Contrabass player Charis Pazaroulas (ex-OSTROBOTHNIAN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA) very soon joined forces and sharing the same vision with George . A unique element of Stone Cold Dead debut album is that three extraordinary drummers became part of the recording line-up, each in a different triad . George Kollias (NILE),Yannis Stavropoulos (NUKeLEUS) and Dimitrios Dorian-Vorskaath (ZEMIAL) gave their own special mark on STONE COLD DEAD is debut album entitled “Lava Flows”. STONE COLD DEAD’s distinctive sound is an amalgamation of extreme groove metal with rock and blues influences using some unique sonic elements such as bowed contrabass along with baritone guitars and 5-string bass. The vocal style ranges from melodic death growls to clean vocals -which were handled also by George -, balanced to achieve an aggressive yet melodic effect. “Lava Flows” is produced and engineered by George Bokos and will be released later this Year.
