Greek modern metal act Alphastate signed on with Sliptrick Records for the band's upcoming sophomore album "The Grind," which is scheduled for release in 2018.
Alphastate started in 2014 as a personal project for Pete Breaker (Guitars). In 2015, the band’s line up was completed with Manos Xanthakis (Vocals), Dimitris Tsounakas (Bass) and Fivos Andriopoulos (Drums).
The band wanted to combine modern metal with 80’s and 90’s influences such us Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Pantera, Nevermore, etc, to create a very personal and extreme style with no boundaries. "Out Of The Black," the group's first album, was released in 2015 and garnered excellent and positive press globally. After playing numerous live shows in Greece from 2015 until now, Alphastate continues to evolve with the second album "The Grind."
More information on the album is expected soon.
