2008 – present (10 years)
Feos was a one-man band founded in April of 2008 by by 20-year old Iason Roumkos. The first 6-song EP, entitled "Katastasi", was recorded and self-produced by Iason Roumkos. It was later released online through the blogzine "Silence Is Also A Sound - The Post-Rock Community", in September of 2008. Iason Roumkos considers the release to be a concept album because the songs follow each other through sounds and harmonies and different moods and feelings. In August of 2009, an unreleased and exclusive Feos song was released on the Abridged Pause Recordings compilation "Diluvian Temperals".
The intention of Feos is to create an expression of Iasons life and how he experiences our environment. As life has got several faces Feos got them, too. That’s why the music is eclectic and doesn’t follow a linear route so that there always will be a variation but without losing its character. The first release contains sounds of Black Metal, Post Rock, Shoegaze, Trip Hop, Ambient and acoustic guitars. Feos is greek an means “God” and nearly all songs are titled also in greek. He hasn’t took this name because he is religious but because through Feos he is able to create a world with its own rules and ideal with topics like the destruction of the environment, our misdirected society and the banality and strength of existence. You see the world of Feos isn’t that far away from anyone’s reality. The future of this band is unclear. New songs are in progress."
