POEM is a four-piece progressive rock/metal group based in Athens, Greece formed in 2006. With their wonderful amalgam of progressive metal, hard hitting riffs and intricate atmospheres, Poem will find a home with any fan of such eclectic bands as Tool, Anathema, Porcupine Tree, Pain of Salvation, Katatonia and Karnivool!
In the spring of 2016, POEM opened a 45-date tour for Amorphis, taking them through all of Europe, creating a massive fanbase of their own. This was followed up by another touring adventure in 2017 – this time as direct support slot, for the Andorran prog/shred masters, Persefone.
