GEORGE KOLLIAS has firmly established a well earned reputation as a world- class drummer. His exceptional work with death metal legends NILE as well as heavily frequented percussion clinics around the globe and guest-contributions have cemented George's status as a rare progeny with the sticks. Yet there is far more to the Greek musician than "just" drumming. 'Invictus', his album debut as a solo artist proves that GEORGE KOLLIAS also exceeds on performing with all other instruments from the rock and metal spectrum. Tracks such as "Shall Rise, Shall Be Dead", "The Passage", and "Treasures of Nemesis" unleash a crushing death metal assault. His own exceptional work across all instruments is enriched by guest spots from members of established genre titans such as NILE, ROTTING CHRIST, FIREWIND and others. Far more than just a solo-album vanity piece, 'Invictus' delivers classic, timeless death metal. "This solo project contains exactly what the word 'solo' describes: one musician writing all music and lyrics as well as performing all the instruments", states GEORGE KOLLIAS. "I can honestly say, the only reason I have recorded this album is the fans asked for this to happen. I am happy that I did it and more excited than ever for the future of this project! I enjoyed recording it more than anything. I also had to pleasure to have some really important guests, which made this album even more special to me."

Statement George Kollias: "Shall Rise/Shall Be Dead is a fast song at the 260bpm range. It is not to easy, but a lot of fun to play and one of my favourites from my album. I really like that tempo range, which I always thought fits my drumming style well, but I also love the aggression that comes out of this song. It is not just the drumming that does it, but the riffs... the vocals.... or all as one. The percussion is really important for 'Shall Rise' and the rest of album as well. I spent plenty of time to find exactly what fits each composition. For this song, I went with big war drums to make it as epic as possible! I am very happy how this song turned out exactly how I envisioned it while writing. Yet having George Emmanuel from Rotting Christ adding a guitar solo made this one of my personal highlights. George nailed it!"
