Biography

There are 2 bands with the same name, a German Black Metal and an Italian Power Metal band (which would tour with Rhapsody over Europe on 2011)

1) The German Black Metal one - man project by F. Nachzehrer - everything (Mensch Schmerz Interaktion, Moriturus/Regnum, Torch of War (Ger), Weltenkampf)

2) Italian band (the photo is from that band):
The Vexillum born in Pisa in September 2004, from an idea of Michele “Firespit” Gasparri (Voice and Guitar) and Luca “Akira” Torelli (Guitar) with the name of Shadow Vexillum. Just after, Alessandro “AC” Cariboni at the Drums and Luca “Liuck” Masi at the Bass Guitar join the band.

After some concerts they offer to Luca’s girlfriend, Rita, to be the female Voice of the band with Michele as the male Voice. With this line up the Shadow Vexillum record their first Demo CD, “Tales” made of 7 tracks, during 2005 winter season. While recording, a new singer, Dario Vallesi, join the band to replace Michele, that preferred to focus only on his Guitar.

In the summer of 2006, Akira and Rita decide to leave the band for personal reasons. Nevertheless, the Shadow Vexillum are still playing live, supported sometimes by the Keyboards of Alex Lucatti (Vision Divine).

In January 2007 Dario, Firespit, Liuck and AC enter the Head Studio of Prato to record “Neverending Quest”, self-produced EP that features distinguished guest stars from the italian metal scene: for the whole album they have Alex Lucatti’s Keyboards (Vision Divine); “Rising from the Ruins” solo battle is between Firespit and Federico Puleri (Vision Divine) and the artbook of the CD is devolved upon Riccardo Iacono (ex Domine). While recording, they take the decision to change the name of the band in Vexillum.

    With Elvenking being not so good lately I'd say these guys are the best Folk/Power metal band currently. The new album is some great stuff.

    Jesus Christ. I hear a lot of potential in this band, and it has only this much scrobbles? This is DragonForce (without the unnecessary noodling), Freedom Call and Elvenking in a package dammit.

    I love the type of music they play! I saw them supporting Rhapsody of Fire too and I was so pleasantly surprised by their performance full of energy and awesomeness! ^^ They're such an amazing band, their album "The Wandering Notes" is great! =)

    Very odd band...I happened to acquire a copy of their "Templum Interior" demo tape for free when I did a large tape order. Pretty good stuff, kind of reminds me of the later Black Funeral albums and Darkspace.
