Athens-based artist Aggelos Baltas is paying homage to his homeland with his project Anatolian Weapons. This time making a home on Beats In Space Records, he brings together the EBM and krautkrock influences he employs under his Dream Weapons and Fantastikoi Hxoi monikers with the lamenting tones and percussion of Greek folk.
The LP became a reality after Baltas reached out to Greek folk singer and musician Seirios Savvaidis, having previously heard his music through a friend. Savvaidis provided the stems of the songs which Baltas then deconstructed, augmenting parts and sometimes merging these with his own recordings. On today’s premiere, the hypnotic psychedelic drone of ‘Ofiodaimon’ is offset by Savvaidis’ stirring vocals and traditional instrumentation ready to transport you to a far off land.
To The Mother Of Gods will be released on 14th June via Beats In Space.
