Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Mordikaii is a Melodic Death Metal band created by Swedish guitarist Bobby Tancred. Its musical history goes many years back in time.
The idea started taking form with this constilation in the summer of 2009 when Jason Mercury (ex-Outloud) and Bobby started to talk about doing something together in the music kinda way. Then Jason took the oppurtunity to accept the offer to become the bassplayer of Mordikaii when he was asked by Bobby to do it.
After some disscussions Jason introduced Bobby to Fabio Caruso (lead singer of As Memory Dies). And thrue Jason we recruited Nikos Parotidis drummer of Minuetum , who were a solid choice on drums.
In less than 6 months the ideas and compositions came to life and became powerful songs.
The band at this point had a big number of compositions ready and recorded and had already chosen the ones that will appear in the debut album entitled "Awakening Aeons”.
Members of Mordikaii is :
Fabio Caruso - Vocals
Bobby Tancred - Guitars
Jason Mercury - Bass
Nikos Parotidis - Drums
Fabian Prezja - Keyboards
