An Italian (Brescia, to be exact) melodic metal troupe formed in 1996, Tragodia drew comparisons to such genre-mates as the Provenance and Tiamat. The group's first output, a demo entitled Dramas in Splendent Realms, was released in 1998, and was followed by further demo work collected in the mini-CD All Our Miseries. From there, Tragodia focused on their live show, touring their home nation and neighboring Greece. Eventually, the band scored a record deal -- with Dutch label Dark Balance -- and was able to get into the studio to record its debut album. The resulting work, The Promethean Legacy, was issued on October 1, 2007. Before the band could get on the road to promote its work, however, a snag arrived in the loss of vocalist Carlo Vellani. Fortunately for Tragodia, an able replacement was soon found in the form of Stafano Roncadori, and the band was able to hit the road.
