Based out of Budapest Hungary Leander Rising's 14 song debut album Heart Tamer delivers a whole new form of aggression, passion and ferocity. Caustic yet eloquent in their cathartic delivery, the band's debut infuses a molten mix of influences that erupted with force.
Originally a solo project for its namesake Leander Köteles, but his first video for the song Bound To Belong created an internet buzz throughout Hungary and caught the attention of Attila Vörös, a young and well-known guitarist, who has also toured worldwide with Seattle metal band Nevermore, Attila reached out to Leander via e-mail and their collaboration began. In the beginning Attila only came on to do some guest solos but as time went on they found their true sound was together.
Leander Rising is-Leander Köteles - singer, songwriter, lyricist, keys & bass, Attila Vörös - guitarist, songwriter , Jozzy - guitarist, co-songwriter, Bela Budai – drummer.
US touring news coming soon.
