Fallen Angel

Galatsi, Athens (Attica)
Melodic Heavy Metal, Hard Rock

Here we have a nice Melodic Heavy Metal/Hard Rock act from Galatsi/Athens. The band was formed in 1991 and included among its ranks brothers (?) Kostas and Akis Theocharis (vocals/guitars and guitars, respectively), Stelios Karakyklas (bass), Brian (drums) and Dimitris Fardelas (keyboards) – all of which were fairly young at the time. Influences included the big Melodic Heavy Metal/Hard Rock bands of the era, such as BON JOVI, DOKKEN and EUROPE.

The anglicized names of the band members, coupled with the relatively commercial angle of their 1980s-styled demo “Broken Wings” (1991) suggest that these guys were aiming high. And frankly, “Broken Wings” did show a lot of potential for such a young band (they were teenagers, after all). The band allegedly had enough material to record more demos, but except for a couple of compilation appearances, “Broken Wings” is the only known release by the band at current. Apparently, they did perform quite a few local gigs around the time of their demo release though.

In case you have any additional information to share, please get in touch.

Compilation appearances:
* Metal Darkness Compilation Tape [Cass, Comp: Metal Darkness Zine, 1991]
* Metal Power [Cass, Comp, Numbered: Heavy – Rock Tapes, 1992]
