T-Rex - Electric warrior (U.k. 1971)

Electric Warrior is the second studio album by English rock act T. Rex, their sixth if including the group's earlier incarnation as Tyrannosaurus Rex. The album marked a turning point in the band's sound, dispensing with the folk-oriented music of the group's previous albums and pioneering a flamboyant, pop-friendly take on electric rock and roll known as glam rock.[1]

The album reached number 1 on the UK charts and became the best selling album of 1971. The top 10 single "Bang A Gong (Get It On)" also became the band's only US hit. Electric Warrior has since received acclaim as a pivotal release of the glam rock movement

Ant Trip Ceremony - 24 hours (folk rock, psychedelic 1968)

The Ant Trip Ceremony was an American psychedelic rock band formed in Logan, Utah in 1967. There were two incarnations of the band, one in the autumn of 1967, and the latter in the summer of the same year. The second rendition of the band was based in Oberlin College, and gained local recognition for their improvisational instrumentals. In 1968, the band released one album before disbanding that since then has garnered reinterest for its experimental electronic rock musical style. As a result, reissues of the album have been released

Below - Upon A Pale Horse (2107)

In 2011, Below was formed in Sweden. They decided to start a doom band that would pay tribute to the more epic, heavy and dark styles of doom.

Below started writing songs, and in November 2012, a 4-track EP was recorded at Deep Blue Studios in Sweden. The EP received praise from all areas of the industry, with Metal Hammer Germany awarding the EP an almost perfect rating of 9/10. With only one unreleased EP, the band was able to book a 10-day tour through Denmark, Holland and Germany. The final show of that tour was the Hammer of Doom festival in Germany.

Below recorded their debut album in 2013 at Andy LaRocque’s (King Diamond) Sonic Train Studios. This critically acclaimed full-length, Across the Dark River, was released in April 2014 via Metal Blade Records.

In February 2015, Below went on a two-week tour of Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Holland and Poland. Since then, Below has also performed at different festivals, including Germany’s Summer Breeze Festival, Athens’ Up the Hammers, Germany’s Hammer of Doom and Norway’s Tons Of Rock festival.

In May 2017, Below will release their sophomore album, Upon A Pale Horse, via Metal Blade Records.The album was recorded at Deep Blue Studios in their hometown of Nykoping, Sweden. While staying true to the core of the music that is Below (heavy riffs, haunting melodies and huge atmospheres), Upon A Pale Horse also offers a broader variety to the songs, with the band’s slowest song to-date, as well as the fastest, the shortest, and the longest. Additionally, the album features several guest appearances, such as backing vocals by Sorcerer‘s Anders Engberg and a speech by Alan Averill of Primordial.

Γιωργος Μπατης (Giorgos Mpatis) - συλλογή (collection)

Yiorgos Batis (Greek: Γιώργος Μπάτης, also Giorgos Batis) (1885 – 10 March 1967) was one of the first rebetes influential to rebetikomusic. His real name was Yiorgos Tsoros although he was known as Yiorgos Ampatis. He had a great love for music and musical instruments (bouzouki, baglamas, etc.).
Life and career

He was born in Methana in 1885 and moved to Piraeus when he was very young.

He served in the Greek army from 1912 to 1918. In the mid-1920s, he opened a music school called "Carmen". He opened a café named "Georges Baté" in 1931 and formed one of the most important scenes of rebetiko music. He continued to work as a quack-salesman, improvising drugs for painful teeth and other minor ailments. He kept a collection of many instruments and also used to name them. In 1933, Yiorgos Batis did his first sound-recording with bouzouki in Greece. In the 1930s, he dedicated himself solely to music and collaborated closely with, among others, Markos Vamvakaris in the rebetiko band ("kompania") called I Tetras i Xakousti tou Peiraios (Η τετράς η ξακουστή του Πειραιώς) --the Famous Quartet of Pireos. However, it did not light up the charts. He appeared in Alekos Sakelariou's film "Oi papatzides (Οι παπατζήδες)" (1954). He died in Piraeus on March 10, 1967.

