Fentanyl
Fentanyl Bio:

It all started by the end of 2003 when Padja and Pos booked a rehearsal room to muck about with some ideas. Both boys were heavily into speed, thrash and death metal, and wanted to put some kind of tribute together for the legendary Carcass. One thing led to another and the result turned out to be several crude recordings of the song "Spasm of Death", with Padja on drums/guitar and Pos on bass/vocals. Playing the tape back to Padja's long time friend Dmitri, it put a smile on the sturdy guys face, and made him decide to take over the drum kit once more.

Padja, born in Slovenia (former Yugoslavia), picked up the guitar at an early age, and lacking any metal scene at the time, was influenced by post-punk bands like Zabranjeno Pusenje. When metal broke thru it was no surprise that he soon mixed his punky style with that of foreign bands like Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax.

Dmitri & Padja met at an early age in Holland, where they became a solid duo and played in various bands but never quite finding their hard-sought sound. Enter Pos, who came from down under, and another big fan of the metal scene. The newly founded threesome started rehearsing and writing more songs, and as it turned out they steered somewhat away from the initial death/grind idea towards more catchy riffs in the good old 80's thrash and speed metal style.

A change of scene brought the three into Pos and Eddie's old neighbourhood. The house they'd been raised in and most adjoining houses as well had been vacated, and proved to be a fruitful albeit short-lived practice area. The area no longer exists, and is sometimes tentatively referred to as "ground zero". But from there on Eddie started to show his ugly face more often than not, so it was decided for the sake of peace to give the man a job.

The band now had a lead-singer, more material got written and it was decided to start on the debut album before anything else. So that's when "Feeble Existence" started to take shape. The guys also found a name to call themselves, fashioned after one of the more epic songs on the disc. They decided to take on the whole enchilada themselves and recorded, mixed and mastered it, and came up with the album cover and layout.

A self-made band with some of the great names in the metal history as their main influences, the fierce quartet is ready to let the world know they've come a long way in the past 3 years, and "Feeble Existence" is the ultimate proof.
