Tales from Different Worlds

Hello friends! Some time ago I took part in 2 compilation CDs with the Dol Theeta song “Mud” (taken from the upcoming Dol Theeta full album “The Universe Expands”). The first compilation was for a Metal Maniacs sampler CD for their June/July 2008 issue. The second one was the “Tales from Different Worlds” CD released by the great French webzine Heavylaw featuring 80 minutes of melodic metal from 18 bands. I have a few copies of the “Tales from Different Worlds” CD for sale and since they are limited I placed them in the electronicARTmetal Records MINI shop. Have...

The Kings of Space Metal Opera

Hello friends, Thanasis here. First of all I’d like to wish you all the best for the New Year. May it be a creative, peaceful and healthy year for us all. I feel that I must apologize since my initial estimate and promise to release Dol Theeta in 2007 got blown away by life’s beautiful and frustrating way of always messing up with your plans and targets. The reasons for my delay are that we suffered a big studio crash on October-November 2007 which threatened to destroy some recorded material. Thankfully after weeks of painful restoration methods we salvaged...

Avantgarde-Metal

I would like to present you with a great new webzine – community I have recently discovered (or was discovered by – to be more correct). It is the Avantgarde Metal community at www.avantgarde-metal.com and it is the perfect haven for all of us wanting our metal a little “different” than the rest. To quote the website itself: “This website is dedicated to the pioneers of metal, to those bands and musicians who incorporate new and innovative elements into metal, who break conventions, tear down walls, violate borders. They build new worlds. They surprise.” “Avantgarde-Metal was created to provide...

Army is over! Plans for the future

Hail Dolammadians and space freaks out there! I am very pleased to announce that after 12 months, my army time is finally over and I am back into my “civilian” life. It has been a year full of new experiences. Most were strange, discomforting and illogical but the only thing that made them worthwhile was that I have met great new friends to share them with. I would like to introduce probably the greatest friend that I met. His name is Harry Kalogirou and apart from a great guy (and the photographer of our now obsolete army shoes) he...

Distributors, New T-shirts on the way and current status.

Greetings fellow space travelers! I know it’s been long since our last update of this site and I would like to apologize for that. As some of you may already know, I am serving my time in the Greek army for the last 8 months. It is something obligatory here in Greece and it lasts for 12 months so thankfully I am getting closer to the end. Moreover, our trusted webmaster Stamatis Kritikos is preparing a big relocation to Athens and has been awfully busy lately. That’s why I am kind of thinking to make this site more personalized...
