RADIANT play the kind of music that goes straight to your ear! The five-member hard rock band from Northern Germany was founded by Herbie Langhans (Avantasia, Voodoo Circle) together with Flo Gottsleben and Markus Beck (both ex. Seventh Avenue) in 2014. Manni Spalka on drums and Carsten Stepanowicz on lead guitar complete the lineup of the band.
RADIANT's music is complex but catchy, and throws you right back to the true hard rock sound of the 70s and 80s. The band’s trademark is the exceptional and powerful voice of Herbie Langhans, who is known for his work in productions, such as Avantasia, Voodoo Circle, Sinbreed or Beyond The Bridge. Moreover, a virtuoso bass playing à la Billy Sheehan, powerful drums, polyphonic guitars and top-class solos characterize the unique RADIANT sound.
The name RADIANT already shows a musical reorientation of the former melodic metal band members of Seventh Avenue. The idea: more rock, less metal, more hooks, less speed – but with the same passion and energy for music as before.
Just now, the band has completed their first studio album. The members developed the basic structures of all songs together as a band. Their focus during the songwriting: catchy riffs, songs which are fun to perform on stage, and of course – rock'n'roll! In the end, the variety of ideas and influences of each band member has created an incomparable mix for the first studio album. Thus, the unique RADIANT sound occupies a category of its very own.
