Translation from French DeepL

If I tell you Oh. (with a point), you may think of the title of a sanitized tabloid. Wrong Choice: Oh, it’s Olivia Hadjiioannou, a Greek musician, multi-instrumentalist and composer, who has just released a six-track mini-album entitled Metallia.

As its name suggests, Metallia is metal. Moreover, instrumental progressive metal; there is certainly voice, but it is more in the register of “disembodied screams” than “traditional singing”. In fact, it’s a little prog, a little symphonic, a little experimental and a little bit I don’t know.

To be very honest, I’m not really a fan. It’s either too experimental or too much stacked stuff for me. Original, no doubt, but a little too cluttered for my taste. That said, the album is on Bandcamp, at a very reasonable price. So it’s easy to check whether you like it or not.

Olivia Hadjiioannou, Ολίβια Χατζηιωάννου, Oh., Press photos, Official Photos, Music, News, Greece, metal, RockMulti-instrumentalist and director Olivia Hadjiioannou as the artist Oh. has been honored for her ingenuity, innovation and creativity in music and video with multiple international awards. She made her debut as Oh. on the international music scene with the award-winning music video, "Trials" in 2013 – cited as one of the 50 top events to mark Greece during the economic crisis. With the advances of immersive video, she released her single "Love of Avalanches", mentioned in Huffington Post as one of first 360-degree immersive VR videos released by a Greek artist on YouTube in 2016.

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.
