GREYDON FIELDS from Essen, Germany,
is a Heavy Metal band founded in 2008 by guitarist Gregor Vogt and drummer Riccardo Vinti and was initially meant to be a project rather than a band.
After initial difficulties in putting together a stable line up, the band was eventually completed by the joining of singer / rhythm guitarist Patrick Donath in 2012 and bass player Jochen Klapheck in 2013.
“Room with a View“ (EP 2013)
Then the recordings for the self-produced debut album “Room with a View“ could begin. The EP got a lot of metal heads enthused within a short time. The CD contains six diverse songs, reflecting the various musical influences of the band. Thrash metal elements were skillfully conjoined with classic hard rock riffs. A number of live performances gave the band some public exposure within and beyond their home Ruhr valley.
“The God Machine“ (2015)
In August 2014, previous singer Patrick was replaced by Volker Mostert. Within less than one year, the songs for the band’s second album “The God Machine” were written and recorded. “The God Machine” was released in September 2015. With matured songwriting and a vocalist perfectly blending into the band’s sound, Greydon Fields are stronger than ever.
The new line-up and album were taken on the road, including an appearance at the 2016 Turock Open Air.
The New Album (out on 28 April 2018)
Marco Vanga (drums) and Patrick Sondermann (bass) joined the band in September and December 2016, respectively. The new Greydon Fields album was recorded in December 2017 at the ‘Rock & Soul Studio’ in Duisburg with producer and engineer Michael Neugebauer at the controls.
