Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of George Kollias
    TWENTIES
  • 2005
    Age 27
    He previously drummed for Sickening Horror, a death metal band. He also used to be in the Greek melodic death metal band Nightfall, but left the band in 2005 to join Nile. Kollias made an instructional drumming DVD called Intense Metal Drumming that was released in July 2008. A press release dated April 5, 2012, announced Kollias's recruitment for session drums on the Wagnerian Opera Metal project Lyraka's upcoming album.
    More Details Hide Details He has a brother named Iraklis Kollias, who was the guitarist for the band Extremity Obsession. Kollias uses a foot technique in between heel up and heel down. His heels remain close to the bases of the pedals, but he doesn't actually touch the pedal board. All the weight of his legs fall on the balls of his feet. When playing at slower bpms, Kollias's legs do the vast majority of the movement of a kick, moving up and down as much as the pedal does itself. However, as his speed increases, the heels of his feet move less and less, until the bpm is high enough that all the movement of the pedals stems from his ankles. Once he gets up to speeds that are this fast, he employs a swivel technique. In this technique, he uses his feet to keep count of the beats he has hit, moving his ankles to the right side of the pedal and then swinging them over to the other side of the pedal. In this way, as he explains, the extra energy that one's legs waste when they work so hard is utilized.
  • 1999
    Age 21
    Around 1999, he started drum lessons with Greek drummer Yannis Stavropoulos, who was a big influence on Kollias.
    More Details Hide Details His early inspirations include Richard Christy, Paul Bostaph, Pete Sandoval, Dave Lombardo, Igor Cavalera, Gene Hoglan. Later his taste expanded to different drummers like Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, Thomas Lang, and Mike Mangini.
