“I am extremely happy to be a part of the Season of Mist family and so excited for the release of my first album! I strongly feel this is going to be a very successful and productive cooperation between me and this label with a common goal: to deliver the best music we can to all of you out there! I would like to thank everyone at Season of Mist for all their support and for helping me with the release of my first album. It means a lot to me and I will make sure to work even harder for more great music for all of you!!”

Regarding ‘Invictus’ the drummer, who is regarded as one of the world’s best by his peers says the following:

“This solo project contains exactly what the word ‘solo’ describes: one musician writing all music and lyrics as well as performing all the instruments, while inviting some guests to join. At first I composed some songs in order to support my 2 drum DVDs, but thanks to the support and demand from all the fans out there it turned into a full album over time. I can honestly say, the only reason I have recorded this album is the fans asked for this to happen. I am happy that I did it and more excited than ever for the future of this project! I enjoyed recording it more than anything. I have got some great plans for my project. I want to get out there and play this album live as soon as possible too! I also had to pleasure to have some really important guests, which made this album even more special to me. I guarantee that this is only the beginning!!”

GEORGE KOLLIAS has previously released a teaser, which you can check out here:

Through his Facebook, GEORGE KOLLIAS has already revealed the art-work of ‘Invictus’, which can be viewed below.

GEORGE KOLLIAS is a world class touring drummer, who is also renowned for his drum clinics and teaching skills at LAB Music Education and the Modern Music School in Athens, Greece. He is also a member of the legendary US death metal act NILE and currently in studio.

Born in August 1977, he started at the age of ten as a guitar player and picked up the drum set at the age of twelve. George’s prowess as a composer showed up back in 1994 with his first death metal band EXTREMITY OBSESSION, where he serves as drummer and vocalist at the same time.

On his first instructional drum DVD ‘Intense Metal Drumming’. George started getting back into song writing mode. Some of his tracks were enthusiastically welcomed by the metal community. Over a million views on YouTube compelled him to compose more music for his second DVD ‘Intense Metal Drumming II’. Most of these songs were entirely performed by the Greek musician, who also used them in several drum clinics and some of the biggest percussion festivals around the globe. This created a very strong fan base who, which enthusiastically requested a full album.

In early 2014, GEORGE KOLLIAS went into studio to record his first full album, which he aptly named ‘Invictus’. Most of the songs were recorded in between the touring breaks of NILE. The album contains 11 tracks and 4 bonus songs as well as features of some of the best musicians on this planet delivering guest solos. Two amazing vocalists are making their appearance on two of the bonus tracks as well. More will soon be revealed.

In George’s own words: “This album is not only about drums, although I made sure that my drumming is absolutely out of control. It is all about music and that is it. I have made my solo record with a lot of passion and dedication for all the fans out there and I feel blessed to have some of my best friends appearing as guests on it. ‘Invictus’ turned out exactly in the way as I had wished for and I can assure you that this is just the beginning! There are a lot of great things to come!”
