Euphoreon - Biography




Euphoreon is a German/New Zealand metal band, originally formed as a solo project band by Matt Summerville from New Zealand in 2009. Musically, Euphoreon has strong Scandinavian and European melodic metal influences, combining predominantly harsh vocals with strong melodic hooks.
A home demo called 'Before The Blackened Sky' followed soon after in March of 2009, gaining positive feedback from the community. Matt continued to write songs with the hope of finding someone to produce a full-length album. In November 2009 he, by chance (or fate) came across the very man for the job.

Eugen Dodenhoeft from Far Beyond, Germany, joined the project as producer, guitarist, and second vocalist - in the process giving Euphoreon new depth and professionalism to move forward. Hard work followed over the next year, writing and recording the first full-length and self-titled album, overcoming a lot of obstacles and taking Euphoreon to the next level. Also lending his playing to the album was Patrick Stäudle, on Piano.

The debut Album 'Euphoreon' was released on the 30th of April 2011. It can be downloaded on iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp. Physical Digipaks can be ordered via Bandcamp. Furthermore there is a free download of the whole album available on their website.
