In 2006 Michael a talented bass player got through to Shane on the phone an acquainted at the time. They had met through music and had plans about founding a band. The time was right to start a serious hard working band that wants to make it. They shared the life-long dream of reaching the public through music and doing it 24/7. Michael had met a drummer and they were forming a band. They needed a singer and a crazy guitar player. Kenneth, an old friend of the drummer, was the first choice for them to play the lead guitars and Michael saw the opportunity to call Shane and get the rock rolling. In no time the band was on their feet and rocking the house. They decided to hit the studio as quick as possible. They had been playing some cover songs and were determined to give life to some original material that Shane had in his backpack for a few years. Michael had pulled some strings and soon some label folks were interested. The fact that Shane had performed on national TV made the whole deal a bit more saucy. As the studio session progressed the virgin problems of every new started band showed its nasty teeth. The drummer was replaced due to pressure. Ultimately Krger became the wheel that would share the weight of creating this band. Now the tracks were laid and the future could begin. The sound and intensity of this band will vividly complement the art of rock through diversity and experience. The potential of an upcoming revolutionary tribute to rock has begun

At the age of fourteen he got his own guitar and started playing blues-rock mostly in bands. Soon he saw himself rocking at parties and making the public wild with his passionate and crazy guitar style. In the year 2000 he established a band and finally got somewhere with original guitar riffs and solos. The style was getting harder and he was attracted to the heavier sounds of rock guitar. The band was successful but lasted only a few years. Growing in talent and in the need of such musicians Kenneth played with the cream of the local music scene. But still his need for hard rocking music was not satisfied. In the search for new challenges Kenneth luckily stumbled over an old friend playing the drums in a new started band which was in search of a gifted guitar player.

From: Nustrup, a little village in
His real name is Hans Krger. He was born and raised on a farm in Nustrup. He was an average normal well-behaved kid until he stumbled upon music closer defined rock and metal. Currently he lives in Haderslev and is a trainee as an industrial programmer. He started to play drums at the age of twelve but stopped again at 14 only to make a comeback the tender age of 15 He played in different bands and varied his style through the years. In the beginning it was mostly blues and pop but through time he evolved to play heavier and at one point he was thrashing the drums in a band where the art death metal was at its finest. At the age of twenty he bought his first real drum kit which is the Sonor set on which this demo is recorded. At the age of 25 he met Shane and started the band Dhiman. This band had a lot of success until it broke up in 2004. After that he planned on having an early drum retirement but had to face the fact that life pretty much sucked when not playing music. To his fortune Shane has started another band and they were missing a drummer. The rest is future. Krger would put any drum machine to shame with his extraordinary tight style. His overview exceeds his instrument and makes it thus more powerful and reliable. He is PHONs musical equivalent of a well-tuned powerful freight train. He gives the music an edge which is vital for PHONs distinctive style.
