Blooms of Vanity from Germany can claim to have a classical rising from the ashes story. From what they built up since originally founded in 2003 only ruins remained. In the beginning of 2007 Drummer Tob and guitarist Chris found themselves within these ruins, the two brothers being the only ones left still believing in what they did. The studio for upcoming recordings had been already booked for months, songs of convincing potential had been written but the day to enter the studio was closing in without having a complete band. The situation changed only few weeks before the scheduled recordings for the full length debut A light burns in the gate of hope. Alex (guitar) and Pete (bass) joined, Chris became the lead singer. The new guys turned out to be the friends you need in a band and the 4 piece unity, thats now Blooms of Vanity was ready to take off. The pressure transformed into positive aggression and within two weeks the tracks of A light burns in the gate of hope, a furious emotional blend of Metal/Metalcore and Alternative elements, had been recorded. The results scattered any remaining doubt in their own potential. With the debut, thats evidence to what they have achieved in just a short time they are now eager to soar above the ruins forever. For this year the ambitious guys have further plans. A videoclip with the Breakdance-Sensation Metal Girl from Belgium (clips for Ed Stone Rockwear and Blinded Colony from Sweden) is being shot and released in summer. Apart from other gigs the first german tour along with fast rising newcomers Stigmafrom Italy is about to be on schedule.
