For years now, Meden Agan has been a well-respected band in the Greek metal community. Their beginning was bombastic, however, what followed made them one of the cornerstones of the Greek female fronted metal scene. And now their new work bears the title “My Name is Katherine”. This new full-length release is a concept album, based on the homonymous short novel by the singer of the band, Dimitra Panariti. And you know, it is a very interesting story, as I discover, listening to the lyrics and the music. In “My Name is Katherine” we shall find a real treasure trove, full of music jewels, a priceless selection of quality heavy metal music. To be more specific, the album has a main melodic power metal character, with many progressive, symphonic and dark/gothic metal elements. Meden Agan has created a real masterpiece, which is based on really top class music ideas. Once you trust Meden Agan’s new opus, you will get lost in a beautiful labyrinth of haunting melodies, unparalleled vocal lines, edgy riffs, impressive guitar solos, elegant keyboards and a heavy, compact rhythm section, the result of a flawless sound production! “My Name is Katherine” is like a heavy metal movie, a music tragedy, where Dimitra Panariti is starring and guitarist Diman Koutsogiannopoulos is the main director. A dark, passionate play, which will mesmerize you with its beauty, grace and finesse! There is no doubt that Meden Agan has progressed very much musically, and this new record is their most mature and complete work until now. Delve into the world of Meden Agan and you will forget about the rest!
