Swiss band APPEARANCE OF NOTHING was founded 2004 by Pat Gerber (Vocals/Guitar), Yves Lüthi (Drums), Omar Cuna (Bass) and Marc Petralito (Keys). After a short experimental period the band began to write their own songs. After the first self-produced demo in 2005, the first album „Wasted Time“ was released, in 2008 and the band engaged Markus Teske as producer who worked together with famous bands such as Vanden Plas and Symphony X. What we have with this highly acclaimed release is a very symphonic and highly enjoyable sound that brings together the best elements of Dream Theater, Symphony X, Saga and Vanden Plas.
In the years 2008/2009 APPEARANCE OF NOTHING concentrated on playing headliner shows as well as shows as suporting act of GURD and at the Swiss RAW festival in front of 4000 people on the main stage.
The 2010 album "All Gods are Gone" has a considerably more aggressive and more modern attitude. Not only the sound but also the collaboration with vocalist Dan Swanö (ex Edge of Sanity/Nightingale) provide a further highlight.
In 2011 the band parts ways with longtime drummer Yves Lüthi. After a small summer break the band gets together with the excellent drummer Ronnie Wolf who fills in as the new drummer.
2013 is the provisionally most successful year in the band history. As support act for Circus Maximus on their extensive European tour, APPEARANCE OF NOTHING is, at least now, known to a wider audience and have their loyal fans all over the world in the meantime.
With their third long player "A New Beginning", APPEARANCE OF NOTHING show us their adult side and they have definitely found their own and unique style. The album continues where the predecessor "All Gods Are Gone" ceases and the significant increase is clearly to recognize and to hear. Exciting songwriting, successful progressive arrangements, hard powerful Metal riffs, decent excursions into the Death Metal world, exceptional keyboard work and clear vocals paired with fat growls will provide for the ultimate attention. With the support of Markus Teske, who has mastered the album, a real blow has succeeded and the steady development of a Prog Metal unit gets a temporary climax. The inexorable triumphal march to a true genre size can not be stopped.
Highly recommended choice for fans of Symphony X, Dream Theater, Nevermore, Redemption and all sophisticated Progressive Metal lovers.
