"The Dragonslayer Project" is a new Austrian melodic Power Metal band, featuring former members of Austrian Power Metal formation "Omega Effect", Daniel and Andi, the former lead vocalist of now defunct Austrian Metal Band "Eleftheria", Siegfried "The Dragonslayer" Samer as well as new members Herb, Freddy and Georg on Bass, Drums and Keys.
The band was formed in summer of 2007, when both lead singer Sigi Samer and lead guitarist Daniel Stockinger were respectively searching for new people to form a power metal band, after Eleftheria had disbanded in mid-2006, and Daniel's band "Omega Effect" was also put on ice after only one gig at Vienna's Planet Music. After severel weeks and months of tedious musician search, finally the band was completed by fall of '07, and regular rehearsals began.
TDP is trying to play live as a regular band, but wishes to deliver a "rock opera" feel on the studio, with plans on including a lot of guest musicians on the upcoming studio records.
We've been in the build-up phase for the last half year or so, but in March 2008 we'll be playing our first live show, followed by some gigs in May and maybe the summer months, but nothing's definite yet.
