On November 15, 2018, I headed out to the Metalzone Radio studio Irakleion in Athens, Greece to speak with Kostas “PureViL” Kyriakakis the founder and chief editor of the Greek heavy metal website Metalzone and producer of Metalzone radio and show “This is Heavy Metal”.
We talked in depth about “Metallia” as well as discussing the state of the music industry, music production and distribution. Kostas spoke in depth about metal music and the metal community.
Kostas is a veteran of classic metal radio and it was very refreshing to find how broad-minded and “progressive’ is his point of view. He is one of the few of the metal genre who embrace new music and it was an honour that he felt Metallia worthy of his listeners. It is radio hosts like Kosta that bring new sounds to the world’s ears.
