Anatolian Weapons, the newest project of Athens, Greece-based artist Aggelos Baltas, debuts on Beats In Space Records with To The Mother Of Gods. Best known for a handful of celebrated EBM 12”s as Dream Weapons and a particularly heady brand of krautrock as Fantastikoi Hxoi, Baltas conceived of his Anatolian Weapons project as a way to bring together these two concepts within a distinctly Greek lineage.
On To The Mother Of Gods, Baltas reinterprets eight compositions from local musician Seirios Savvaidis, dissolving traditional recordings and folk lyricism into a Golden Pudel-approved percussive storm, where polyrhythms envelop soaring chants and basslines repeat and swirl. Baltas steers the listener through Athenian past and present, seeking a future sound as wind-kissed and mystical as his country’s oldest yet lifted by the swell of dancefloor dynamics.
To The Mother Of Gods is out now on limited vinyl and unlimited digital forms. Learn more here
