“Synemotion” is a thirty-two minute instrumental metal concept album of nine tracks — one of which is an epic spoken word narration.

The album leads the listener on a spiritual and psychological odyssey through complex states of being and feeling.

Each song reveals a temporary but distinct feeling encountered when overwhelmed by experience on earth. The album touches on urges of escapism in song, “Run Away”, pangs of anger and frustration in “Rumpus” – recoil in “Subterfuge” – desperate longing in “Elegy” and betrayal in the song “Deception”. Finally, pushing one to an ultimate point of surrender in “Reception” – where the gift is awareness is given – tinged of course with the irony that the cycle of emotions will only begin once again in “World of Warcraft”.

The spoken word title track, “Synemotion” – narrates the entire journey from fear and pain — to release and self-acceptance. But most importantly, the song uncovers a path out of despair and desperation into an even more compelling and complex palette of emotions and sensations. The song gives hope and strength that one can walk through life even with one’s open wounds and have an even greater experience than before.

The rock/metal artist OH. released the album Synemotion on April 24, 2015. The digital download and the Limited Edition Double Gatefold vinyl are available now on Bandcamp and iTunes.

Reviews

Wonderful melodies and the constant flow through complex spaces stimulate impassionate moods and emotions; sometimes hammock, sometimes bed of nails, but always full of hope.” ~ Peter “Brutus” Habermann – DEAF FOREVER


It is well worth spending about 40 minutes of your time to take this journey, with the talent of this 25 year old Greek-American. With lots of music, with few but essential words, and with originality. Something tells me that we will soon be hearing again about her even larger (music) plans … ~ Elias “DEMON” Papazoglou – Hard Music


“Something rare and unique about this artist. A young female multi instrumentalist composer and vocalist in the realm of progressive rock. Makes me a bit misty in this day of EDM muzak. Lovely textures throughout, from acoustic guitars, haunting melodies behind the powerful narration. Solid Prog cred on the arrangement, with stellar production value head to toe on sound and image. OH is force to be embraced with gratitude by any ProgArt rock fan, of which I am one.”
Mark Alan Dooley ~ Fluence


Definitely a piece of progressive art by a very talented young woman. ~ Angelo Hulshout – Background Magazine


OH. – A Bombshell. Take the time to listen and see this album is a bombshell to the world of guitar! ~ Progcritique.com
OH. Yes! Providing proof positive for all time that Greek women rock, here is OH. with a tune from her 2015 album Synemotion. It’s clear that OH. is a significant talent, sure to impress again. ~ Jon Davis – Exposé


Anyone that is into guitar virtuoso types of music will love this release. Some of the tracks I found exhilarating and others interesting but in the end an appreciation for the overall talent this artist brings to the table. You can count on some amazing six string runs throughout this listen.
She has my utmost respect for such a huge accomplishment. ~ Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck – MuzikMan Productions


The gorgeously packaged double vinyl record is a worthy addition to any collection. The heavy music is powerful and explosive, and OH truly leads you on an emotional journey.
The song synchronizes the emotional journey into something tangible and accessible, and you get to hear a bit more of OH’s gorgeous voice which she highlighted in her 2013 debut, Sleeping World. When you know someone can sing, but yet they eschew that for the larger vision, which is to wring emotion out of the listener on the strength of the music alone, that takes courage and confidence.
I told you OH was precocious and creative. She’s also strikingly beautiful, as one can experience in her sensual and artistic music videos that accompany this release (check out the track Run Away on Youtube: (https://youtu.be/m2Xoc8fyGb8). OH is definitely an artist to keep an eye on. With her talent, vision, and drive, she is definitely going to make a name for herself in the music world. ~ Dave – Virtuosity

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.
