Heavy Metal Music is our life. We like playing Metal and having a fun time when practicing or when playing for people.
We invite you to visit us, do metal with us...so be a phalangite and... "Take your place in the PHALANX !!!"
This band was formed out of the idea to create and keep alive metal music, the main subject is ancient hellenic ways of thinking and living, the traditional hellenic spirit, which still exists.
Equivalent to music like Viking Metal this Band performs equivalent subjects based on the hellenic culture, so we call it Hellenic Metal. We are the first band defining Hellenic Metal as a new Heavy Metal subgenre. Our style of playing has a, what we call, strong drive of 80's metal.
The band was created by Thanatos and his son The Machine in December 2013. Though the band resides in the city Sindelfingen, area of Stuttgart in Germany, it is defined as hellenic (greek) band by the founder members since they are hellenic citizens, origin Thessaloniki, prefecture of Macedonia in Hellas (Greece).
Thanatos originally performed from the very first day as a heavy metal lead singer but also as song writer and builder, he was a member of various heavy metal bands of Germany. After a series of disappointments he decided to pause, but managed to keep his ideas alive for a long period of time, so he finally created a new from the scratch metal band with his son. Creating the band PHALANX, Thanatos additionally plays lead and rhythm guitar.
The Machine plays drums and is also responsible for demo recording, technical and mixing issues.
The metal warriors of the PHALANX are...
Thanatos - vocals/guitar
The Machine - drums
Hades - bass
From March 2015 - April 2016, Fenrir was the bass player.
Since June 2017 Hades joins the band as bassist.
- for the word 'hellenic' people often use 'greek', we prefer we original and official term 'hellenic' instead of 'greek', 'Hellas' instead of 'Greece', and 'Hellene' instead of 'Greek'. We want to name the things correctly as it suits also to the band's concept.
