Chris Siatiris (guitars) created the “Mastermind Chaos” band (symphonic/melodic/epic/power metal) in the summer of 2017 in the city of Ioannina (Greece).
From the summer of 2019 Chris is recording (single by single) the 1st album called “The Path to River Styx”. Great news coming soon!!
DivUrge were formed in Greece, August 2016 by guitarists Dimitris
Stasinos (Clairvoyant) and Manos “InfuseR” Psarros (Leprosy, ex
Obsecration). In September 2016 they started composing and
recording songs and in December 2017 they published their debut full
length album “Point Of No Return”.
In October 2016, lead singer Phil William Roussos (My Inferno, Sense of
Insanity, ex Simplefast) joined the band and Nicolas Loukopoulos
(Shatter, ex Seasons A.C.) sat on the throne (drums). In August –
September 2017, Zoe Mouratoglou (Mood Swings) recorded the
female vocals as a guest and on September 2018 became a
permanent member. Dimitris Giannakopoulos (Sunlight, Diefied)
recorded the high pitched power vocals, Elias Zounis (Moral
Corruption) the low growl vocals and Revekka Tsou (Nochnoy Dozor,
Divine Dissection) the female vocals on the bonus track of the album.
Jim Ramses (ex Chrysilia, Keepers Of Jericho, ex On Thorns I Lay),
recorded the bass lines and was a permanent member of the band till
November 2019 when Constantinos Voulgaris took over his tough part.
In November 2017 and during the mixing/mastering period, a new
addition to the list of the amazing musicians that have contributed to
the creation of this album was made! So, after we decided that a few
last minute coloring touches are for the best, Alina Marini was invited to
record the percussions doing an amazing job!
In October 2019 and due to the special nature of Dimitris’s job that
requires him to be absent for a long period of time, guitarist George
Haniotakis (The Silent Rage, Fatalism) helped the band with their
appearance in Rainfest Festival that took place in BUMS Blackbird.
From that point on it was commonly decided that George was yet
another member of the band covering Dimitris’s place when he’s away
for work…and not only!
Their musical style is moving around the Power Metal genre with
Symphonic / Orchestral coloring of their own personal touch. Power
riffs, melodic lead passes, angry djent breakdowns, essential solos with
dreamlike dual solos and a truly imposing rhythm section, harmoniously
meet up with the male power / growls / screams and the female jazzyoperatic vocals.
“Point Of No Return” is their mind blowing debut full length album with
a total of 11 songs including the intro, outro and a cover of Sandra’s
Maria Magdalena as a bonus track. Clocking in at 51 mins, “Point Of No
Return” will leave the listener hungry for more, daring them to replay
the album again and again discovering more amazing things every
Production, Mixing and Mastering were done by Dionysis
Christodoulatos (Sorrowful Angels, ex Foray Between Ocean, CFN
Recordings Studio) and DivUrge, while the band’s artwork is created
and designed by Manos “Infuser” Psarros (MPs Design).
Open your mind, unleash your full power and enjoy the ride!
Rock on, brothers and sisters of the world!

In January of 2017 the band recorded their second album titled ” Time For Retribution. ” Most heavy and less lyrical compared to their previous album:” Strangers Among Strangers’’.Recurring themes of the songs are injustice,betrayal,deception.Main theme is the conclusion that

On January 1995 “Sorrows Path”, the band’s first demo came out, followed by a tape released in May 1996 simply entitled “Promo 96.
During the following year, Sorrows Path entered the studio to record some new material which was never released. Kostas Salomidis, was almost paralyzed because of a neck problem which was caused a few years ago by a devastating motorcycle accident, so had the band a 7 year break! By the end of 2005 the band was back in action in order to catch up with the time lost all these years. On April 2006 Sorrows Path hit the stage after 9 whole years as the opening act for the Texan masters of Doom Metal, Solitude Aeturnus.On the very next day the remasters were out from Eat Metal Records entitled “Resurrection”.
With the entrance of 2009, a second guitarist joined Sorrows Path in order to fulfil the band’s vision for a solid and heavier sound.
Sorrows Path agreed with the German label Rock it Up Records to release “The Rough Path of Nihilism” as CD on Oct. 2010.
2011 was a year of very positive worldwide feedback for Sorrows Path album and their unique mixture of doom metal with power, gothic, progressive and oriental elements! The band performed live with many important bands in lives and festivals in Greece and abroad. Very soon the band booked again Fragile Studios in Athens and they began the recordings of their second full length with producer Vangelis Yalamas. They were very pleased that the famous metal star Snowy Shaw (Memento Mori, King Diamond and more) liked their stuff and accepted to be guest vocalist on this album, along with the doom guitar master Edgar Rivera (ex-Solitude Aeturnus). The established logo artist Christophe Szpajdel also was inspired by the band and honoured them to create their new logo! By the end of March 2013, the recordings, mixing and mastering of the album plus a cover for Black Sabbath classic “Killing Yourself to Live” (released by Greek Metal Hammer magazine) were completed. In September 2014 the second album was out, named “Doom Philosophy” first time via Iron Shield records!
After the release, the band performed live in a lot of concerts and festivals! On September 22, 2017 released the new album “Touching Infinity”, again via German Iron Shield Records! Recorded, mixed and mastered by Vangelis Yalamas at Fragile Studio. The artwork was done by Nikos Marko (ROTTING CHRIST) and the band also featuring Thiago Oliveira (WARREL DANE) as a guest guitarist.
