Sinphonia was originally formed by drummer Dennis Buhl and bassist Thor Jeppesen in the last months of 1998. The idea was to play a progressive metal in the vein of Symphony X, Hexenhaus, and more. In spring 99 guitarist Henrik Rangstrup and keyboardist Jakob Thinggaard entered the band. But it wasnt until singer Monika Pedersen joined in, that the genre of the band started taking real shape. Monika was not at all the voice originally intended for the band, but her talent could not be ignored.
