Misty Route is an alternative metal band formed in 2019, in Athens, by Lefteris Saatsakis [guitar and vocals] and George Armando Konomi [bass]. After a few auditions, Kostas Bacopoulos joined the band on drums in October 2019 and completed the lineup that later recorded the album »Without A Trace«. In September 2023 Konstantinos Kaloudis was the last to join the band to replace Kostas on the drums. The story begins when mutual friends of theirs introduced Lefteris and George to each other, who began jamming together and creating some first tunes. All the band members had some short experience as solo artists or as members of local bands in the past. However, Misty Route represents a joint attempt to take things to the next level.
Misty Route is a unique name chosen to reflect the band’s musical style as much as possible. It symbolizes the passage of the human being through life and the journey towards the destination. In parallel, it also evokes the deep thoughts and dilemmas of the wanderers, as well as the unexpected at the other end of the mist waiting to be discovered.

Their music is inspired by a mix of different genres and is mainly defined by its ambient and groovy character. Touches of psychedelic rock are harmoniously brought together with metal breakouts. After the release of a 3-track demo in 2020, Misty Route officially launched digitally on December 26, 2021 its debut album entitled »Without A Trace«. The album will be available as digipack CD also on Bandcamp from November 24, 2023 via Bitume label.
Published for the first time digitally in December 2021, »Without A Trace« is finally being released in physical format under the associative label Bitume Prods. The album’s 11 tracks are an experimental journey into the world of sound, inspired by beloved faces and pure emotion.
