Bob Katsionis was born in Athens, Greece in 1977. he has studied classical organ for 12 years and has earned a dipolma in Church organ Studies. His interests in metal music began in 1989 and he bought his first guitar at the age of 17. But not until 1993 when he discovered more melodic aspects of music with such bands as ELP, Rush, Dream Theater, Yngwie Malmsteen amoungst others that made him change his musical approach that he was studying for so many years.
On "Turn of My Century" you can hear those influences as well as listen to his most inspired dremy solos all in a progressive/fusion metallic mood.
