Arxi tou telous (Beginning of the end) - Thorivos (noise)

This band has nothing to do with the 3 piece crust group beginning of the end from uk...
Arxi tou telous (Beginning of the end in english) is a four piece act from athens, greece...
After making some important member changes (bassist and drummer) these guys started  to take their selfs more seriously, and the mini greek tour with usa's anarcho crust-punks Witch hunt is a proof i think..
As you imagine the name is borrowed by the almighty Amebix, and yes indeed these guys you can say that have some later amebix influences, mainly in the battle hymn drum hitting (i think). As it's perfectly clear, the main songwriting was made by the guitarist and mastermind of the band K. A lot of "weird" killing joke's guitars mixed with huge fugazi guitar parts more or less (red medicine era), even some post rock long time "fillers". The bass lines are solid (from the good friend and classmate P.) and clear enough, so you can understand what the hell is happening... The only thing that i don't like is the vocals that is a little bit poetic and clear and i think that doesn't match so good, but then that's my opinion, i guess i would prefer it more screaming...
This is a self release and i think is already out so check it out and buy it to help the band make more great music... I had stolen this rip from greek punk blog so cheers to them
