Serenity

The Last Knight by Fabio D’Amore The name Serenity comes from a song title of the band Arena, from 1998. Our former keyboard player Mario, and founding member, had the idea for the title. I think it fits the band’s style and gives a calm and charming feeling when you spell or read it. We…

Lonewolf

Division Hades by Jens Börner Lonewolf is for me a name that fits perfectly with a heavy metal band. I always was happy with this name we choose. Back in the days, that must be 1991; we had a band called Walpurgis Night. It was a five fronted band where I was the only rhythm…

Fairyland

Osyrhianta by Philippe Giordana Fairyland is, basically, the “other world”, the realm of legends and fantastic creatures.

It seemed quite fitting for the subjects we were going to deal with,…

Goblins Blade

Of Angels and Snakes by Jörg M. Knittel I founded the band in 2018 and thought about a suitable band name for a long time. It’s really not easy these days to find a good-sounding name that hasn’t been used yet. Then one day I listened to the band Heathen who have a song called…

Falconer

From a Dying Ember by Stefan Weinerhall I chose the name Falconer since I felt it represented both freedom and pride in a way. Also, it had that notion of medieval times that fitted our concept. Plus, it short and easy.  I knew that ‘From a Dying Ember’ would become our final album and felt…

Harmonize

Warrior in the Night by George Constantinou We were fascinated by the word “harmonize” and the correlations of it. We found that the name suits the story that our work is based on. The idea of harmony, balance and equilibrium. We are aware that it is not apparent as of now, but we aim to…
