Bio

Greece is known for a lot of things: sunny weather, beautiful beaches, Syrtaki dance, feta cheese, the Acropolis. What it does not have in abundance, however, is southern hard rock bands. SoundtrucK have set out to change that: their brand new debut album, mastered by the studio legend George Marino, and their recent performance as an opening act for Lynyrd Skynyrd in Athens have certainly stirred the musical waters of their hometown and beyond.

SoundtrucK formed in late 2008, when founding members Nikos Melas (vocals), Vasilis Panagopoulos (lead guitar) and Alex Papalexiou (drums) decided to follow the musical path of southern hard rock, a relatively uncommon one in their hometown, Athens Greece. They were soon joined by George GB Mpountalis (rhythm guitar) and Dimitris Lykakis (bass guitar). Following a short period of rehearsals, the band started playing in clubs and venues all over the country, doing covers of some of the most influential names in rock music: AC/DC, ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others. They soon distinguished themselves for their performing prowess and the raw energy of their shows.

It was only a matter of time before the band started writing their own material, but it was not until the end of 2009 that the band contemplated songwriting more seriously. Influenced by their favourite artists and a diverse musical background, the band produced 9 tracks of what sounds like a contemporary mixture of hard rock and southern rock. In December 2010, the band started recordings for their debut self-titled album at NURV Studios in Athens, a process that was completed about 6 months later with the touch of a genius: the tracks were sent to Sterling Sound, NY, to be mastered by none other than George Marino himself.

The album was officially released on 18th June 2012, on the same day that SoundtrucK opened for the legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd in Athens. Since then, they have kept themselves busy arranging their next shows and working on new material for another album.

It’s a long way to the top, if you wanna rock’n’roll!
