Biography

There are more bands using this name:

1) Black Metal band from Kent (UK). Featuring Dave Wharton the infamous Paul Timms. Timms along with others were convicted for causing over £100,000 worth of damage to churches and cemeteries in Tunbridge Wells, clearly influenced by events taking place in Norway around the same time.

2) Acropolis is an Israeli Extreme-Power metal outfit that was founded under the name AREA 51 in mid-2001 by guitarists Daniel Varfolomeyev and Elad Manor as a quartet including drummer Amir Shaham and The new bassist Max Gringus

After 4 days of activity, the band debuted first time onstage in the Extreme Rock Festival, and expanded it’s lineup to a 6-piece group in the following year adding vocalist Dror ‘Shoko’ Pe’er, guitarist Asaf David and keyboardist Dana Ayalon. Elad ended up handling the bass duties instead of Ran.

In summer 2002, the band performed festivals in Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem with the new lineup, and entered the studio with Eyal Glottman (Eternal Gray, Prey For Nothing) to record a 3 song demo, two of which were released as singles in winter 2003 under the new name - ACROPOLIS.

Despite the attention drawing around the new band, the lineup was disbanded due to army enlistment by the end of 2003.

Elad and Daniel continued their musical activities with THE FADING and ARAFEL respectively, exploring additional styles and creating a strong bond of musical collaborations between the members of these bands.

    There is a confusion in this page between the Israeli ACROPOLIS band (ex-Area 51) - the one which music you hear on this page and Amazon, and a different russian based acropolis band, of which you see most of the media/events. please make order.
