Selefice

Biography

SELEFICE is a Greek metal band formed in 1990 in Athens and are part of the legendary era of the Greek extreme metal scene of the early '90s along with bands like Rotting Christ, Septicflesh, Acid Death, Nightfall, Piranha, Horrified, Septicemia, Epidemic and many more. SELEFICE shared the stage with most of these bands.

In 1991 SELEFICE released their "Selefice" demo including 3 songs. This demo sold over 1000 copies worldwide via tape-trading. At the same time the band appeared on stage as much as possible at shows and metal festivals especially in their hometown Athens. At the end of 1993 SELEFICE released their only full album until today entitled "Where Is The Heaven" in vinyl format from the Greek Molon Lave Records and on CD from the German label Soundphaze International.

In 1994 due to several circumstances the band abruptly split up.

Over the years SELEFICE gained a cult status and "Where Is The Heaven" was considered by many as one of the hidden diamonds of the Greek extreme metal scene and an album ahead of its time. Despite the passing of almost 24 years many people were looking forward for a reunion growing the band's name again in the underground.

In 2015 Floga Records re-released the SELEFICE demo in both vinyl and CD format along with with other legendary demos of that golden era in a compilation entitled "Long Live The Past". At the same time 2 of the band's basic and founding members Miltos J. (guitar/vocals) and Petros M. (guitar/backing vocals) felt the urge to reactivate the band.

At the end of 2017, this was finally materialised when the SELEFICE line up was completed with the addition of 2 new members: Manos M. (bass/backing vox) and Vaggelis V. (drums). Both of them have been active in the underground since the early 90s and involved in bands like Necromancy, Atavism, Internal Decadence and more. Before the first half of 2018 Floga Records had re-released "Where is the Heaven" full length in CD/LP.

After intensively rehearsing for several months, SELEFICE appeared in local live shows in their hometown Athens in 2018 and shared the stage with bands like Piranha, Daylight Misery, Show Your Face, Silent Winter and Speedrush to name a few. In the meantime, many new songs were composed.

In fall 2018 SELEFICE entered S.I.A. Recordings Studios with Savvas Betinis of Acid Death behind the console and mixing board to record “Where is the Heaven” successor, a MLP/MCD entitled “I Met a God”. This mini album features 4 tracks, 3 of them capturing the band’s best material written in the period 2017-2018 and the essence of the band’s today’s sound, while the 4th track is an unreleased and never recorded before song that dates back to 1994! All songs have been performed in live shows and the reactions have been more than positive!

At the same period the MVP Project released Selefice - This Death Is Back (2018) | Documentary, which can be found on YouTube.

“I Met a God” was released on May 17th digitally via Bandcamp and YouTube and as a self released CD. The promotion effort began with a headline show at Crow Club – Athens last June. The band also performed at the ROOM OF DOOM fest last October. In both shows shared the stage with bands like Piranha, Drama Noir, Clouds, Shattered Hope, Soul Dissolution etc.

And the journey has just begun ... BEWARE!
