NILE drummer George Kollias will release Invictus, his new solo album, on May 18th in Europe, and May 19th in North America, via Season Of Mist.

George Kollias is a world class touring drummer, who is also renowned for his drum clinics and teaching skills at LAB Music Education and the Modern Music School in Athens, Greece. Born in August 1977, he started at the age of ten as a guitar player and picked up the drum set at the age of twelve. George's prowess as a composer showed up back in 1994 with his first death metal band, EXTREMITY OBSESSION, where he serves as drummer and vocalist at the same time.

On his first instructional drum DVD, Intense Metal Drumming, George started getting back into song writing mode. Some of his tracks were enthusiastically welcomed by the metal community. Over a million views on YouTube compelled him to compose more music for his second DVD, Intense Metal Drumming II. Most of these songs were entirely performed by the Greek musician, who also used them in several drum clinics and some of the biggest percussion festivals around the globe. This created a very strong fan base who, which enthusiastically requested a full album.

In early 2014, George Kollias went into studio to record his first full album, which he aptly named Invictus. Most of the songs were recorded in between the touring breaks of NILE. The album contains 11 tracks and 4 bonus songs as well as features of some of the best musicians on this planet delivering guest solos. Two amazing vocalists are making their appearance on two of the bonus tracks as well. More will soon be revealed.

In George's own words: "This album is not only about drums, although I made sure that my drumming is absolutely out of control. It is all about music and that is it. I have made my solo record with a lot of passion and dedication for all the fans out there and I feel blessed to have some of my best friends appearing as guests on it. Invictus turned out exactly in the way as I had wished for and I can assure you that this is just the beginning! There are a lot of great things to come!"
