Genre/Influences: Minimal-Electro, Electro-Wave, EBM, Experimental.

Format: Digital, CD, Vinyl.

Background/Info: Millions Of Dead Tourists is a Greek project releasing their third album. “Υγιείς” which means ‘healthy’ has been written and recorded during the lockdowns and reflects the dystopian situation.

Content: The work features 4 extended cuts which are characterized by repetitive structures with little variations. The sound stands for a mix between different genres but is mainly minimal. You’ll notice passages with Greek vocals.

+ + + : The repetitive structures create a transcendental effect. It works the best at the title track which has been accomplished with an EBM touch on top. The Greek vocals create an exotic and mysterious touch.

– – – : The opening song is less inspired so you’ve to be patient to discover the best cut of the work right afterwards.

Conclusion: This album has something original although I get the feeling there’s more potential hiding behind this project.

Best songs: “Υγιείς”, “Το Χ​έ​ρ​ι π​ο​υ Π​α​ί​ρ​ν​ε​ι”.

Rate: 7.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
