\r\nSortilege is part of group of bands that started playing heavy metal in France in the early 80s. The band was founded at that time by the Dumont brothers (guitars and drums) under the name “Blood Wave” and when Christian “Zouille” Augustin joined them as a lead singer, they took the name Sortilege (which means spell).
Running Wild… One of the very few names that bound their name with true heavy metal by creating their unique sound, releasing wonderful LPs, performing greatly at their live shows and gaining thousands of fanatic followers and enemies in the same time.\r\n
\r\nThe trademark band of German – and not only – power metal, announced its final split-up a few days ago with a statement from their leader Rock N Rolf (Rolf Kasparek) and filled its fans all over the world and all fans of true heavy metal with grief! Hard times for pirates, aye Captain Rolf?
\r\nWhen we talk about American power metal, we usually think of the great “Ample Destruction” of the titans Jag Panzer and in my opinion – as well as other’s too – very rightfully.
