Additional Information:

WHEEL was formed in 2006 under the name ETHERIAL SLEEP by Marcus and Arkadius, former members of the Power Metal Band AVANITAS from Dortmund, and Benjamin, former member Dortmund's Thrashers McDEATH.

The common goal of the trio was to create old school, heavy, emotional music different from their former bands and so traditional Doom Metal was the only logical consequence.

In 2008, after several rehearsals with more or less talented drummers, Cazy joined and guitarist Timo finally completed the line-up for the first time ever.

ETHEREAL SLEEP then changed their name to WHEEL because they felt more comfortable with a shorter, more concise name.

In early 2009 WHEEL recorded a two track demo in their rehearsal room which led to a multi album deal with Eyes Like Snow. During that time Timo left the band and subsequently Ben took over both lead & rhythm guitars for the album recording.

Now that the album is about the be released WHEEL are looking to play some live gigs and perhaps find a new second guitarist to complete their live and possibly studio line-up..

The vinyl version comes with heavy, UV-lacquered Gatefold jacket & full colour cardboard inner sleeve for the 12" + bonus 7" with a brilliant cover version of the Roky Erickson classic "Night Of The Vampire"!
