Classic rock with prog influences, worth a listen.

Even prog is rooted in the blues, at some point...

Only one MySpace sample there but artistic hard-edged sound blow is very fascinating! Clap

Hello from Awkward Situations!
I'm John K (the bassist).
Here is some informations about the band

 The band was formed in Athens, Greece by Giannis (Drums) and Nikos (Guitar) in the late 2008 when they started jamming and creating their own tracks.
After a few months, at the early 2009, Kostas (Guitar/Vocals) joined the band too.
The line up was successfully completed during the summer of 2009 when Giannis (Bass) joined the band. At the early 2010 Christoula (female vocals) joined the band!

I woulk like to thank Angelo for helping with the forum and for the comment and DamoXt7942 for the comments too!

The three live vids that are currently available emedded here for convenience:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Rarely as useful as proper studio recordings, of course, but at least it gives us an idea of what sort music the band plays... Smile

The Live vids aren't really of sufficient quality soundwise to do your music justice, but the two myspace samples are very promising indeed. If the rest of the album is similar to this then I reckon you have a pretty decent chance of being accepted into the archives when it's finished and released. Maybe you'd fit into Heavy Prog, but more likely Crossover I would think, based on these two samples. Here's hoping for some more myspace samples from the band in the not-too-distant future. Thumbs Up
 
 
I notice there is also a band website under construction: http://www.awkward.gr/. Smile

Excellent song guys, great Heavy Prog/Rock with obvious PORCUPINE TREE influences.The new singer is great and the quality of the sound outstanding.This band deserves some promotion.
