In August of 2013, Mike Pougounas, singer of New Zero God, came up with the idea of uniting the Greek underground rock scene.
The first thing he did was to ask fifteen random Greek bands to join in a free digital download compilation. That same day, fifteen bands signed up to take part and the compilation was posted to Bandcamp on September 12, 2013.
The idea was for the compilation to be circulated for free in order to provide information about the existing Greek underground rock scene. Due to the financial crisis of the country there simply have been no means for the underground audience to be informed of the activities of the Greek bands. The original concept was made as a means to unite the Greek underground rock scene for the first time.
This page has been made, not only for the bands, but also for the people who support The Greek Underground Scene.
There are several plans in the works, including charity festivals to gather medications, food, and clothing for people in need.
Have an idea? Share it with us! The continued success of this project will rely upon your contribution to it!
