Agnosia

Agnosia is a progressive metal band which was formed in Piraeus during 2003.The band released their debut 4 track demo which was entitled ‘The Inner Conflict’ in April 2004. The aim of the demo was to help the band entering the metal underground. The response was really optimistic. Respected metal magazines and fanzines such as Metal Hammer GR (8/10), Metalzone Magazine GR (8.5/10) Metaleagle.com (7/10), The Metal Observer (7.5/10), Shapelesszine (8/10), Metalcoven.de (84%), Barikada.com (8/10), Powermetal.de had expressed their enthusiasm for the ‘new hope’ of the Greek Progressive Metal Scene.
During the year 2005 various line-up changes were occurred and agnosia started to work for their upcoming debut release. The recordings of the debut album started in the year 2007. The album recording sessions took place in Athens and Piraeus Greece (M.I. and Noise Factory Studios respectively). The album was mastered by Mika Jussila at the infamous Finnvox studios in Helsinki, Finland (Nightwish, Amorphis, Horizon’s End etc.). Trace Decay, received excellent reviews (Metal Hammer GR 8/10, Rock Hard GR 8.5/10, Metalzone.gr 90%, Greekrebels.gr 8/10, Underground-Empire.com 14/20, Hard n Heavy 3.5/5, Behind the Veil 8/10) guiding the band to the next level. Among the interest of the Metal magazines and fanzines, Radio Stations (Sto Kokkino fm, Aigaio Live fm, Kastoria Fm, 902 fm etc) and TV shows (Art Uber Alles) contacted Agnosia in order to ask them participating in various shows.
The band was the a support act of the progressive US metal masters Fates Warning in their reunion ‘Parallels Live’ anniversary show in Thessaloniki Greece as well they participated to the Reunion show of the US legends Psychotic Waltz in the same city!
The new era for Agnosia has already begun. These days, the band is back again in studio, mixing the new mini album which is entitled 'A blot on the landscape'. A Greek tour and some dates outside Greece will be announced very soon along with the release date of the album. So, stay tuned!
