There are two registered bands with the name Panic Room:

1) A rock band from Wales/England, fronted by vocalist Anne-Marie Helder.
2) A six-piece alt-metal/hard rock band from Parma, Italy.


PANIC ROOM are a UK rock band who released their debut album in 2008.
Fronted by female English vocalist Anne-Marie Helder, the band have now released 3 albums.
The band is based in Swansea, South Wales, while its 5 members come from Wales, England and Singapore.


* Anne-Marie Helder - vocals, rhythm guitar, percussion (+ songwriter)
* Jonathan Edwards - keyboards (+ songwriter)
* Paul Davies - lead guitar
* Yatim Halimi - bass guitar
* Gavin Griffiths - drums


PANIC ROOM formed in 2005/6 when Jonathan Edwards gathered the musicians together for a recording project. Working with a wealth of material he had written and set aside for a new project, he asked Helder, Davies and Griffiths to record with him. The 4 musicians knew each other well from a previous band they had played in together, ‘Karnataka’.
(Karnataka (original line-up) disbanded in 2004 due to personal circumstances, but had previously toured across the UK, Europe and the USA.)

The first Panic Room project took nearly 2 years to record, with recording sessions spread out during that time. The band recorded at Vimana Studios in South Wales, engineered by Peter Charlton (who also contributed some guitar to the recordings).

    Skin was quite a good listen. = ) Maybe my favorite so far from this year, along with To-Mera's Exile.

    I somehow rather like the idea that a band must be "registered".

    You might be waiting a little while for a teaser of the new album, since they haven't actually started recording it yet... ;-) They're quietly confident that they'll have it in the can sometime next year, though, so hopefully we won't be waiting for too long... :-)
