Bloodway | Prison Paradise | Official Video

I wrote and deleted for many times what I wanted to add here, in order to fit well with this video. It seems that I failed, everytime. Maybe is because of this moment, which is by far the most unfriendly for those who seek (generally speaking). Maybe is to much to write. “Prison paradise” is about remembering about the illusion we are living, about values imposed by society through your parents from the moment you get born, about rules of a double standard archetypal order, about how is to survive as a seeker behind the curtain of masked ignorance, born out of a type of racism nobody talks about. “Prison Paradise” is a song and an art video about the most hidden tabu of human society. This invention, called Eden, got lost in the plan of this prison, but there are people who are still able to read between the lines and to take further the magic of the dream. At the end of the day, if you destroy all the illusions, you might experience what others named “Paradise”. Thank you so much to all the people involved into this amazing project! I love you all!

Look my dear friend, there is some hope in your head. Enjoy it while I steal everything from inside you. People are watching, act like a real friend, let’s not make a scene. This is the story of this cover I made for Corrupt, a French metal band. Yeah, the album is entitled “Backstab”. For those who experienced the emotional blackmail.

Sarke | Lyric videos

I am super excited to present you my first project for SARKE (for those who do not know yet is the Norwegian band featuring Nocturno Culto on vocals)! So, this is the lyric video I made for their brand new single. SARKE will drop their fifth full-lenght “Viige Urh” on October 13! The first snippet of the upcoming album is available today – as their first single “Dagger Entombed” is out now!
SARKE says: “‘Dagger Entombed’ will be the first taste from our new album “Viige Urh”. This track has a thumb up guarantee. True spirit of metal, dark and heavy.
‘Viige Urh’ is on fire and it will be on fire for a long time. We feel we have taken SARKE up to a new level. With the songwriting, the sound and the heaviness of the album.”

This was my very first public exhibition in Greece! After so many years of working with Greek bands, I was invited by George Bokos of Grindhouse Studios Athens (http\://grindhousestudiosathens.com/) and the result and his implication was mind-blowing. This will be a start for a very long friendship :D. Thank you so much to all people attending, for all the great feedback and exchange of ideas. Thank you so much Vassilios Filippakopoulos for his wide open heart and amazing venue and crew…I am speechless! I dedicate this event in the memory of my grand-grand mother, who was a Greek woman.

The Day | Official video of memories

This is a very personal video I made out of a bunch of pictures taken in that magic place from the country side, where I spend half of my childhood. The pictures made between 2007 and 2017. All the animals featured in this video are gone now….except the horse. Time passing makes no exceptions. The song is the opening one of the soundtrack which was released by Svart records in April this year, as a de-luxe gatefold vinyl with 8 booklet pages. More info in the description of the video.
