Mask of Prospero is a modern progressive metal band from Athens, Greece. The band was formed by Chris Kontoulis and Panos Kottaras in 2014 and released their first EP “In Absence” the following year. After major changes in the line‐up, the band is currently comprised of Chris Kontoulis ‐ Vocals, Panos Kottaras & Nick Letsios ‐ Guitars, Bill Perrakis – Bass and Eleni Nota ‐ Drums.
Their debut album “The Observatory” was released in April 2018 via Symmetric Records, run by their producer Bob Katsionis (Firewind, Outloud). With that release they have provided their audience with a solid reference to their unique sound, which alternates between energy‐filled, djenty and polyrhythmic parts and emotional atmospheric passages under the light of a lyrical concept inspired by modern‐day society and human superstition. The vocals have an eccentric role in their sound as they also alternate through various brutal parts and melodic clean vocals, fitted for fans of TesseracT, The Ocean Collective, Architects etc…
Mask of Prospero have been very active ever since the release of their debut. After opening for Wolfheart, performing at Schoolwave 2018 and supporting Thy Art is Murder in their 2018 European tour, they are finally getting ready for their long‐awaited performance in support of “The Observatory”, promising an emotionally charged show built around presenting the concept of their album to its fullest.
