The band's history has started at the summer of 2009.First of all, the band started off by playing greek songs, but two weeks before the first concert they decide to be an alternative metal band.
You are a new band in the metal scene.What was the motive to create the band?
Hello,we are NOTON,a band from Kavala,a city in Northen Greece.The reason for the creation of the band was to have some good time with friends playing some music,and of course to perform live at concerts.
Which are the band members and how each one of you take part in the music composition?
We have changed band members many times,but now we are stronger than ever!Members are Pavlos(Vocals) Thanasis(Guitars) Marios(Guitars) Stelios(Bass) Dimitris(Drumms).In order to create a song,we must have some basic ideas.If any of the members has any idea,he comes up with it at the studio and when many ideas are gathered,we combine them,and sometimes change them,and we complete the song!As simple as that!Lyrics are written mainly by Pavlos,but others contribute sometimes.
You start with greek lyrics and then you change.What happen?
We started with Greek lyrics because our initial singer's voice favoured to greek style vocals,and the band line-up was alot different.We changed to english lyrics when we changed singer.Also,we discovered that songs with english lyrics were closer to what we listened and liked in music gennerally.
You have finished some songs.Are there any plans for a release?
We made this music for ourselves basically,and our friends aswell.But if any kind of opportunity for a release comes around,we will surely consider it!
Describe me your music?
We play Alternative-Hardcore Metal,which is a mix of species based on Metal music.The melody is the most important element in this kind of music that we play,combined with riffs influenced by heavy metal music.
What is the feeling on the stage when you play live your songs in front of a crowd?
The feeling on stage is unique,fucking amazing...When we see the crowd singing along with us,our lyrics,this is simply unbelievable...This feeling that we get through the crowd fills us with energy to continue our work,not only on stage,but off the stage aswell,by writing more music.
What inspires you?
