powerofprogSleeping World received a review from Nick Katona of Power of Prog. I’ve mentioned Nick in a previous post: Nick Katona: A power behind progressive rock music.

The review on the Power of Prog website:

Title: OH. Give Me More…

I first discovered this brilliantly talented Greek musician “OH” on one of my websites called Power of Prog. I was immediately drawn into her video Trials which is the opening track from her debut EP “Sleeping World”. Like a moth to a flame I was drawn in with her hauntingly beautiful voice and the epic sound of the music. I needed to know more… wanted to hear more. Fortunately, I discovered her bandcamp page where I seemed play her album over and over, no such thing as too much with this unbelievably talented musician. According to her bio she spends time between her home in Athens, Greece and New York obviously this provides her with a rich tapestry to add to her magical musical style.

I contacted Olivia immediately to let her know how much I thoroughly enjoyed her music and to find out more about her and her music. As it turns out “OH” is not a band at all it’s a one woman phenomenon. Olivia not only sings but also plays all the instruments on the EP as well as handling production and mixing duties. Let me tell you this is not an easy task for even the best and brightest but Olivia pulls it off like a well seasoned veteran.

In a nutshell, if you like quality music in the fashion of indie artist Happy Rhodes while at times, sounding like a cross between Kate Bush & Tori Amos as well as Magenta at times but with of a more gripping edge. If you’re looking for something new and refreshing than give this amazing lady a listen. This is first class cross-over prog at its best I highly recommend you check out “Sleeping World” by OH.

Love you told the story, thank you for this amazing review and the title is priceless.

CD Metallia - Oh. aka Olivia Hadjiioannou

“Metallia” by Oh. is an epical prog-metal composition in six parts. A multi-layered sonic piece of ravishing solo electric guitars, time-bending tempo shifts, grooving bass lines and deranged drums.

This instrumental progressive metal album will reveal its intricacies and hidden depths over time. It will extract from your mind pure visions, to mend your mental pictures, preen presumptions and to elicit an element of the unexpected…. because that is what will transmute your subliminal mind map into a remarkable blueprint which will lead you from wherever you are now, to wherever you want to be.
