Earlier this year, the band has released a new live video to the track “To Cavirs”, filmed in Athens, Greece in February 2020. The track comes from the 1997 debut album “Προς Κάβειρους (To Cavirs)” which is included in the Pagan Records reissues.

The band commented: “We are very proud of this collaboration. It reflects our hard work of 30 years. All albums are fully remastered and we have also added bonus tracks from our last concert in Athens. Χαιρε Βακχε.”
