Redrum is a melodic Hard Rock Band based in Thessaloniki (Greece). Athan 'Lyssa' Kazakis and Panos Baxevanis started the project in September of 2003 and a year later they recorded 12 songs in a local studio. After getting in touch with the well known German Vocalist Michael Bormann (ex-Jaded Heart), theyÎ„d sent the material to Duisburg,where Michael recorded all the vocal parts and co-wrote a couple of the songs. Panos, Athan and Michael finally completed "No turning back". "No turning back" album was released in September 2007 by Sleaszy Rider Records, which took the best critics around the world.
Some of them:
*Redrum is a class act of international quality.- Craig Hartranft - DangerDog
*Redrum has definitely succeeded in delivering a mighty fine first album with this â€˜No Turning Backâ€™ record. - LordsOfMetal
*â€œNo Turning Backâ€ doesnâ€™t sound as a debut album and certainly not as coming from a Greek combo ... and thatâ€™s only meant as a big compliment for a band that oozes international class. - Rock Report
In the first four years of excistence, besides their headliner shows, Redrum supported also a lot of well known bands like Bonfire, Tyketto, Krokus, Danger Danger, House Of Lords, Adlers Apetite, Blue Tears, Europe, Robert Plant and Glenn Hughes. They appeared on festivals like "Firefest" and "Rockwave" in Athens. "No Turning Back" was the first Redrum Song released, included in V3 the third compilation CD of Melodicrock.com by Andrew McNiece in 2006. In 2012 Redrum headlined "Rosewood Festival" in Thessaloniki and also played at "Z Rock Festival" in UK.
Some reviews from Z Rock said:
*Redrum were highly entertaining, pulling metal poses, and were perhaps the rockiest band! -GetReadyToRock
*But first it was time for some real hard rockin from the Greeks as the very enthusiastic Athan "Lyssa" Kazakis and the rest of the band hit the stage running with â€˜Rise Upâ€™ and ' Stay Ready', which resulted in the crowd once again breaking ranks and heading straight down to the front of the stage. - TheMayfairmallzine
For their 2nd album REDRUM decided, to write and record together as a grown band in the RMB-Studios in Duisburg, Germany with Michael Bormann at the helm including Marco Grasshoff as the new official band member on the keys. In about fourteen days, 12 killer songs were written and the basics were recorded.
These incredible songs are now ready to rock you on their new CD titled "Redrum ~ Victims Of Our Circumstances" worldwide released at April 26th 2013 through RMB Records along with a tour to support their latest greatest masterpiece loaded full of pure hard rock heaven.
