We got the chance to talk to Achelous. Here is their interview.
EM: What are the main influences of the band, both musical and lyrical?
Achelous are influenced by almost everything that has to do with hard n heavy music. But mostly we love more old school classic heavy metal and hard rock bands like Scorpions, Accept, Warlord, Manowar, Bathory, WASP etc. Regarding the lyrics, we are mostly interested in the Hellenic ancient history and mythology and also from fantasy novels such as Drangonlance and Forgotten Realms.
EM: Which do you think was your most important moment, as a band?
Our most important moment was the release of our first four track EP entitled “The Cold Winds Of Olympus” back in 2015. Also a very special moment for us was our sold out live appearance alongside the almighty Reflection and Forsaken.
EM: How do you see the future of the rock and metal scene in Europe and in your country?
Rock and Metal music is an established institution which means that it will be forever. This music is supported by millions of fans and every year new bands pop up all over the world. In our country although things are a little bit difficult the scene is very strong and very talented and it is determined to leave its mark globally.
EM: And finally, is there something you want to say to the visitors and fans of EUROCK MARATHON?
