AN unique sound signature
After many years playing in different rock bands, guitarrist & singer Alex Hoff met with his old time friend, bass player & drummer Ricardo Amaro, to talk about ideas and songs that had been on their minds for quite a long time, but had never come to life. They both agreed that in order to fulfill this mission not only they would have to concentrate on their own instruments, they would have to find “THE drummer and THE lead singer" as they put it.
By the end of 2013, drummer Daniel Gohn and lead singer Chris Hoff got so excited with the demos and the concept of the band, that they joined the team with recording sessions starting soon thereafter. Later in 2015, guitar player Helio Pavan also joined the band.
Major fans of the hard rock and heavy metal golden age of the 80s - but also attentive to the latest modern releases of the genre - the wolf pack envisioned an unique band with top-notch songs and lyrics that would combine the cream of the crop influences from the likes of Scorpions, Twisted Sister, Ratt, Van Halen, Def Leppard, Alice Cooper, Winger, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Queensrÿche, Mötley Crüe and KISS, among many others.
With different music backgrounds, the band blends the experience of a jazz rock drummer, hard rock guitar players, a thrash metal bass player and a metal/industrial lead singer into a known to the heart, but also unique sound signature.
HÅRD:ON’s tone has been forged with the best instrumental sounds and powerful vocals that shall get everyone excited from the get-go.
With this mission, the band HÅRD:ON was born.
