REVIEWS OF DANA O'HARA:
"...Local band Dana O’Hara [kick] off the night with a tight, powerful set... Their distinctive blend of melodic death/power metal starts the night off in fine style..."
- Sheila Hamilton/Scott English, Planet Mosh
Drawing their name from the lyrics of the popular Sonata Arctica ballad, Dana O’Hara (day-nah oh hah-rah) formed in early 2009 as a group of friends with the intent of playing music that spoke to them on a personal level.
The five members of the band, while each with their own unique musical upbringing, are united in creating diverse music that not only has a place in their hearts, but which is also without regard for the current music scene and popularity of a certain genre.
Dana O’Hara’s inspiration and influences are an amalgamation of a lifelong passion for music of varying styles. This results in the band combining death metal’s sheer brutality, classic Maiden-esque melodies, and the grandiosity of power metal to form a compelling yet instantly accessible sound.
The band have played/shared the stage with
And many other local bands.
