Acron formed in 1994 with the band name Icon and the following line-up:
Grey (Vocal and Bass), Davide (Guitar), Mirko (Guitar) and Derrick
(Drums). Since 1994 they played many gigs in Italy and Switzerland and
in 1995 they recorded the first demo tape entitled "Reality" that was
very well reviewed by all the specialized magazine, especially in Italy
After a lot of live activity the band recors the
new demo-tape "Echoes From Unreal" which sells over 1000 copies around
Europe especially at the live shows.
Finally in June 1997 the
band recorded the MCD "The Life…The Death" a work which underline the
passage from gothic metal to a sort of progressive metal with influences
of bands like Dream Theater, Jethro Tull, Paradise Lost and Symphony X,
however the band maintain the peculiar characteristic of their sound :
sweetness of their melody mixed to the Grey’s aggressive vocals.
In September 1997 Derrick is replaced by Sig (Drums) and in Feb. 1998
the band sign a contract with Elevate Records; in the same time the band
change the name in Acron.
‘Labyrinth Of Fears’ is the first
Acron’s album, and the sound is an aggressive mix between symphonic
metal, Power and progressive with a touch of gothic.
