Path of Destiny emerged from a little Heavy Metal-project in February 2007 and went through several lineup-changes in the past years. Since 2012 the band exists in its current form except of the relatively new member Phil (Drums), who joined the band back in December 2016. Since then, Hof (Saale) in northern Franconia is the new "rehearsal-home" of the band.
The 5 band-members from Franconia/Thuringia (Germany) are ever since known to cook up their own “metal meal” consisting of heavy melodic death metal-riffs and a pinch of symphonic influences. The songs add up the best parts of both music styles to a brutal but still melodic unity. Along with an orchestral background and fast drumming, two-voiced guitar lines and catchy hooklines help the band to stand out amongst others.
Amongst the biggest achievements so far count several festival-performances (e.g. Metalfest 2011, Rock im Betonwerk 2013) as well as the labeldeal with Apostasy Records in 2016 that made the release of the second album “Dreams in Splendid Black” perfect.
Up on stage, Path of Destiny are characterised by their highly atmospheric presence and charismatic interaction with the crowd. The band-members always take care of good “metaltainment” by giving their crowd’s ears something special to listen to and their eyes something interesting to look at.
