The band was formed in 2007 by guitarists Alexander Mladenov and Plamen Hristov. At first the band’s name was Hellriders but later it was changed to 818 which also means Hellriders (HellRiders=HR… H is the 8th leter of the alphabet and R is the 18th) Later the bass guitarist Daniele Febbo came… the first two drummers- Kaloyan Popov and Veselin Spasov left the band because they were not serious enough in their effort. The third drummer- Yavor has another band- Degradat. With Yavor, 818 recorded its first song- Insanity. It was recorded with the basist of Degradat whose name is Alexander because Daniele Febbo was unable to play at that time. This song won 11th plce out of 70 songs who competed in a music competition in april 2008. The record was first heard on the 5th of april. Shortly after that the band began working on its next song- Six Feet Under. However at this point (June,20th 2009) the song is still not ready. Only the first verse is ready. After Yavor left the band there was a long period of time (the summer and autumn of 2008) in which the band did not practice. In december, Plamen Hristov and alexander Mladenov played in a school concert. In January the song “Ruler of Your World” was written. In March “Hellrider” was written. Ruler of Your World is a fast and energetic song whereas Hellrider is a more slow and heavy song. The songs were finished on a rehearsal with Asen Vaptsarov in March 2009 but they are still not recorded. After Alexander Mladenov left Marsh (another band in which he plyed) in June 2009, 818 began searching for a new drummer. We hope we’ll find one this summer and we’ll be back to kick ass in September.
Fortunately Asen Vaptsarov is back ! We’re ready to kick ass again !! Expect our first album next year !
Asen Vaptsarov was replaced by Ivan Belchev in December 2009. At this point 818 has several songs that are finished : Insanity, Ruler of Your World, No Way Out, Hellrider, Six Feet Under, Mad, Loving After You, Urbangrey pt.1, Urbangrey pt.2, The more I stay; now the band is working on a couple of other songs. It is likely that the band starts recording its first album in the begining of 2010 !
