Brazilian power metal band formed in 1997 by Marco Caporasso (guitar/vocals), Eduardo Marques (guitar/vocals), Mauricio Taborda (bass/vocals), and Marcelo Caporasso (drums). The quartet’s demo CD Gods Of Ice attracted the attention of the Megahard Records label, which released a re-recorded version of the CD in 2000 under the title Underdark. A new contract with the HTR Records label resulted in the far superior Throne Of The Alliance, the first in a projected trilogy of albums based on the story of two fictional kingdoms. The album was re-released by the much larger Hellion Records label shortly afterwards, allowing the band’s music to be heard on an international level for the first time. André Mendes replaced Marques on 2005’s Vengeance In Black, another strong release that saw the quartet steering towards a more aggressive speed metal sound.
