Age Of Nemesis is a Hungarian progressive metal band that has been around for about 15 years. They started their carreer as Nemesis; there is also an instrumental side project that is called The Godess Of Nemesis, and another side project called Scenes from ’99 that is a Dream Theatre Tribute Band.
I have tried to imagine what it was like back then in Hungary. The Berlin Wall had tumbled down only in 1989, “The West” was far away and hard to reach, there was no money, everything officially was oriented to Russia. And there they go and record a progressive metal album all by themselves and release it to their small world. It is hard to imagine nowadays and for us who have had freedom of travel, capitalism, advanced technology of communication … all the time.
All things considered Age Of Nemesis have gone far and accomplished a lot. They are still active, probably (hopefully) working on a new album and touring.
