Biography

Odes of Ecstasy is a Greek gothic metal band formed in November 1993 by Dimitris Bikos and Joseph Nikou. In 1994, Dimitris Panayiotidis joined the band on guitar, and in December 1995 they released a promo tape containing one song, “Theogony.”

In the summer of 1996 they recorded their first demo, Atheistic Emotions, which featured vocals by Christina Maniati. The demo includes three atmospheric symphonic death metal songs, a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid (song),” and an ambient tune with only female vocals, keyboards, and electric guitars. The specific release was announced as the “Promo of the Month by the Greek Metal Hammer magazine. Following the release of the demo, Dimitris Panayiotidis left the band for military service and was replaced by Nikos Baltas.

In 1997, they released a single-song promo entitled Words of Insanity, which gave them the opportunity to sign with the American label The End Records, which released their first official album, Embossed Dream in Four Acts. The sound of this album is best characterized as death metal featuring brutal male and operatic female vocals, and influences from classical music. The second release of the band came in 2000, Deceitful Melody.
