Doric is the moniker of the purist, Stathis Leontiadis (Human Puppets, Exetix, Plexiglas). Being involved in various avant garde/new wave music projects since 1996, intrigued by the 'all' analogue mentality of the late '70s - early '80s music field, he is passionatelly commited to vintage synths and machines, creating a very distinctive and specific style and considered by many as a “specialist”.
On this release,the main subject of the record is creative interplay. The first side (the “Asleep”side), includes songs, written by the artist alone, using sleep as a metaphor of loneliness and seclusion from the oppressive, everyday society that smothers anything unique under the struggle of daily routine. However, on the second side, Doric mutes his skeptic, internal monologue for a bit and collaborates with two very talented and like-minded artists, Pascal and Valisia Odell. Pascal (Foucault, Noisetoy, Ludmilla) is an ingenius multi-instrumentalist and an old friend of Doric and Valisia Odell (Phoenix Catscratch, Strawberry Pills, Father Breath) is one of the most charismatic voices in Greece, with a very distinctive and enchanting vocal hue.This friendship results to the second side (the “Awaken” side), a critical view of what our society translates into artistic and life success in general. A simplified formula that often leads to bury our most creditable truths, in order to become a pattern, easily readable and understandable by the masses.The overall essence of this record however concludes to a rather optimistic dream of a utopian reality,where everyone can create unobscured. The value of each effort can only be appreciated through time.
Limited to 300, black copies with the distinctive “Doric” handmade artwork,a homage to the D.I.Y. Ethos, an infusion from the past but a promise of a future.

Track Name: A.1.Over My Dreams
Living in deception in this Every day fear
Nightmares follow me,they are so near!
It's hard to imagine that something will change,
no hope for the desparate


Nightmares follow me all over my dreams
The days become heavier,
the nights never end
Lies become reality
(You can't tell what's real!)
It's better to give up,than to resist.
Track Name: A.3.Sleep Of Reason
Over the mountains and over the seas
Remembering a past life,do you know what this means?
You must be someone important to me
But you're getting nowhere and you know how it seems?

Into an abyss and it's like a dream,
The torture starts before you get in
Your mind is lost
Your body shakes
You can't wake up
And now you know what this means.
Track Name: B.1.Exposing Vanity
Someone told you that you're gonna be a big star
A contract signed in blood and hope
Posing for magazines
Your face is all over
Vanity consumes you
You want to make it through.
You have a preety face and a nice body
You wear the right clothes and have the "proper"attitude

Socializing is a thing for you

Talent doesn't matter as long you have the money
to promote yourself.
Track Name: B.2.Life In Reverse
Days and night,feeling blue
All the marks point at you
Seing back the chance you had
Missed it again for all you've got.
Attention/Agression/Misfortune/Can't function/No Expression/Submission
Life In Reverse.
Track Name: B.3.Poets' Land
A dream Of quiet men,
with nothing to explain
and nothing to defend.
I can see land.
A poets' Land.
