HOUNDS - Heavy/Power Metal from Italy.

Hounds is an Heavy/US Power Metal band born in 2016 from an idea of Massimo Ventura (Voice/Guitar),
Marco De Fabianis (Keys) and Cairola Enrico (Drums).
The band was formed at first simply to spend time together and  have fun, with no claim to play gigs
nor to produce any record, with the only goal to reproduce the music of Savatage, historical band that
even today remain the main influence of  Hounds.
Subsequently, when Stefano Paparesta (Bass) and Alessandro Zelferino (Guitar) join the ranks, the band
spontaneously start to develop riffs and ideas to create it's own music, mainly inspired to the masters
of Hard Rock, Heavy Metal and '80s US Power Metal, such as, in addition to the already named Savatage,
Judas Priest and Rainbow.
In autumn 2017 the band decide to record their first work, the EP "Hounds", thus officially marking their
debut in the Turin's Underground metal scene and playing their first live show in November 25th in occasion
of the 10th anniversary of Hateworld.
In 2019 they begin to play their first gigs outside of their hometown: in February 23th at Officine Sonore
in Vercelli along with Alltheniko, and later, during the summer of the same year, the band share the same
stage of some of the most iconical bands of the Italian scene such as Necrodeath, Stato Dassedio and Loculo,
during  Metallo Villano Open Air festival, in Genova.
In October the band leave the Italian soil off to Germany, where they play together with the prog metallers
Sweaping Death.
In 2020 Hounds become part of Punishment 18 Records roster and they finally release their first full-lenght
album "Warrior of Sun".
