Experimental psychedelic rock standouts Villagers Of Ioannina City have officially signed a worldwide contract with Napalm Records.

Since their formation in 2007, Villagers Of Ioannina City have drawn listeners into the heat – their sound slowly flowing melancholically yet booming with irrepressible energy and wildness. With a sonic synthesis of post and stoner rock influences and waving yet vibrant soundscapes topped by a large dose of Greek-folk elements, the quintet precisely hits the mark.

Opeth - In Cauda Venenum

In all honesty, I was not a big fan of Opeth when they were playing death metal, since I thought other bands were doing a much better job at it, but when they started going soft, circa “Still Life”, I thought they were losing every ounce of credibility.
