Introducing ENTERFIRE and 'Slave of Time'

by Roger Moisan Arts and Entertainment, Kids and Teens
ENTERFIRE was created by NIKI B (Nicholas Nikoloudis) in 2017. It is a project which talks mostly about the time that is passing without mercy and the world which is changing continuously. The songs crafted meticulously combined with powerful lyrics have resulted in melodic metal with trash influence.

The videoclip for the band’s new single ‘Slave of time’ was shot at the ancient theatre of Thassos island in Greece. Many thanks to Thomas Doukinitsas who directed and shot the music video.

by Roger Moisan Self Improvement, Home and Family, Kids and Teens

Kamel’s daughter is unable to drive anywhere without using her Sat Nav and has absolutely no map reading skills.
