DiZZY DiZIGN were born on April 22, 2008 in Kyparissia (Messinia, GR) through the ashes of a previous project, since 2001.
The first line-up was:
Dimitris Sampaziotis - guitars, lead vocals
Marios Petropoulos - guitars
Stefanos Sampaziotis - keyboards, effects, vocals
Dionisis Sampaziotis - drums, vocals
Panagiotis Sampaziotis - bass
The band's activity begins from Kyparissia (the diz diz base), with rehearsals and live performances several times by 2009 to date. As regards the composition of authentic material, there was a remarkable amount of ideas to work on, since 2006. So, the musical horizons expanded with every jam or gig and through a continuous development, DiZZY DiZIGN made the big step forward by recording the result of a three-year working experience.
The recordings made between December 2009 and July 2010, in Patras (GR). The whole project is titled Dizality and finally, it's been released in LP format. It should be noted that the process of completion of this release was mostly self-financed (please, see the relevant post with the release announcement). It contains music influenced by the 70’s progressive rock and the 90’s progressive metal. Further inspirations came from the jazz fields, the avant-garde trips and the domestic musical traditions.
After Marios' withdrawal from the creative section (back in March 2010), the band turned in quite different musical directions from those which were presented at Dizality. By July 2010, Thanasis Sampaziotis (sax and effects) participated in some rehearsals, contributing to the new efforts for more experimental / impro / jazz ways. Finally, he joined the ranks of the group in October 2010.
What DiZZY DiZIGN have got in mind now, are particular new material synthesis and maybe some special gigs to promote Dizality and also to present the new sound, arising from the line-up changes. Stay tuned for more news to come.
