Until now the Czech Republic hasn’t exactly been in the spotlight of
the international Heavy Metal Scene. But with the expansion of the
European Union towards the east, more and more bands from those
countries will find it easier to establish themselves. One of the first
ones to tick all the boxes of becoming a potentially great name in the
classical Symphonic Metal scene is SYMPHONITY.
Back in 1994
guitarist Libor Krivak and drummer Tomas Suchacek formed a band
called OTTER, which was renamed NEMESIS a few years later after the
lineup had changed several times. An experienced singer was found in
Vilem Majtner and it was with him that the band recorded their debut
album, "Goddess of Revenge" on the Italian label, Underground
Symphony in 2003. The Japanese label Hot Rockin' bought the licence
for the album in the same year for the Japanese market. During 2003
the band was joined by keyboarder Ivo Hofmann, found their bass
player Tomas Celechovsky the next year and after that, NEMESIS
played their first international gigs. 2005 started off badly when the
band's co-founder Tomas Suchacek decided to leave, but fortunately,
he was quickly be replaced by Martin Skaroupka. In the same year the
band was given the chance to open for NIGHTWISH in Zilina. This,
their biggest performance until then, was a great success. However,
during the preparations for their new album, singer Vilem Majtner
surprisingly left the band. Making the most from a bad situation, the
lads decided to use the opportunity for a reshuffle. They changed the
band's name from NEMESIS to SYMPHONITY and in the LUCA TURILLI
and ex-DIONYSUS singer Olaf Hayer they found a suitable vocalist who
met all their high musical demands. The German-Czech Entente was a
paradigm of harmony, a fact that was not overlooked by Limb Music
Products, who offered SYMPHONITY a contract straight away.
A sudden death of bass guitarist Tomas Celechovsky in June 2012 delayed a making of an upcoming album. The band didn't leave for Gate studio in Wolfsburg until September 2013. Ronnie König of SIGNUM REGIS filled in on bass and Herbie Langhans (SINBREED, AVANTASIA), who has already appeared in cover version of the song „Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime“ on previous album, stood by Olaf's side at a mic. The album called King of Persia is going to be released on 23rd of September 2016 at the Limb Music and Marquee Inc. / Avalon in Japan.
