Canadian classic metal band IVORY KNIGHT has announced its reunion after eight-year break. The band is currently in rehearsals and intends to return to the live stage first before deciding on whether or not to resume writing and recording.
IVORY KNIGHT's second full-length album, titled "Unconscience", was released in January 2005. The CD was mixed and mastered by the Jeff Waters of ANNIHILATOR, and featured artwork by Gyula Havanscak.
During the late 1980s, IVORY KNIGHT was a name familiar to metal fans who witnessed the bands exciting live performances at venues including Ottawa's Barrymores, Porter Hall, and (now-defunct) Roxannes in Hull. The band shared the stage with many great acts including SWORD and BLACKSTAR (featuring John Ricci and Jacques Belanger of EXCITER). The band recorded a demo, "Voices In Your Nightmare", which received excellent reviews from all over the world. The band broke up in 1990 due to musical differences. Founding member John Devadasan Perinbam reformed the band in late 1999 with drummer George Nesrallah, bassist Steve Mercer, and guitarist Rob Gravelle. The group, featuring the soaring, powerful, passionate vocals of Perinbam and the virtuosity of Gravelle, recorded an album, "Up From The Ashes", which received excellent reviews from fans and critics throughout the world. The band has played many shows in the Ottawa area including the Rainbow and Café Dekcuf.
