2009: The idea for a symphonic metal band had just came in mind. The next step was to write songs, find members and start jamming in the studio, starting this new project. The first two songs were ”My Fall” and ”Forever Slave”. The second one was rejected too soon, when new songs were created, that were closer to the musical style that the band wanted to follow. At the end of 2009 the band line-up was Evelyn – female vocals , Jon Soti – male vocals , Frangiskos – guitars , Gus – keyboards , Renos – drums, Dimitris – session bass-player, and the name was Fallen Arise. In December of 2009 Fallen Arise gave the 1st show in Athens.

2010: This year begins with some changes in band’s line up. Renos left the band for personal reasons. Chris Stratigos (Sorrowful Angels – Secret Illusion) would be the man behind the drum-kit for the two following shows in Corfu (6 March 2010) & Athens (7 March 2010). There is also another session musician in bass guitar, Nick (Wolfcry). Both shows were awesome and the band was really excited. One month later (April 2010) two members joined to complete the family, Thanos – drums & Maria – bass guitar and then, one of the most important gig came. Fallen Arise would be the opening act for XANDRIA, in Athens (8th of May). The show was amazing and the crown very warm with the band. Later in the summer of 2010 it was time for Fallen Arise to recording their first EP. ”ETERNAL” was recorded in CFN Studios by Dion Christodoulatos and at the same time the band gave another show in Kastoria (3rd GOLDEN APPLE FESTIVAL) in the 14th of July. The last show for 2010 was a year after the first show (18th of December). Same place, beautiful people, amazing night!!

2011: This year begins very powerfull for the band.”Eternal” EP is released and the band gives a great party with lots of friends in RAINBOW ROCK BAR in the 4th of February. ”Eternal” EP received very good reviews from Greek and other European webzines and also from Greek METAL HAMMER (8/10). The first and the last show for 2011 was in 10th ROCK n AID FESTIVAL with INNERWISH, SCAR OF THE SUN & KEADO MORES. In the summer of 2011 the band decides to enter the studio for the 1st full album. Unfortunately, shortly before the beginning of the recordings, Evelyn left the band. The reason was the completely different philosophy with the other band members. A few days later, the auditions for the new singer had just begun while the band was recording the songs for the 1st album. For a while Milagros Caceres Diaz was the new singer for Fallen Arise, but once again things didn’t work out. So, Fallen Arise and Milagros took separate ways. So did Jon.

2012: The new year has begun very strong. Τhe recording sessions for the 1st album go better and better and the feelings are more than optimistic. We are very proud of the collaboration with DEVASOUNDZ STUDIOS, as also with Fotis Benardo & Christos Antoniou (SEPTIC FLESH), Thimios Krikos (INNERWISH). We also have another member in the family, our new singer Spyla! The fall of 2012 (September 29), Fallen Arise gave a live performance at Gagarin 205, supporting Moonspell’s live appearance in Athens. It was an awesome gig and Fallen Arise play in front of nearly 500 people.

2013:Mixing and mastering of the new album are in progress and goes better and better everyday.We have the great honour to colaborate with Devasoundz Studios and Fotis Benardo(Septic Flesh). On March 9th, it was time for an other live gig. Fallen Arise played on the stage of An Club, as one of the main support bands on Leaves Eyes’s live appearance. What an awesome night!! Finally in May of 2013 the new album is ready and the band is searching for a label for the release of the new album.In June of 2013 Fallen Arise welcome two new members.Aggelos Mal(bass) took Maria’s place,when the second,for personal reasons left the band and,after 1,5 year of colaboration with many session male vocalists,the band welcomes Christos Kontoulis as the new male vocalist of the band.Also in the summer of 2013 the band came to an aggrement with Noiseheadrecords (AUS).In November 23rd 2013,”Ethereal” released.The same day,Noisehead records,published the first official video for the song ”Eternity”.Few months after the release,we have great feelings. We received and still receive a very positive feedback and we are very pleased for that.The least we can do is to say a huge ”thanks” to all of you,for your endless love and support to us and to our music.

2014:It was a great year for the band.”Ethereal” debut album received very good feedback from media.The band gave very successfull gigs all over Greece.The most importants were at Noisehead Festival Vol.1 which took place in Athens (@Kyttaro Club),UndeRock Festival at Tripolis and last the band was the opening act for OUTLOUD’S gig at November 16th 2014.After that,Fallen Arise entered the studio again for a new album.

2015:Almost 2 years have passed since the release of our debut album “Ethereal” and we thought it was high time to go on with our sophomore full-length. This work recounts a story that takes us back in time in the Victorian era of the 19th century(1837-1901), presenting us the decay of the human body and mind through fiction.
Fully satisfied as we were with our collaboration with Devasoundz Studios, we chose to work again in the same place where the recordings of our first album occurred, teaming up again with FotisBenardo(SixforNine, ex-Septic Flesh, ex-Chaostar), ThimiosKrikos(Innerwish), Thanos Jan(Inactive Messiah).
A very special and important moment for us while creating our new materialwas the collaboration with an ensemble of 40 renowned musicians from the National Opera, the Athens State Orchestra, the NERIT Orchestra and the Piraeus Concert Band. The orchestral recordings and the mixing sessions, took place in Zero Gravity Studios by DimitrisDimitriadis.This new album accompanined with a new record contract! ROAR (Rock Of Angels Records) is our new home!The release date for our new LP is October 23 (GR) and October 30 (EU).

2016: It’s the most active year for the band! We have a lot of amazing gigs in Europe, like ARTmania festival (RO) , sharing the stage with some great bands and we met a lot of amazing people out there. Some line-up changes were necessary for the band, but, we are still here !! Adeline Over Europe Tour 2016 continues in October and we can’t wait to meet you all on the road! Stay tuned and Rock on!!
