E.V.E. (Equations Vanquish Equality), is initially a melodic prog/rock project created by Vicky Psarakis, an american-greek vocalist/composer, in late 2010. The main concept behind it is the world we currently live in, everyday human situations and interactions, "disease", and the kind of corruption that comes from within. Music-wise, though the style mainly revolves around a melodic/progressive core, you can identify various fusion, ambient & even oriental elements.
In May 2012, the first self-titled EP was officially released, consisting 4 tracks.
Recordings and mixing took place at 9800 Studios (http://www.9800.gr/).
Mastering done by Nathan Allen at Last Drop Mastering, SF (http://www.lastdropmastering.com/).

-“In case a beautiful woman behind the mic is a reason for you to not even bother listening to a band or to label its music and put it to this or that music category, well E.V.E. might change your mind. ” -Metalzone-
-“Question: How disappointed can a listener feel when trapped in a release which lasts barely 18 minutes? Answer: Their only solution is the "repeat" button while hoping for a full-length album soon! Write down the name "E.V.E." for they'll surely trouble us in the future...” -GreekRebels-
-“The voice and the melodies respresent a distinct personality that goes beyond the walls of the typical female fronted sound. The atmosphere indicates a Pink Floyd/Porcupine Tree influence, rather than symphonic metal, which is customary when dealing with a female voice. This mixture acts like a "healing" to the ears as well, even at the heavier points, it manages to relax the listener.” -Rockap-
-“E.V.E.'s first EP, consisting 4 tracks, really stands out due to an incredible production, and compositions renowned bands would envy, executed with overflowing emotions.” -Rock Overdose-
-“Progressive combined with oriental melodies and even jazz influences without ending up in confusion. Throughout the entire EP you can witness a continuous variation of musical themes and emotions. If at any moment you start getting used to a particular riff, something completely different and better comes along and changes everything!” -RockinAthens.gr-
-“Fresh squeezed music, featuring Rock forms and different styles mixes; even Jazz, even Pop…Full gear and crystal spots, interesting riffing, fabulous backing vox and intermissions driving us all the way to Rush and Genesis…” -Rockpages.gr-
