Shadowmass – Interview

Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (

PD: What type of artist are you?

SH: Thrash metal, the evil part of it


PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.

SH: SHADOWMASS (ex-FADOM) is a newly formed band from Athens. Having a lot of black and

death metal elements added in FADOM’S traditional thrash metal style, SHADOWMASS are

about to release their debut album in December 2019 through Soman records.

Stamatis Syrakos – Guitars, Vocals

Constantine – Bass guitar

Maelstrom – Drums


PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?

SH: Slayer, Mercyful fate, Sepultura, Venom,  Mayhem, Darkthrone, Dissection and so many more…We also like horror movies, occult books and alcohol


PD: What are your dreams and goals?

SH: For now, we want to tour as much as possible to promote our debut album.


PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?

SH: The main structure of a song usually comes from the singer/guitarist (Stam) and after that Constantine(bass guitar) and Maelstrom(drums) are taking care of the rhythm section so you can bang your head till you bleed.


PD: How do you promote your band and shows?

SH: Social media are the easiest way nowdays, videos photos and everything posted on them are good for promotional reasons. However, we are giving our best on stage (and during the recording sessions) because we believe that in the end that’s what matters the most.


PD: What do you think about downloading music online?

SH: As music listeners and heavy metal fans, we support the analog format of music (LPs, CDs etc).  Downloading is fast and easy but opening and listening to a new record you just bought is priceless.


PD: So what are you working on at the moment?

SH: We are booking shows. As many as we can. We are also constantly composing new songs so we are going to hit the studio again sooner than expected.


PD: Tell us about your next shows and why we should be there.

SH: Our first show will take place in our hometown, Athens, in December 20th You should be here if you are a fan of the extreme. We are also supporting Suicidal Angels in our next show, a pure thrash metal holocaust.
