Velocity is a Greek band, formed in 1998 and this is their fourth album. If I am mistaken: forgive me, I could not find any official information about them. They do not have a website and there is no info about the band on the label's homepage either. The musical style they play is mostly associated with New York. If you see the NYHC abbreviation you exactly know what to expect. And yes, there are bands in peaceful Greece who are playing this kind of aggressive, extreme music.

Though hardcore is only the main line in their music. They "spiced it up" with some punk and oi elements, and added some rock-ish feeling here and there. The lyrics, written in Greek, are spitted or yelled at us - as it has to be done in this style. Simple, hacked to death rhythms and refrain melodies we are listening to here - as dozens of bands have played it many times, many years ago. Boring and obsolete. Also the sound fits to this concept, we are taking a 10 years time travel back into the past.

I cannot say too much else about this album. In the sentences above you find everything you need to know about "Eleftheria" (that means "freedom" in English); this music holds not much interest. For die-hard fans of the style, it might be a unique piece in their collection, but otherwise there are better hardcore bands out there.
