Biography

Milan, Italy (1998 – present)

Derdian is a band from Milan, Italy.

‘Henry Pistolese’ and Marco Covelli founded the band in 1998 and initially intended it to be a thrash metal style. The two founders were joined in this project by Luigi Trapani (vocals/guitar) and Samuele Carrari (bass). They began by covering bands like Metallica and Megadeth. However, at some point they began writing original songs with more of a power metal sound, a change which influenced Luigi and Samuele to leave the band. The new band was completed by the addition of Max Raineri (bass), Luca Aversa (lead guitar), Federico Bonetti (keyboards) and Andrea Figus(vocals).

Derdian released their first self-produced demo CD called Revenge in 2001. Distributed just in Italy, it was very well reviewed by main local power metal-focused magazines and websites like Power Zone Magazine and Orion Magazine. After the recording of the demo, new line-up changes occurred because lack of time and some disagreements caused Federico and Max to leave the band. They were replaced by Marco Garau (keyboards) and Alessandro Colombo (bass), both of them ex-members of the already defunct Eternal Glory. The band went on writing new songs and doing live shows. In January 2002, Luca Aversa(lead guitar) left the band for time reasons, being replaced by Massimo Sangiorgi who disagreed with the other members of the band and was consequently replaced.

In February of the same year Derdian played a live show at the Indian’s Saloon in Bresso (Mi) and in March at the Transilvania in Milan.

    The new album is really great! A lot better than "Limbo" in my opinion!

    Really looking forward to the upcoming album! I'm hoping they will follow their old formula with an intro lasting 1-2 minutes, an instrumental as the second last track and an epic that's roughly 10+ minutes long. Also a ballad would be nice (the thing I missed most from "Limbo"). I'm certain that it will be fantastic!

    Hey guys, long time no see! I've followed you since New Era pt. 1 and right now I am writing a review about Limbo, and it seems to be quiet promising for a high rating. Stay tuned for the link guys and keep up the good work! Best regards, Lennart

    Some of the best power metal lyrics, right up there with Falconer and Sonata Arctica.
