Some months ago you released the “ΔΕΙΝΟN ΕΣΤΙ” album. Which are your feelings?
Greetings from Sparta Greece , thank you so much for that interview …
The main feeling , speaking personally , is mainly the pleasure that one more SOCIAL SCREAM full album spread it’s message to everyone listening out there .
What would you change now in this new album, if you had the opportunity?
Nothing . Everything came on time to be recorded and to be released once more .
Why did you name your new album “ΔΕΙΝΟΝ ΕΣΤΙ”? Where do the lyrics of the new
songs refer to?
The album is dedicated to all the fallen souls that passed away during the awakening era of 20220 – 2022 . This is the reason of the album‘s name , based on Ancient Greek Tragedy.

Trying to explore new ways of distributing our music , maybe with a more face to face attitude through live shows as always , plus our web pages , inviting our fans to find our music on Bandcamp and Itunes which is under the band’s control and only .
Which are your favorite tracks off the new album? Why?
I still can not name a favorite track because the way I see it , ΔΕΙΝΟΝ ΕΣΤΙ is a complete music story written under the terrible circumstances of that situation we experienced all this time . Maybe LUNA DARK track could be a recommendation of ΔΕΙΝΟΝ ΕΣΤΙ though …
I liked very much the album cover. Can you give me all the details?
Thank you . It’ s based on Greek Ancient Tragedy , so the character you see is NEMESIS , one of the Erinyes …
Giannis Stergiou is responsible for that great art cover and album’s booklet as well .
The sound production of the new album was not so satisfying, in my opinion, the
sound wasn’t very clear. What do you think about that?
You are the first with this opinion , so this is certainly a very objective matter .
We really love this production .
How is a Social Scream song composed?
Until now all music and lyrics come out from the same person when the time is right , when inspiration strikes .
How did the COVID-19 pandemic affected you as band and as individuals?
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, I guess … Everyone in the band faced the whole thing differently , and still does . Time will tell as the affects , still happen …
Your future plans? Maybe some live shows?
Yes , live shows and as much connection to people as it gets .
Your message to the fans!
Stay safe , enjoy every minute in life , live , love and …. STAY METAL !!!
