ormed by Lars Ratz (ex-Zed Yago), Metalium was originally a mislabeled a side project featuring original members Chris Caffery (of Savatage) and Mike Terrana (of Yngwie Malmsteen). Fact of the matter is Metallium was not a side-project at all but a fully actualized metal band, with a style set firmly in the European Metal mold, with a nod to a more American sound in the style of Iced Earth on the early recordings of Millennium Metal (1999) with the line-up of Henning Basse (vocals), Matthias Lange (guitar), Lars Ratz (bass), Chris Caffery (guitar) and Mike Terrana (drums). State Of Triumph (2000) with Terrana replaced by Mark Cross and Caffery replaced byJack Frost leaned more toward the German style of Gamma Ray. With continued flawless execution the band was breaking new ground with a sound that has remained popular in Europe. WithMichael Ehre replacing Cross and Frost gone, they would continue on to release Hero-Nation (2002) and As One (2004).
