Specifically, the Athenian extreme Metallers participated in the Craneo Online Metal Fest where, among other 21 bands from around the world, they performed their most famous tracks from their first album, as well as the bonus track “Into the Uknown”.The Livestream aired on Craneo Fest’s Official Channel, and was filmed at Zero Gravity Studios by Jim Georgosopoulos, with the sound / mixing be taken care of by Terry Nikas. Gentihaa are currently working on their 2nd album which is about to be released on late 2021.

Live from Quarantine Session – Gentihaa from Greece

Gentihaa are about to start recording their 2nd album!

After a very successful debut back in September 19 ‘with “Reverse Entropy” gathering triumphant reviews across the globe, such as amongst many, BURRN! magazine of Japan, but also with some very impressive live performances with DIMMU BORGIR and SEPTICFLESH, the extreme metallers from Athens are about to enter the studio during  2020 summer period for the recordings of their 2nd Studio full length album. This time, Valgran (George Giannopoulos) and Ros Dracul (Spyros Roditis) unite their compositional and guitar shredding skills, promising us a highly aggressive result which, as they claim, leaves Reverse Entropy far behind. The concept of the album has been taken over once again by Andre Boutos, which however the band keeps in absolute secrecy, as well as the number of the tracks. 

The recordings of the album will take place in the brand new studio of Bob Katsionis – Sound Symmetry Studio. 

A new unreleased track has just been released by GENTIHAA, entitled “INTO THE UNKNOWN”, which they present it through an official live video! The video was shot last November  in Temple-Athens, under the production of Headbangers and TheVault9, where our Athenian band had presented their entire debut album entitled “Reverse Entropy”.

In the last months of 2019 Gentihaa made a dynamic debut at the live stages , performing as a special guest in Athens and Thessaloniki for DIMMU BORGIR.  It was followed by the live performance at Temple of Athens where they performed their entire debut album “Reverse Entropy” on stage as headliners  and closed this decade by performing at Metal Hammer Greece’s 35th anniversary party,  where they shared the stage with SEPTICFLESH, Enemy Of Reality and Aetherian.

It is with great pleasure to announce the signing of a new and promising Dark Metal band from Athens, Greece…GENTIHAA!

The band, formerly known as “Enochian” and then reformed to “Collision Zero” is the brainchild of guitarist/composer George “Valgran” Giannopoulos who started working with producer Bob Katsionis back in 2009 to record two EP’s and made some note-worthy live shows before they went on a long hiatus.

In 2017, Valgran reformed the band with the addition of talented singer Andre Boutos (Sonata Antarctica/Project Theory) who gave a more melodic and diverse aspect to his evil riffs, as well as drummer Merenhor (Diablery), bassist Beheaal (Memorain) and lead guitarist Ros Dracul.

The complete line-up entered Sound Symmetry Studio for once more to record their debut album “Reverse Entropy”.

Produced by Bob Katsionis at Sound symmetry Studio and mixed/mastered by Fotis Benardo at Devasoundz Studio “Reverse Entropy” blurs the lines between extreme and melodic metal, balancing their dark, razor-edge riffing and brutal vocals with symphonic orchestral arrangements, complex instrumental sections and atmospheric parts, giving a final result very difficult to be filed under any traditional genre of Heavy Metal music.

Lyrically, André, is dealing with a story found in a well-hidden corner of the Web, dealing with 8 pills that give different “super powers” to 8 random individuals,leading them to the distant future just to find out that the Earth is destroyed, and then all of them trying to reverse the entropy with the help of the Master (Alpha) through the guidance of The One (Singularity).

Track listing:

Serum
Empathy
Vision
Metamorphosis
Alpha
Beyond
Command*
Mastery
Singularity*

*Guest singer on “Command” and “Singularity” is Tom Englund, the voice of Swedish dark metal masters, Evergrey.

Keyboards are performed/arranged by Bob Katsionis.

The artwork is hand crafted by master designer Vaggelis Petikas/Revolver Design (Grand Magus, Nightrage, SixForNine, Nightstalker etc)

“Reverse Entropy” will be available only through the band’s Bandcamp page in both digital and CD format on September 23rd before it hits the official web stores and streaming services.

Τhe Band performed with a great success as a Special Guest, for Dimmu Borgir 2 Live shows in Greece in Sept 2019