Γιώργος Μπάτης

Ο Γιώργος Μπάτης (πραγματικό όνομα: Γιώργος Τσώρος, 1885 - 10 Μαρτίου 1967), γνωστός και ως Γιώργος Αμπάτης, ήταν Έλληνας μουσικός. Ήταν ένας από τους πρώτους και σημαντικότερους μουσικούς του ρεμπέτικου καθώς επίσης και γνωστός μάγκας του Πειραιά. Είχε μεγάλη αγάπη για τη μουσική και διατηρούσε σημαντική συλλογή μουσικών οργάνων. Είχε πέντε μπουζούκια, δύο μπαγλαμάδες, ένα μισομπούζουκο, μια κιθάρα και μια ρομβία-λατέρνα.
Βιογραφία[Επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Γεννήθηκε το 1885 στα Παλαιά Λουτρά του δήμου Μεθάνων και σε ηλικία 8 ετών μετακόμισε οικογενειακώς στον Πειραιά.

Στα μέσα της δεκαετίας του ΄20 άνοιξε χoροδιδασκαλείο το οποίο ονομαζόταν «Κάρμεν». Εργάστηκε ακόμη ως πωλητής αυτοσχέδιων φαρμάκων κατά του πονόδοντου, περιπλανώμενος οδοντογιατρός, μικροπωλητής και ενεχυροδανειστής. Το 1931άνοιξε ένα καφενείο, το «Ζώρζ Μπατέ», το οποίο αποτέλεσε ένα από τα λίκνα του ρεμπέτικου. Στο καφενείο του σύχναζε και ο ποιητής Ναπολέων Λαπαθιώτης.

Την δεκαετία του ΄30 ασχολήθηκε επαγγελματικά με τη μουσική και συνεργάστηκε στενά, με τον Μάρκο Βαμβακάρη, τον Στράτο Παγιουμτζή και τον Ανέστο Δελιά στη ρεμπέτικη κομπανία «Η τετράς η ξακουστή του Πειραιώς». Το 1933 ο Γιώργος Μπάτης κάνει τις πρώτες ηχογραφήσεις με μπουζούκι στην Ελλάδα. Ωστόσο δεν άφησε μεγάλη δισκογραφία (μόλις 17 τραγούδια), διότι όπως και πολλοί άλλοι μεγάλοι ρεμπέτες της εποχής (Βαγγέλης Παπάζογλου, Ανέστος Δελιάς, Γιοβάν Τσαούς κ.α.) σταμάτησε να ηχογραφεί το 1937 επειδή αρνούνταν να υποβάλλεται στην λογοκρισία από το καθεστώς του Ιωάννη Μεταξά.

Πέθανε στις 10 Μαρτίου το 1967 και θάφτηκε αγκαλιά με τον αγαπημένο του μπαγλαμά, όπως ο ίδιος είχε ζητήσει.

Kawir - Exilasmos (2017)

Therthonax (a.k.a. Mentor) formed the band and with the help of Stefan Necroabyssious and Eskarth the Dark One recorded a track which was released as a split 7" with Sigh by Cacophonous Records rec.
Drummer Nikos Samakouris (aka Vriareos) joined and "To Cavirs" mini-LP was recorded in '95, and later released the "To Cavirs" CD, which had 3 extra tracks. Participated on the 1997 tribute to Bathory CD ''Hellas Salutes the Vikings'' with the song ''Sadist'', which is the only recording with Iapetos 666 on vocals so far.
In 2013 the band played a live gig for their 20th anniversary in Athens (Kyttaro Club). Ravenlord Wampyri Draconium and Acherontas v.p.9 did guest vocals on this show.

In 1999 Therthonax and Diavelgenus a.k.a. Archemoros changed their names.

The band name can be seen also as ΚΑΒΕΙΡΟΣ due to its Greek spelling. In 2007 Mentor created a folk project named ΚΑΒΕΙΡΟΣ.

