Multivision is an alternative rock band, originating from Greece. Under influences of different rock styles from 80s till late 10s, their first EP “Lucius” was created in a studio apartment by vocalist Stelios Latridis (aka StIL), bass player Bill Ntanos, and lead guitarist Dimitris Tzilopoulos.

With the addition of drummer Steph Laskos, the band released the EP, which was mixed and mastered by Dimitris Douvras at Lunatech Sounds Studio, in the spring of 2018. The band appeared on numerous radio shows, promoting their EP and announcing that they were in pre-production of a second studio album, alongside their conceptual logo persona “Lucius”.

Guitarist Bill Melachrinos completed the setup before the recording of their LP, "Choose", in 2020. Their collaboration with Lunatech Sounds Studio finalized the whole project one year later. The album expanded on the alternative rock sound of its EP predecessor, engaging with blues and punk styles. By the fall of 2021, drummer Jason Glykidis was brought into the setup as a main member.

Multivision's debut album, "Choose", is a psychedelic jungle of rock, pop and punk. From the heavy distortion of the guitars to the chirpy vocals and the whining bass, it's an impressive affair from a group that recorded their first EP in a band member's studio apartment only a few short years ago. You can check out the record on Spotify and other music streaming and purchasing platforms. We would highly recommend it!
