False Coda were formed back in 2009 by brothers Andreas milios (Drums) and Vasilis Milios (Guitar). The musical style of the band can be described as progressive metal with influences from many different genres such as progressive rock, heavy metal, fusion, classical music and more. After several lineup changes, Nick Pogas (ex-Shiverspine) became the band’s bass player in 2011 and Lefteris Kapetanios took on the keyboards the same year.
A few months later the line up was completed with the addition of Manos Xanthakis (ex-Agnosia, ex-Celestial Ode) behind the mic and it is with this formation that they recorded their first album entitled ”Closer to the Edge ” with Jens Bogren (Opeth, Symphony X, James LaBrie …), taking over the duties of mastering. In early 2014 the band signed with ”Steel Gallery Records ” while on April the 25th of the same year, this legendary Greek record company released False Coda ‘s debut, receiving very positive reviews from magazines and webzines worldwide.
The promotion of the CD included several concerts in Greece, and it culminated in the appearance in Kytaro – Athens, on November the 29th, where they got the opening act slot, for the Swedish prog /power metal heroes ”Evergrey” in a show in front of 800 people, receiving great feedback. This was the band’s first appearance with Stefanos Zafeiropoulos (ex- Conspiranoia) as the new singer. In 2015 the band finished writing music for their second album scheduled to be released sometime in the summer of 2016. The end of 2016 found the band releasing their album “Secrets and Sins’ which has earned the love of many people, audience and critics. In early 2017, the band is rehearsing for the promotion of “Secrets and Sins” along with their new keyboardist Dimitris Milias (ex-Conspiranoia).