In Greek mythology, the Cabeiri, Cabiri or Kabiri[1][pronunciation?] (Ancient Greek: Κάβειροι, Kábeiroi) were a group of enigmatic chthonicdeities. They were worshiped in a mystery cult closely associated with that of Hephaestus, centered in the north Aegean islands of Lemnosand possibly Samothrace—at the Samothrace temple complex—and at Thebes.[2] In their distant origins the Cabeiri and the Samothracian gods may include pre-Greek elements,[3] or other non-Greek elements, such as Hittite, Thracian, proto-Etruscan[4] or Phrygian. The Lemniancult was always local to Lemnos, but the Samothracian mystery cult spread rapidly throughout the Greek world during the Hellenistic period, eventually initiating Romans.

The ancient sources disagree about whether the deities of Samothrace were Cabeiri or not; and the accounts of the two cults differ in detail. But the two islands are close to each other, at the northern end of the Aegean, and the cults are at least similar, and neither fits easily into the Olympic pantheon: the Cabeiri were given a mythic genealogy as sons of Hephaestus and Cabeiro.[5] The accounts of the Samothracian gods, whose names were secret, differ in the number and sexes of the gods: usually between two and four, some of either sex. The number of Cabeiri also varies, with some accounts citing four (often a pair of males and a pair of females), and some even more, such as a tribe or whole race of Cabeiri, often presented as all male.[6]

The Cabeiri were also worshipped at other sites in the vicinity, including Seuthopolis in Thrace and various sites in Asia Minor. According to Strabo, Cabeiri are most honored in Imbros and Lemnos but also in other cities too


In myth, the Cabeiri bear many similarities to other fabulous races, such as the Telchines of Rhodes, the Cyclopes, the Dactyls, the Korybantes, and the Kuretes. These different groups were often confused or identified with one another since many of them, like the Cyclopes and Telchines, were also associated with metallurgy.

Diodorus Siculus said of the Cabeiri that they were Idaioi dactyloi ("Idaian Dactyls"). The Idaian Dactyls were a race of divine beings associated with the Mother Goddess and with Mount Ida, a mountain in Phrygia sacred to the goddess. Hesychius of Alexandria wrote that the Cabeiri were karkinoi ("crabs", in modern Greek: "Καβούρια", kavouria). The Cabeiri as Karkinoi were apparently thought of as amphibious beings (again recalling the Telchines). They had pincers instead of hands, which they used as tongs (Greek: karkina) in metalworking.

It has been suggested by Comyns Beaumont[21] that the Orphic mysteries may have had their origins with the Cabeiri.

Οι Κάβειροι
(ή Κάβιροι στη Βοιωτία) ήταν θεότητες αρχαίας Ελληνικής μυστηριακής λατρείας η οποία πρωτοεμφανίζεται στη Λήμνο, την Ίμβρο, τη Σαμοθράκη και τη Θήβα (ή πιο συγκεκριμένα, αρχικά τουλάχιστον, σε περιοχή της Βοιωτίας λίγο δυτικά της Θήβας) αλλά αργότερα επεκτείνεται και αλλού (Μικρά Ασία, Μακεδονία, Θράκη, υπόλοιπο Αιγαίο).


Οι Κάβειροι συχνά, ήδη από την αρχαιότητα, ταυτίζονται και με τους "Μεγάλους Θεούς" των Μυστηρίων της Σαμοθράκης. Θεωρούνταν γενικώς κακοποιά πνεύματα, κακοί δαίμονες που από τα βάθη της γης και από το βυθό της μητέρας τους της θάλασσας εξακόντιζαν φωτιά και τράνταζαν τη γη. Σε αυτούς αποδιδόταν οι σεισμοί και οι πυρκαγιές. Επίσης ήταν κοντοί στο ύψος, είχαν μεγάλα γεννητικά όργανα και ήταν υπερφυσικά πνεύματα που εκπροσωπούσαν την υπόγεια φωτιά και τις μεταλλευτικές εργασίες. Ο Ηρόδοτος ισχυρίζεται πως ήταν γιοι του Ήφαιστου και πως του αντικαθιστούσαν τους χαλκουργούς Κύκλωπες. Ο Φερεκύδης προσθέτει ότι μητέρα τους ήταν η Καβείρη, κόρη του Πρωτέα. Σύμφωνα με άλλη παράδοση, ήταν παιδιά του Δία και της Ηλέκτρας, δηλαδή της φωτεινής φλόγας.

