INFECTED SYREN + DARK POETRY : Confirmed for Power of the Night Festival XIII 2018

Two bands from Nicosia, the punk rock/metal INFECTED SYREN and the stoner metallers DARK POETRY, added to the next POTN festival!

Infected Syren: Hailing from Nicosia Cyprus, Infected Syren are about to release their debut album on the 12th of January 2018. The album incorporates Metal, Punk, Hardcore and Psychobilly, melding it all to create the bands unique sound. This is the result of being formed and performing since 2011 in Cyprus and abroad. It’s also the follow up to their 2012 demo which was very well received by fans and website reviews. Worth noting is that all members have been active in the Cypriot metal scene since the late 90’s, as well as being involved in punk and metal bands while abroad.
Experimenting and performing all those years has made Infected Syrens band members take their role seriously, of writing and performing heavy alternative music. Expect to hear very diverse influences from bands sucha as Megadeth, The Exploited, Fuzztones, Overkill, Brian Setzer and The Horrors.

Dark Poetry: Dark Poetry is a four-piece metal band from Cyprus with traditional Middle Eastern music influences. The band was originally composed in 2002 of vocalist Andreas Pouyioukkas, guitarist Harry Andreou, bass guitarist Michalis Angeli and drummer Antreas Kallis. In 2010 they went through a reconfiguration, when vocalist Petros Koutzis replaced Andreas Pouyioukkas.
Since the beginning Dark Poetry was dedicated in composing original songs influenced by different genres of music. Throughout the years they were active in the local scene, sharing the stage with acts like Sepultura, Septic Flesh, Dark Quarterer, Lucifer’s Child, Nightstalker, Universe217 and many more. After two failed attempts of recording their material, they finally made it in 2017 and they are now ready to release an EP in January 2018 and their full length debut album later in the year.
