Thelemite is a new Greek metal band. Their mastermind of Thelemite is Giannis Manopoulos (guitars, vocals, keyboards). His father used to play the guitar in Vice Human (one of the most known 80’s heavy metal bands from Greece).The bassist of the band is Nikos Michalakakos who has played in Ragenheart and Spitfire. The style of the band is melodic heavy metal. The sound approach of Thelemite reminded me a bit of Black Sabbath (Tony Martin era). The album is good and the guitar work is remarkable. The sound production is not so good and the vocals of Manopoulos can be even better in the next album of the band. The tracks that I enjoyed more were “Days & Nights”, “Doomed to Passion” and “For your Eyes”. “Keitaro” has also some really great guitar solos! In conclusion this is a good debut album from a new band. Thelemite is now working on their second release so we are waiting anxiously for their next step.
