INK formed in august of 1999 in Alexandroupolis when long time friends Savas Karabalasis(guitars,samples,producer) and Kostas Apostolopoulos(lead guitar) were recording some new songs in Savas Home Studio,they were searching for a guy with a good voice and Kostas thought that he knew one.So he brought Chris Tsantalis(vocals)who was obsessed with seattle vocalists.In about a week they had 3 songs which reminded a lot of bands Alice in chains,Depeche Mode,The Doors.This primal demo got some very good reviews from greek magazines but it was nothing really special.Everyone was in diffirent places so they got back together in 2002 when Chris returned after a very long TRIP in bulgaria.They started immidiately to record their first complete demo which named NEW DAY.A lethal mix of heavy guitars,psychedelic melodies and soulfull vocals.The influences are the main reason behind their unique sound.
Imagine a cross between TOOL,ALICE IN CHAINS,DEFTONES.PERFECT CIRCLE,SOOUNDGARDEN and you re nearly there.
2004 finds INK with some new members in the city of SALONICA.
John Hatzipapas(bass),Chronis Margiolis(drums),Panos Ginis(guitar).
They re bulding a fan base with their powerfull live shows in local clubs,new songs are on the way,and NEW DAY is one of the surprises for SALONICA’S rock fans.
In 2004 INK are playing alot of shows and they re supporting bands like MY EXUSE,TESTUBE,RAINING PLEASURE,MIKRO.But trademark is their unique unplugged shows in places like SILVER DOLLAR and CARPE DIEM.
