Greece born musician Miltiadis Chalkidis aka Miltos Marathon and one of the few artists out there that still keeps alive that original Greek musical element in their music has just teased an upcoming album.
While everything is still being kept under wraps, the artist said that all was on course and that relevant details will be made available in the coming weeks

"So feel free to visit! I also prepared some new music videos from my latest album "Two match" Feel free to subscribe to my official YouTube channel to watch the video clips", he said.

SO JUST WHO IS MILTOS MARATHON?

Miltiadis created 'Marathon', a blues/rock power trio back and 1994 and recorded 8 independently produced albums. His band was a regular in bars, clubs and festivals in Larisa, Thessaly and central Greece.
In 2008 the musician however decided to pursue a career as a solo artist under the name Miltos Marathon.
"That name has a metaphorical meaning and at the same time creates a kind of pun: Miltos, short for the Greek name Miltiadis. Marathon, a long-distance running event.
"A more romantic perspective, beyond the literal meaning of these words, will give us a deeper understanding of the Miltos Marathon philosophy.
"If life is like a long-distance running race... I'm very pleased that in my case, it is a music marathon!", he explained.

In 2008 the musician also began reconstruction on his personal studio so he could record and release his music independently.
"Greek Fill is the first official studio album by Miltos Marathon. The album was released on September 20, 2015 by Miltos Marathon. It was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Miltiadis Chalkidis at the Miltos Marathon personal recording studio. It is a unique record that combines the Greek musical element with the electricity of the contemporary sound, within the spectrum of the Miltos Marathon musical temperament, creating an innovative music style.
"Two Match is the second official studio album by Miltos Marathon. The album was released on December 31, 2017 by Miltos Marathon. It was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Miltiadis Chalkidis in the Miltos Marathon personal recording studio. The songs included in this album are some of the first lyrics and music compositions created by me throughout my adolescence.
"These compositions created in the mid 90s, were released that time as a demo entitled 'Too Much Trouble for Nothing' and for many were a fine specimen of the musical style of Miltos Marathon back then", said Miltos.
