Review of Oh.’s “Metallia” by Keishiro Maki on Progarchives
by on January 18, 2019 in Metallia reviews

Keishiro Maki from Japan is an administrator on Progarchives for the Avant, Crossover & Neo Teams. On his bio on Progarchives he mentions:

Music, delicious whisky or Japanese sake, and gracious natural water are my elixir of life.

His way of life intermingles words of music with fine drinks. In this review, rare fine spirits (the eclectic Greek drink Retsina and even a fine red wine exclusively produced from Xinomavro variety of grapes from the northwestern city of Naoussa) that he knows of—even in the far reaches of Japan—is astounding.

He says of “Metallia”:

Another epochmaking one for me. Actually, this is my first OH.’s creation, that rings my bell. OH. aka Olivia HADJIIOANNOU is a brilliant multi-instrumentalist and composer hailing from Greece ‘a dream nation’ for me. Do hope I will make a Retsina toast with her. 😉

Cheers Keishiro! One day you never know, we can have that Retsina toast in Greece if the Fates allow 🙂

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.
