Trypes Greek Rock Legends

I am sure that this name if you are not from Greece does not mean anything to you. This is the band that I really hated as a teenager but now I admire. The fact that my opinion has changed shows that they are really great because usually band that are mainly listened by teenagers as you grow older you start not to like them and additionally to consider them childish. On the contrary Trypes have really something deep in their music something beneath the surface which is revealed gradually and after a lot of effort. How can their music be described? Their early albums sound punk while their last three I would characterize them as post-rock but not in the conventional way. To be honest their earlier albums still are not my cup of tea but their last three are magnificent. The combination of the guitars is explosive the rhythm section is steady as a rock and then comes the singing of Angelakas...You would either love the guy or hate him. Their is no middle in this. Aggelakas is excellent and his lyrics full of aggressive despair that ends up in a magnificent protest not in the established way of the singers of the 60s but in a more introvert, deeper way. His lyrics are like poems of the beatniks, cynic, sensitive, aggresive and meaningful. It might me a little difficult since they sing in Greek but do not be frustrated by that because you will lose the chance of a musical experience. 
     The band has broken up and Aggelakas has taken a new musical road. He had a collaboration with Veliotis a cello player and then with Psarogiorgis a famous Cretan musician who plays lute. Still playing live and attracting both teenagers and olders audience since his music and lyrics have something to say to everyone listening to quality music. Members of the band played in some projects in which they are also exceptional while Aggelakas can  be seen in the movie of Nikolaidis "The looser takes it all" which in a way he plays himself!!!!
