Biography

Makó, Hungary (1995 – 2007)

Gire was formed back in 1995 in Makó, Hungary.

The first demo entitled On dist. was recorded in September, 1996. After the release of the material based on extreme/thrash/death metal, Tamás Kátai - who also takes part in atmospheric/experimental act Darklight and avantgarde black metal band Thy Catafalque - joined the band. In the Autumn of 1997 Gire was asked to support industrial/grind band Intense on their tour due to the great echoes from underground magazines and fanzines reflecting to ‘On dist.’. Just before the tour (in August, 1997) Balazs Hermann joined the band as a new bass guitar player.

Meanwhile members were trying to move towards a more instinctive, expressive and special way of art, where plenty of colours would have entwined from classical music to the most experimental motifs. Not everyone in the band shared these ideas about music, so first vocalist Imre Jáksó, then drummer Gábor Borbás left Gire by the June of 1998. This process made the work slower and harder as new members have not arrived, the two guitar players took the microphones and programmed drumming has been used instead of a flesh-and-blood drummer.

In 1999 Gire released their second demo called ‘Energire’ including seven songs and by September 2000, a promo CD was created, entitled ‘Hét madár’ (Seven birds).

In the time after this, they changed their poems’ language from Hungarian to English and special instruments were also added, like the conga, the darbuka and the didgeridoo. The result is the promotional CD “Metabiosis”, released in March 2002. For the titlesong, a video came out in September 2002.
