PLJ Band - Armageddon (@256kb)




In 1982 PLJ Band released "Armageddon", an album considered to be among the best ever produced in Greece. The lyrics were inspired by the Apocalypse of John, just as in the legendary "666" by Aphrodite's Child about 11 years earlier. Never the less the lyrics were found blasphemous and offensive to god and the christian orthodox church and the copies had to be destroyed.. No comments about that. Some of them survived though and right now the original copy is very rare. There's been a cd release and a vinyl reissue by Anazitisi Records though.

PLJ Band consisted of Laurentis Macheristas (lead vox, 12-string guitar & keyboards), Antonis Mijelos (lead & acoustic guitars), Pavlos Kikrilis (rhuthm & acoustic guitars), Jimmy Vasalakos (bass, backing vox) and Tolis Skamajouras (drums, percussion). They later reached commercial success under the name "Termites", when they began writing their lyrics in greek. The lead singer Laurentis Macheritsas started a solo career in 1989, after the band's breakup.
