Review of Oh.’s “Metallia” by Stefanos Stefanidis on Metalzone
by on November 9, 2018 in Metallia reviews

Stephanos Stefanidis editor on the Greek heavy metal website METALZONE reviewed “Metallia”

Metalzone and Metalzone radio have since 1999 helped many metal bands in Athens and Greece and have made a great contribution to the Greek Metal community.

He says about Metallia:

..pioneering musical ideas that spring from her mind, the soul of the artist, as well as her mastery in all the musical instruments she plays, make it rich musical experience.

There is a video clip for “Red Lion” – metal, with dynamic shredding and progressive rock feeling as well as modern elements. The guitars are delightful in Bee ”. Thrash riffs in ” Androgyny ”. The heavy like metal of “Resurrection” and the rhythmic ”Dragon’s Kiss” and ”Triumph ”.

Much more than interesting is this creation of Olivia Hadjiioannou, Oh, Metallia and I believe it will find many who will enjoy this release for a long time.

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.
