Two Sides Of A Coin (CD)
PYRACANDA formed in Koblenz, Germany in 1987-just a group of local friends out to have a good time and jam out some thrashing heavy metal. The five-song Welcome to Crab-Louse City demo quickly materialized in 1988, but it would only be a few short months before Rolf Koch (bass) and Dirk Pu?tzfeld (vocals) were replaced by Dieter Wittbecker and Hansi Nefen, respectively-rounding out the lineup founded by guitarists Sven Fischer and Dennis Vaupel, and Elmar Gehenzig behind the kit. Still teenagers at the time, PYRACANDA'S approach rapidly progressed, gaining the interest of hungry young label No Remorse Records (BLIND GUARDIAN, GRINDER, HEAVENS GATE, etc.), who landed the group at Ege Sound Studio with producer Armin Sabol (Rage, Sinner, etc.) for their debut full-length, Two Sides of a Coin. Released in early-1990, the result took the band's fast and aggressive thrash with bits of melody and traditional heavy metal influences to a new level, presented with infinitely stronger production for a much more powerful overall delivery. Despite a lack of concrete touring, shows supporting BLIND GUARDIAN, TANKARD, ACCU§ER, and RAGE followed; and the album was well-received by the German metal press. In November of 2010, PYRACANDA even celebrated the 20th anniversary of Two Sides of a Coin by reuniting for a successful one-off live show at hometown club Dreams.
