some restive spirits, and the Wait is what should have come to engrave them in my conscience! How would you like if David Bowie was in a chareem jamming along with The Tea Party? How would…

Dave Wolff’s Review of the Wait

The latest in a long line of independently recorded and released recordings by this experimental band from Greece. If this is your first exposure to Phase you might find it difficult to believe they have this much staying power sans label backing. But they’ve managed to remain consistent releasing material and keeping it fresh and inventive…
