 Southern Gothic Metal Band

A couple of days later the lead guitarist Manos Gonidakis entered the band when the frontman/bass player of Blossom Death asked him to come over his house and "try to play" the song I will remain from the American Southern Rock Band Hogjaw, that song was the reason that connected the members together to officially form the band.


“Mistaken” is the lead single on this 3 song EP. Kostas and Marita do the singing in this group and they sing well together; this is a good thing as they are married so this makes the BLOSSOM DEATH  band a real family affair. “All That I Want” leans into their Evanescence stylings while serving up some Goth undertones. “All That I Want” also features slide guitar while Kostas and Marita co-lead again on the vocals. “Pad Out” brings a driving beat, some hot guitar playing and Marita’s lovely vocalizing. At under 13 minutes this release ‘MISTAKEN’ just flys right by.
