Becca Crowe now enters the scene with the voice of a dark angel wafting through the air, intoxicating to some and damn near beheading some with raw power. Shortly after this Simon and Steve get in contact with a very skillful, promising young lead guitarist in the form of Logan Ellis. The mindboggling sweeps, the superfast guitar work, the breathtaking skill, Logan is one of the best of his age. Just before the first practice as a full group Steve gets a phone number from a friend about a vocalist named Kieran Thomas.
He came along to the first practice and had a listen to the band and got to know everyone, on the second practice he officially joined the band with his mix of raw, powerful voice and screams, he will blow you away. In October Simon stumbles across a very dedicated, enthusiatic bassist in the form of Kelly Bowen. She met everyone and came along to her first practice and really liked what the band was doing and decided it was definitely for her, the band welcomed her with open instruments and the legacy of the full band begins... Beware. http://www.myspace.com/violationnz (3) Violation was a Melodic Death Metal Band from Germany.
Was founded in 1993 by Alexander Schödel (guit) and Wolfgang Dreiseitel (vox). Two years later the line-up was complete with Martin Saalfrank (bass), Claudia Reich (keys), Andreas Schmidt (drums) and Larsen Beattie (guitar). The six recorded the one and only demo tape "Carbonized" in 1996. The tape earned a lot of good critics and sold 600 copies. In october 1997 the band travelled to Sweden, to record the debut album with Mikael Hedlund and Peter Tägtgren without a deal in hands.
"Beyond The Graves" was released in February 1998 on Last Episode Records. Soon afterwards, band and company went seperate ways. The new label was Invasion Records and Abyss Studio was booked again for August 1999. Meanwhile the line-up changed: Marcus Fiessmann replaced singer Barney, Olli Riedel replaced Larsen on the guitar and Jens Löhner became the new bass player. In the middle of 1999, due to personal problems of the management, Invasion showed no signs of life anymore, so they went to Sweden once again without a record deal. In early 2000 a new label was found.
Red Stream Records (USA) released "Moonlight´s Child", which was produced by Tommy Tägtgren, in may 2000 in Europe and America. In 2005 the band called it quits after Alex Schödel and keyboarder Claudia Reich decided to leave the band. However, the remaining members continued on with a new project named "Hellscape". Hellscape is about to release their debut album "Downwards" in the next weeks! http://www.myspace.com/hellscape1 Read more on Last.fm.
