About Grip on Reality 

How do get to know someone? You can stalk their socials but if you want to bypass small talk and get to know your favorite bands and artists beyond the surface level, this is the place to be. Sometimes the oddball questions allow you to learn the most interesting things about a person and see the varied, unique, and special qualities of a creative mind. Shall we?

Welcome to Metal Digest’s ABOUT. column

Please introduce the band in the most spontaneous way.

We are a 4-man band from Athens and our music is about having hope in a world full of crap

What’s something an outsider wouldn’t know about your band?

An outsider wouldn’t know about our fantastic new merch. Check it out on our Bandcamp profile.

What’s the career highlight you’re most proud of?

Our latest video clip (Voluspa). Shooting that, was challenging, fun and the most professional thing we’ve ever done.

Lyrics that stuck with you?

If we are talking about songs from other artists, they’re too many.

From our own songs would be

“I rip this womb asunder, reach for the light
my lungs fill with air, my first breath of light
This time I will not fail, this time I find my place
I shall not back down, shall not be erased”

What’s the phone app you use most?

Google maps… Oh, you mean about the band?! Instagram, Bandcamp and Youtube.

What’s your favorite way to spend a day off?

What’s a “day off”?

Are you more of a “play music to live” or a “live to play music” type of person?

We live in order to play music, so we can live. It’s a feedback loop.

How would your 10-year-old self react to what you do now?

Less than half of what I’d hoped for…

What career advice would you give to young musicians in the rock and metal industry?

You will never feel ready, just start playing live.

If you could do it all over again, would you pursue the same career in music?

Hell yeah!!!
