Rock music?

Hey, guys. I was hoping if anyone knew of some Greek music artists? I generally like alternative, so that kind music would suit my tastes better? To give you an idea of what I like, in general though, I like bands such as Evanescence, Lacuna coil, Amaral, Mor ve otesi, MaNga, Supercell and even Linkin Park.

Your help is really appreciated. Thanks a ton! <3

There is no Greek-lyrics music that I know of that resembles the music style of the bands you mentioned. You could try Τρύπες, Ξύλινα Σπαθιά, Ενδελέχεια,Πυξ Λαξ and Υπόγεια Ρεύματα. They are the most well-known Greek rock bands.

Did you like any of it? ;)

Hm. A bit. But not a whole lot :(

By any chance, would you know of any pop-rock artists? If that makes sense? That could also work.

You mean something like that or this? Generally, Greek music produced now consists of pop, rock (like the one I sent in my previous comment) and folk/regional genres. So, some singers categorized as "mostly pop" singers may produce a pop-rock song, but it's difficult to name an artist that produces only pop-rock songs. It's very common for Greek singers to mix genres. What I sent above is the most close greek thing to pop-rock I know of. If that's what you are looking for, I can send some more. ;)

Wow. Thank you so much for your help. Yes, this kinda music works perfectly. In the mood I'm in right now, I liked "Thelo" more, however, I did like both.

Yes, that would be very helpful!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I couldn't reply to your last comment. You can try Ονιράμα and Μύρωνας Στρατής. If you like them, search those two more. That's the best I can give :P. Maybe there is more out there, but I don't listen to that kind of music, so that's what I know as a "passive" listener of it.
