PyroxeneAlthough our band Pyroxene was first founded on the 28th of December, it wasn't untill 2014 the new lineup with Kristjan Hacin – Kiku (solo guitar), Andraž Kumar – Žaži (rhythm guitar), Matevž Hrovat – Mate (bass guitar), Jan Tehovnk – Teho (vocal) and Domen Cizej (drums) arose from the primordial fire and became the band we know today. Our repertoar stretches from blues elements and hard rock to heavy metal, whereas we define ourselves as »solid metal«.
In the year 2012 we began our first concert season, during which we had quite a lot of concerts in different locations, such as Metelkova City, the annual gathering of MC Firestarters in Vinica, on Kongress square etc. The true climax of the year was a concert, where we performed as the opening act to the band Elvis Jackson in MKC Komplex in the region Koroška. In 2013 we were also hosted on the online radio Radio Turk and we began to cooperate in a side project with the Center of Activities Fužine (CAF).
The same year we performed on the audition for the festival Vičstock, which was hosted by club Cirkus in Ljubljana. After that we also performed on Turkstival and Rock'n'roll ''All you can hear'' Požrtija.
In the year 2014 we won the band contest on the Rock&Walk festival, as far as our own organisation is concerned we put together a concert called Pržan se prži in the club Pržan (Ljubljana). We were also chosen by studio Evolucija to record a single, furthermore we played on several other concerts in Ljubljana and the rest of Slovenia.
At the begining of the year 2015 we had concerts in the club Patriot in Novo Mesto, soon afterwards in Orto Bar within the organisation Kadilnica Of Death, and at the end of February we were also hosted on radio Europa 05.
In late May we departed on our first international tour in the Netherlands, where we had three very successful concerts in HPC in Den Haag, Waterhole in Amsterdam and Rock Cafe Bone in Haarlem. Shortly after our tour we performed in Hard Place in Zagreb and on our biggest venue so far, Rock Batuje festival in July.
