Biography

CRYONIC TEMPLE can already look back on an eventful career. The heart of the band is singer Glen Metal, whose voice sounds very similar to that of Steve Grimmet (Grim Reaper), and guitarist Esa “Freewheeler” Ahonen (Acrope), whose traditional way of playing his instrument is marked by the drive of a K.K. Downing and the virtuosity of an Uli Jon Roth.

Glen and Esa left their previous combos, an Iron Maiden cover-band named Troopers and LEX CREDO, a prog metal outfit, in 1996, in order to put together something more professional.
The name CRYONIC TEMPLE was thought up by Johan and Esa, after watching a documentation about Cryo-Technology, which permits its pro-science followers to have their bodies frozen after death in order to be revived in the far future.


Having quickly fellow musicians for their quest, the first attempt was a mixture of progressive (Rush, Queensryche, Marillion) and atmospheric sounds (Tiamat, Mission), but after several line-up changes, they decided to let the heavy metal beast out of its cage at last. “Seasons In Hell” was the title of their first 4-track demo which appeared in 1997 and from which three titles were also taken for the “Nerve” Compilation CD.
