"When Fables have a Bitter Taste"

"Mute Tale/art of simplicity - 27/2/2017"

And on last friday i had the chance to listen to their songs live. I must admit i enjoyed their performance. You should also check out their last album simply because it’s really good. I want to say once again that Chris has some serious vocal skills.[…] - Tzertzelos

In an effort to play the music they wanted to listen to, balancing both “simplicity” and “art”, art of simplicity were formed in 2003. Merging different kinds of music on a metal canvas, aos have received much appreciation around the world and have established themselves as a very promising act. The band has been influenced by a vast variety of innovative music genres and groups, creating a diverse and intense atmosphere through social and psychological themed lyrics.
