About Without Face

Without Face is one of the forerunners of the Hungarian metal scene. The group plays space-age, atmospheric, and grandiose metal led by frontwoman Juliette. With ethereal vocals and tight musicianship, the band crafts a unique sound -- Enya meets Iron Maiden. Without Face was formed by Juliette, vocalist Andras, guitarist Roomy, bassist Akos, keyboardist Sasza, and drummer Peter in 1997, and by early 1998, they'd recorded a demo. In June 2000, the band released their debut, Deep Inside, in their home country on Hammer Music Productions. The attention-grabbing record, both dark and uplifting, was later put out in America by Dark Symphonies. Astronomicon followed in 2002. With sparkling keyboards set against heavy riffs, the collection of progressive metal draws themes from H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe for a sometimes grim, sometimes transcendent astral journey of operatic proportions. ~ Charles Spano
