Emerald Sun

Artist Bio

Formed in 1998, in Thessaloniki, Greece, EMERALD SUN has since then performed live numerous times becoming an extremely sought-after live act. Past performances included their participation at festivals such as March Metal Day, Metal Healing, Maximum Rock Fest and others. The band’s excellent two demos led to the release of their first full length in 2007 (“Escape from Twilight”) which was later released in Japan with exclusive bonus material.

“Regeneration” includes ten new tracks of utterly brilliant melodic heavy/power metal! It was recorded, mixed and mastered at Maranis Studios in Backnang, Germany by Vagelis Maranis (ex-Sanvoisen) who also lends his voice on the 12-minute epic “Fantasmagoria.” Also included as a CD bonus is a killer cover of 80’s pop classic “Holding out for a Hero.”

Lineup: Stelios “Theo” Tsakrides – vocals • Johnnie Athanasiadi – guitar • Teo Savage - guitar • Fotis “Sheriff” Toumanides – bass • Jim Tsakrides – keyboards • Bill “Wicked” Kanakis – drums
