Puta Volcano & Purple Dino – 19 май 2018 – Live & Loud, София
Puta Volcano is a heavy rock band from Athens, Greece, influenced by bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains, The Mars Volta, Baroness and Carpenter Brut.
Expressed via groovy riffs, gritty female vocals and picturesque story telling, their sound could be described as a road trip through desolate sands.
The latest album “Harmony of Spheres” is launched in April 2017, following the 2015 “The Sun” and 2011 “Represent Victory Below Eye”.
Known for their energetic live performances, some highlights in their career are their appearance in 2015 Rockwave alongside The Black Angels and The Black keys and as an opening act for Spirit Caravan at their 2014 Athens live.
Puta Volcano are:
Luna Stoner (vocals)
Alex Pi (guitar)
Steven Stefanidis (drums)
Greek heavy rock’n’roll newcomers Purple Dino are back in the game with their best endeavour to date! “And Now What?!” is the band’s sophomore full length album and it successfully combines a large palette of influences, varying from the glorious 90’s grunge rock scene and the late 90’s stoner rock movement to Clutch’s boogie / groovy rock’n’roll or even to the haunting -and sometimes bizzare- grooves of bands such as Tool. Being very active tour-wise as well as huge admirers of physical format (the album has already been released in transparent magenta and black LP), Purple Dino not only seem to be in a great shape, but having been scheduled to tour Europe extensively, also seem willing to take their effort to the next level, whatever it may take!… And then some!
“Purple Dino, are in control of their craft, and not the other way around. They command this material, and much to their credit, that
command doesn’t stop them in the slightest from sounding like they’re having a good time even in the record’s moodier stretches.” –
“Purple Dino 2nd effort contains 7 tracks of great Heavy’n’Roll, influenced by past & modern vibes, making it as a whole an interesting
mix.” – MoreFuzz.net
“Perhaps the band have taken the biggest creative risks with the album. As the album transforms into a heavier progressive sound that
you would expect from Tool and not a band such as Purple Dino.” – Outlaws of the Sun
“Every single track has something special to offer, contributing to an equal overall result of the highest quality. The material might be
diverse, but heavy rock remains its commonplace.” – Rockway.gr
