Bio

Graywitch is a heavy metal band based in Thessaloniki, Greece. It was formed in Nicosia, Cyprus in mid-October 2018 by Greek and Cypriot heavy metal enthusiasts.

The band’s musical influences span from classic heavy to speed, power and thrash metal. Some bands that inspired Graywitch include classics Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, more hard rock stuff like Whitesnake and Motorhead, extend to power metallers Helloween, Gamma Ray, Running Wild, and even reach a more aggressive musical thrashy style.

Their lyrical themes take inspiration from folklore tales, historical events, and everyday issues dealt in life.

In Summer 2020 they hit the Infected Studios to record their debut album. The album was ready in February 2021, leading to a release deal with Sleaszy Riders Records on Jun 4th 2021.

After numerous shows locally and abroad, on 29th of December 2023, they released their first single “God of War“, the first track featuring singer George Papadopoulos. “God of War” is the forerunner of their second album “Children of Gods“, released by Sleaszy Rider on February 2nd, 2024.

Reviews

Epic heavy metal flows in the new album and you can see this from the intro of the album “Overture To Olympus” that could easily adorn an epic series or movie, even a documentary. The album's flagship is at number eight with wonderful composition and poetic aura. The aggressive "God of War" is coming to put us on the path of tension. Sharp notes, fighting rhythms and high lyrical voice notes. An excellent combination.

The melodies are a strong point of the album. Everything sounds crystal clear, like how it should be ... This album makes you beg for more! If you are a fan of bands like Helloween and Blind Guardian, and/or a mythology freak, do not miss it!

There are hot axe solos, commanding vocals, orchestral nuances and a general feel of serious metal being played, and with nary a flake of cheese in sight... it’s good to see bands evolve positively and I sense that if they stick to their weapons then Graywitch may find a new fan base and do well on the festival circuit.

Metal Forces Magazine

Yes, it’s true: GRAYWITCH evolved and expanded in the best way possible, bringing out a classy, compact album, so enjoyable to listen to from start to finish! I dare to say that they can now be counted among the great Hellenic epic metal forces.

Rock Da Vinci

Θεσπέσιο! Μόνο έτσι μπορεί να χαρακτηριστεί το ντεμπούτο των εκ Θεσσαλονίκης ορμώμενων Graywitch, το οποίο ακολουθεί τις επιτυχημένες διδαχές του περήφανου γερμανικού heavy/power (ιδίως Running Wild, Hellowen)

Rating: 8/10 / Country: Greece

Metal Hammer Greece

You can hear that they love the 80's and this music flows straight from their hearts. It is also worth praising the singer Dino Nassis, who has a charismatic voice that may not be overwhelming with aggression, but with an interesting manner and hard rock claw.

Rating: 8.5/10 / Country: Poland

Power Metal Warrior

Most of them have sweet touches of Speed Metal and primitive Power Metal in the likes of early Helloween, Savatage or Queensrÿche. These influences seem to be combined with early Iron Maiden and Manowar vibes to deliver this album of pure old-school bliss.

Rating: 9/10 / Country: Spain

Bathory Metal Digital Magazine

Οι GRAYWITCH έχουν στο ντεμπούτο τους μια ποικιλία συνθέσεων που θυμίζει τις κυκλοφορίες των μεγάλων 80’ς συγκροτημάτων κι αυτό είναι που κάνει την όλη κυκλοφορία απολαυστική και σε κανένα σημείο κουραστική ή αδιάφορη.
