Methexis- Topos CD (Self Released)
This is the 3rd album by Greek Multi-instrumentalist, Nikitas Kissonas, who composed, arranged, produced and played all the guitars, basses, and keyboards. There are some guests adding flute, trumpet and Theodore on the drums. Sadly, I lost my very detailed review of this album as I took you through each minute and I have no time to do it again, after a 3rd listen. Lets just say this is a long journey with many changes occurring and the track taking some very different and unexpected twists and turns along the way. A very emotional ride and some of this would be great film music. It starts off quite heavy in the first track but these heavy guitars disappear and don’t reappear much until the 2nd track. Some exceptional guitar at times. You still get the feel that it was pieces together and not played by a real band but these are great tracks if you take the time to let yourself go on the ride with Nikitas. These tracks would be very difficult to perform live or it would require months of preparation.
