In Exile live at Sinkkasten Frankfurt


In Exile was born in Bad Vilbel (a small town on the northern borders of Francfort, Germany) in November 2001, when Tobias Neumann and Simon Cerny decided to have a band of their own. Today, six years later, In Exile has six members, that have gained a lot of experience and playskills and composed various great songs.

Our songs are a synthesis of six different sorts of musical taste. With the basis on Melodic- and Heavy Metal, the music also contains influences from Gothic Metal, as well as some progressive parts. And even if the process of creating this songs is sometimes a quite long and hard one, the result always is what we believe to be catchy, emotional and independent metal songs, and one can tell how much fun we have creating and playing music by just listening to them.
Eventually, in December 2005 our first self-produced demo-album entitled Hours Passed In Exile saw the light of day after uncounted painful and arduous hours of work. The 10 songs featured on it cover up our whole works till now, from older tracks such as "Neverlasting", "Sojourn" or "Insanity" up to songs like "Grinning Hunter" or "Flame Of Deceit" that best represent our current style.

At the moment we spend all our time writing songs for the upcoming CD - if we don't enter as many stages as possible to share our music with the world. (And, of course, the new material will instantly be played live!) And we're looking forward to every single one who's going to follow us on our way!
