The Symphonic nature will appeal to all of those who like that style and many fans will find a lot to love about this epic.

This independent Greek project was started by John Galanakis in Athens in the summer of 2014 when he decided on a concept album that became 'Entropia' (loosely translated from Greek as 'Transformation'). The name of the project, "Quadrus", translates from Latin as "Hewn Stone".

Galanakis recruited Nikitas Mandolas (Bionic Origin/W.E.B.) on drums, Jon Soti (Floating Worlds, ex-Secret Illusion/Crusade Of Steel/Fallen Arise) on male vocals/growls, Alexandra Misailidou (who wrote the female lyrical parts and sang female vocals), Marios Konnaris on lead guitars (who also contributed some lyrics) and John Sotirakis on bass, while he himself handled all the song-writing, some lyrics, orchestration and rhythm guitar.

Galanakis also enlisted the help of Mandolas' Bionic Origin bandmate George Constantine Kratsas on guitars for 'The Alpha Origin' and Enemy Of Reality/Meden Agan Soprano Iliana Tsakiraki on 'Sense Of Matter'.

Obviously, this is another very ambitious project but the timescale has allowed Galanakis to take his time and get everything right to his satisfaction. 'Entropia' is a concept album that narrates the story of mankind and the endless circle of human interdependence with the universe! How it all began? How we fell? How we turned our positive vibes into dark matter against our own self? How our own hatred became one with us and slowly rotted us from the inside? What is the meaning of life? Is there any way for redemption? For those seeking these answers, Galanakis has woven the stories into this opus and left it to the individual listener to interpret them based on their own knowledge of the world.

All the various pieces are linked together, including the instrumental interlude 'Alternative Hypothesis', as they are awash with huge orchestration, cinematic landscapes, Progressive patterns and male and female Operatic vocals as well as growls that portray various characters within this smorgasbord of sound. Influences, mainly Symphonic, are dragged from all corners of the Metal spectrum.

As I said, hugely ambitious in nature, and at over an hour, very heavy going for the regular Hard Rock and Metal fan, but the Symphonic nature will appeal to all of those who like that style and many fans will find a lot to love about this epic. In that respect, it is exceptionally played and sung with a great production by Galanakis himself and the final mix afforded to guitarist Kratsas.
