BARBARIC EPIC METAL FROM GREECE!!!

AMAZING GUITARS + MOST OF ALL REAL AUTHENTIC EPIC METAL SONGS!!!

VOCALS IN STYLE OF IRONSWORD + JOTENHEIM!!

MANILLA ROAD (out of the abyss + mystification ), OMEN, IRONSWORD, JOTENHEIM, MANOWAR, AIRGED LAMH, BLIND GUARDIAN, SKYCLAD, ETC...

VALIDOR was formed in Athens, back in 2005 by songwriter, guitarist and lead vocalist Odi “Thunderer”. The original name of the band was EPIC STORM under which their first demos were recorded.

In 2008 after a line-up change and the addition of guitarist Nick Fra, the band changed the name to VALIDOR.

Next year, the band with two new members, bassist Chris Bizoulas and drummer Apollo Giannoulis, entered "Sound Symmetry Studios" to record their debut album entitled “IN BLOOD, IN BATTLE” that released through Eat Metal Records. During the recordings, Nick departed from the band and was replaced by Bob Katsionis as guest musician (FIREWIND, SEPTIC FLESH, NIGHTFALL, OUTLOUD, CASUS BELLI, STAR QUEEN, IMAGINERY, SOLO).

The sound of VALIDOR is comprised of thrash and epic metal elements, constant rhythm changes, pummeling guitar riffs and fast and diverse vocals.

The lyrical themes are influenced by fantasy heroes like Robert. E. Howard’s "Conan", Michael Moorcock’s "Elric of Melnibone" and Stephen King’s "Dark Tower", as well as tales of ancient battles and pirates.

Meanwhile they gained a good status in underground Heavy Metal community with many die hard fans!

In May, 2012, Odi and his fellows, entered again the studio in order to record their new opus, ”THE DAWN OF THE AVENGER”! In between their tracks they decided to involve a cover in Manilla Road’s “HOUR OF THE DRAGON” just to show their dedication!

Odi made the production of the album along with Bob Katsionis. He also had a great collaboration with the famous artist Miguel Serrano, he was responsible for the cover artwork.

From now on VALIDOR are going to be one man band with Odi Thunderer on the bass guitar, vocals and lead-rhythm guitars having only session musicians to accomplish the album! “DAWN OF THE AVENGER” is out, and once again seems that they show us the WAY OF STEEL!

Line Up:

Odi ”Thunderer” (all vocals, guitars)

Guest Musicians:

Bob Katsionis (guitars, keybords)

Alexander “Mordor” (bass)

John B. “Valdar” (drums)
