|HEATHEN FORAY BIOGRAPHY|
StoryHEATHEN FORAY GENRES
The Story of „Heathen Foray“ begins in autumn of 2005 in the city of Deutschlandsberg (Styria/Austria). After the collapse of their old band, Jürgen Brüder (Ex-Plethora) and Daniel Koinegg (Ex-Plethora) decided, in a night full of alcohol, to try it again with a new project.
Soon the two guitarists began to compose new material and to arrange new songs. But this time, they wanted to set their main aim to the quality of the songs. The songs needed to be technical challenging but also very melodious sounding. So the two of them where working a long time on the songs to make them what they should be. After they finished the songs, they began to search for band members.
In Mai 2006, Daniel quit the band. He decided for personal reasons to leave the project. Soon after Daniel had quit, a more than fitting replacement was found. Safet Pehlic (Arctic Light) replaced Daniel.
Shortly after Safet joined the band, a new man for the vocals was found. Robert Schroll brought his special character into the band and created the vocals.
Just a few weeks after they completed the line up, Heathen Foray could play a full set of their own songs and began to look for gigs.
The musical style of Heathen Foray is hard to define. Some people say they play Viking-Metal with strong Power-Metal influence. Others say that they play Melodic-Death-Metal with Folk influences. We confess…we don’t know it ourselves. But one thing is sure: The style of Heathen Foray lies somewhere between those extremes!
