“Filthy Dogs of Metal” Interview

On 24th of May we gave an interview for Filthy Dogs of Metal. Here is a small part of it…

Welcome to the FILTHY DOGS OF METAL Webzine.
Tell us a few things about GRAYWITCH (Members, Starting Year etc).
Hi Stavros. Thank you for this interview opportunity. Greetings to all your readers 🙂
Graywitch started back in fall of 2018 by Spyros on guitars & Dino on vocals, in Nicosia, Cyprus. Along with other musicians we began by playing the music we love, Heavy Metal, some classic covers and in the way a couple of originals started shaping. Aris joined on bass, about a year later and our latest additions during 2020 were John on guitars and Thomas on Drums. This is our current stable line up for 1+ years and we are sure it will last for many – maaaaaany years as we all share the same passion.

You are going to release your album ”Rise of the Witch”. Tell us a few things about this project.
In 2019, one fine and for sure hot evening in Cyprus, the Graywitch members sat around a table to talk about our future and decided to form a full-length album. Spyros and Dino had already a few pre-recorded tracks, so we carefully listened to ALL of them and handpicked those which we liked most and made sense as a whole. We wanted a versatile but solid album. Something that we’d like to slide in the CD player, crank up the volume and make us happy. Of course, you should understand by now that it takes a lot of effort, time etc. to finalize all tracks, get the sound that you wanted while composing, find the right partners that can understand our vision and put together what we have dreamt of. Fortunately for us Chris Zabaras put together all his talent to create the front and back cover of the album and Marios Tsingerliotis (Psyclone Artcore) did the booklet and general design arrangement of what you see on the CD. For sure, we wouldn’t be able to make it without the patience and hard work of George Stournaras (Infected Studios) on the mix, mastering and production. For everyone out there reading this, listen to your sound engineer 😉

Label or DIY and why?
Well, a short answer is both. Our point of view is that you do need a label. Labels take care of a lot of important things, like the CD printing factory…

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.

Rating: 9/10 / Country: Greece


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!

Rating: 9/10 / Country: Portugal

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.

Country: United Kingdom

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.

Rating: 7/10 / Country: Greece

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.
