We are very proud to annonce our second singer!
SYMPHONITY had two singers for the most of the time in the past and there is no reason to change it. Since Antonio Abate replaced Olaf Hayer as we posted some time ago, now is the time to announce that Mayo Petranin (ex-SIGNUM REGIS) joined the band to replace Herbie Langhans.
SYMPHONITY are back and are now stronger than ever before. Stay tuned!
Libor comments: "I have known Mayo for many years, he´s a nice and kind person and very good singer of course. It´s great that we can work together now".

Symphonity are searching for a keyboard player!
SYMPHONITY are searching for a keyboard player! Our requirements are: an appropriate level of the musical skills, appropriate equipment, ability to work with the VST instruments, willingness to play gigs. The band´s base is in the Czech republic (it´s not necessary to live here, however, you should be willing to attend some rehearsals). From logistical point of view, we naturally prefer someone from Central Europe rather than from other parts of the world. If you are interested in, then, record the solo part from our song Give me your helping hand which is available here and send it to us. The best way to do it is to upload your video on YouTube and send us the link via email or our Facebook page.
An Interview with Libor for Norwegian webzine powermetal.no
The Czech Republic-based power metal band SYMPHONITY announces a brand new line-up featuring an Italian singer Antonio Abate (PERSEUS) on vocals, Radim Večeřa (DREAM PATROL) on drums and Tomáš Sklenář on bass.
As for Olaf Hayer's (a longtime German singer) leaving the band, the guitarist and composer Libor Křivák says: "It's clear to me that Olaf has a strong basis of fans, including me, unfortunately his private situation does not allow him to participate in
any band activity at this time, so sadly there was no other possibility".
The SYMPHONITY's last album, "King of Persia", was released in 2016 through Limb Music featuring two singers Olaf Hayer (ex-Luca Turilli, ex-DIONYSUS) and Herbie Langhans (AVANTASIA, ex-SINBREED) and CRADLE OF FILTH drummer Martin "Marthus" Škaroupka.
An introduction of the new line-up and an interview with the guitarist Libor Křivák and the new singer Antonio Abate is here:
