ElektroSpank | FMA - Online Music Magazine

Anneta G. (Ann) R.I.P.

Anneta G. is the founder of the ElektroSpank magazine. She has given the name to this project from the very first steps. She was the eyes, the voice and the face of the magazine. The eyes, because she was the main photographer, the voice, because she used to fascinate the listeners of the radio show and the face, since she was conducting the most of the interviews with the bands and artists. She had been an original dark soul and a woman that anyone would love at first sight. A woman with great music taste and unmistakable music instinct. Anneta was also a member of Psycho Sektor DJ team formed in mid 00's, playing industrial and gothic hits in several clubs in Greece. Anneta is the main and a great inspiration for this new version of ElektroSpank and the whole project is dedicated to her. Anneta passed away in December 2017, age 38.

Cleopatra K.

Cleopatra Kaido was born and raised in the center of Athens and was influenced by the alternative dark wave scene from a very early age. This later led her to join the ''Drama Queen'' band a band with post punk/goth rock sounds where she completed as a lead singer her first album titled ''Artifical Galaxy'' by the label ''Swiss Dark Nights''. Some  disagreements with ''Drama Queen'' forced her to leave the group. She continued to search for the next one and experimenting with different styles in dark wave scene, she manages to change the line up with lyrical and vocal ideas with the talented quitarist Dimitris katsikadis and prepare their first album ''System Anomaly''. Her love for music does not stop here as she wants to take a closer look at various bands and with her personal judgment to write a few words about them..

Somewhere here the journey begins!

Maria P.

Maria Leon Papadaki was born and raised on the island of Crete,far away from where the big events happen still a loyal follower of music from an early age. Wandering through the years among different genres and styles,she found home in the dark scene . Discovering new music and artists is her passion which she currently shares on her YT Channel "Angel in the Dark" .


"I hold music in my heart like the breath in my lungs, it has saved me more than once. That’s the things about music. It never leaves. It’s solid. It validates my feelings and tops off my emotions. The same way my heart reminds me of my existence, the same way my name is stitched into who I am. There are lyrics on my skin from decades ago to remind me that some years were dark but I survived in the darkness and thrived in my own light. The best of my heart is a dance, instruments holding the strings, and my song is always playing." Stephanie Bennett-Henry
