    Info:


    HG was formed in 1998 in Varese (north Italy) from the ashes of
    local minor bands as Slam and Overlook ,the band
    was influenced by acts as Angra,Kamelot,Stratovarius,
    Labyrinth etc. ; they cut their teeth playing live in the
    club circuit and in 1999 they won Bustok (a rock contest/
    battle of the bands) in Busto Arsizio,the prize was the
    recording of this demo cd...the self titled cd demo was released
    in January 2000 and gained good reviews but soon Daniele Persoglio
    left the band to join the more famous and successful Drakkar while
    Roberto Greco pursued different interests,both were immediately replaced
    by Alessandro Quadrelli (bass,former Valkyrion) and Luca Franceschini
    (vocals,former Dark Swan),the lyrics changed from italian to english and
    the sound became more powerful and less prog metal oriented; many gigs
    followed opening for bands like Extrema,Drakkar,Skylark etc. and this
    new line up recorded another demo cd in 2002 (Shiver to hell) but they never
    found a label to release an album and disbanded around 2004/2005,
    Quadrelli,Petocchi and Mognoni in 2011 formed Maya,a symphonic/prog
    metal band that released a cd in 2015 (The Prophecy is Broken).