Ενώ ο Βίκερ και ο Μάρεϋ δέχονται πως το όνομα είναι ελληνικό και προέρχεται από το ρήμα καίω, πολλοί εξακολουθούν να θεωρούν την προέλευσή τους άγνωστη, πιθανώς μη ελληνική και συχνά έχουν διατυπωθεί θεωρίες προελληνικής[1][2] ή ανατολικής[3] προέλευσης: το όνομα Κάβειρος, σύμφωνα με τον Γκρόουτ, προέρχεται από το σημιτικό καβιρίμ"ισχυρός, μεγάλος, δυνατός".

Οι Κάβειροι της Θήβας αναφέρονται σε αφιερωματικές επιγραφές ως "Κάβιρος" και "Παις" (γιος του Κάβιρου). Σύμφωνα με τον Παυσανία, η Καβείρια Δήμητρα ξεκίνησε τις τελετές των Καβείρων της Θήβας ως δώρο προς τον Προμηθέα, ο οποίος ήταν ένας από τους Κάβειρους και το γιο του, τον Αιτναίο.[4] Ο ίδιος αναφέρει αλλού πως ο Αθηναίος Μέθαπος, αφού επανοργάνωσε τα μυστήρια στην Ανδανία της Μεσσηνίας, ίδρυσε τα μυστήρια των Καβείρων της Θήβας.[5]

Για τους Κάβειρους της Λήμνου ο Ακουσίλαος αναφέρει ότι ο Ήφαιστος και η θεά Καβειρώ γέννησαν τον Καδμίλο (ή Κασμίλο ή Κάμιλλο), ο οποίος γέννησε τους τρεις Κάβειρους, που με τη σειρά τους γέννησαν τρεις Καβειρίδες νύμφες.[6] Το σύμβολο των τριών Λήμνιων Καβείρων ήταν η λαβίδα και το σφυρί του μεταλλουργού.

Μεγάλοι Θεοί της Σαμοθράκης

Στο ιερό των Μεγάλων Θεών στη Σαμοθράκη οι "Θεοί Μεγάλοι" ή "Θεοί" δεν αναφέρονται ποτέ ως Κάβειροι, ωστόσο ο Στησίμβροτος ο Θάσιος[7] και ο Ηρόδοτος (ο οποίος έμμεσα αναφέρει ότι ήταν μύστης ο ίδιος) [8] ταυτίζουν τους δύο. Ο περιηγητής Μνασέας δίνει τα ονόματά τους ως Αξίερος, Αξιόκερσα και Αξιόκερσος, τους οποίους ταυτίζει αντίστοιχα με τους Δήμητρα, Περσεφόνη και Άδη ενώ ο σχολιαστής του Μνασέα προσθέτει ένα τέταρτο, το Καδμίλο τον οποίο ταυτίζει με τον Ερμή.[9]

Στα Αργοναυτικά του Απολλώνιου Ρόδιου, οι Αργοναύτες αποβιβάζονται στη Σαμοθράκη και μυώνται στα μυστήρια ώστε να πλεύσουν με ασφάλεια υπό την προστασία των Καβείρων

1000mods - Repeated Exposure To (2016)

1000mods is a stoner rock band from Chiliomodi, Greece, formed in 2006.[1] The name of the group is a pun linked to the village in which they were formed, as "a thousand" is pronounced "chillia" in Greek. Their main music influences include bands such as Black Sabbath, Colour Haze, Kyuss and MC5.
“… high sound levels (more than 80 decibels) might cause permanent impairment of hearing”, is actually the rest of the phrase that completes the title of the latest 1000mods album. With their third full-length, Repeated Exposure To…, Greece’s 1000mods affirm their place at the head of the pack of European heavy rock and roll. I mean that without qualification. Not just Greek heavy, but Europe as a whole.
