Taken / Bio

ING: Taken are born in 2011 through the union of four guys who met at school. During 2011 they made a demo, with four songs that have a variety of musical genres from Heavy metal to 80's ballads.

In 2012 they made their second and last ep with the old line-up, which was composed by Matteo (voice & guitar), Davide (guitar), Tommaso (bass), Michael (drums). In this ep, called "That scream, my body, your rage" we can find a heavier sound and more technical songs than the previous.

Then in 2013, the singer Matteo, due to personal reasons, left the band.

After a pause, the band returned to activity with the new singer (who is also Tommaso's twin), and in July their new ep called "As Dream Dies" has been published. Through this new work we can notice a clear shift: the new influences are from bands like Trivium, Lamb of god, Bullet for my valentine, so their songs are characterised with more technical passages and scream voices.

Actually the band is shooting their first official video, Big Brother.
