Bands Worth Watching
Coming from Volos and based in Athens, Bazooka is one of the loudest and most energetic bands in the scene. The five-piece punk rockers have two drummers in their lineup, something that makes them a great live experience. Their lyrics are in Greek and English, and they are releasing their material worldwide from the American indie label Slovenly Records.
Baby Guru is an ever-evolving musical organism conceived in 2009 by three childhood friends in an Athens basement. The founding members have an obsession with kraut-rock, psychedelic music and Afrobeat experimentation. Baby Guru have a love for the analog warmth of proto-electronica and the raw power of garage punk, while fiddling with grooves and vocal lines ranging from meditative to Dadaistic. They have released two albums to critical and commercial success through Inner Ear Records.
Planet of Zeus is a heavy rock, southern metal band from Athens. They formed in 2000 and since then have extensively toured around Greece, playing in every venue possible, ranging from shitholes to stadiums. Their raw, sincere and constantly evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground fan base that exceeds Greece’s geographical borders and has allowed them to share the stage with many big international acts.
