Socrates Drank The Conium were a very talented progressive hard rock group from Greece with a clumsy name. On The Wings was the band's third, and best album. Socrates had some biting guitar tones, and cool songs, but the star here is drummer Yorgos Tradalidis. The guy is a wealth of finessed breaks to die for (DJs,turntablists, and breakbeaters take note). Weird off-kilter rhythms and rhythms collide with gut-punching rock riffs to form a solid album. On The Wings is highly recommended.
