Biography:Edit

Italian band STAMINA is the brainchild of guitarist and songwriter Luca Sellitto. Since the beginning the band’s aim has been to create a personal style combining influences from melodic metal, progressive-metal, hard-rock and fusion. STAMINA recorded the first unofficial demo “The demo songs” in February/March 2003, and the second one “Here to stay” in July 2004. Both demos gained stunning reviews on some Italian webzines and magazines and the band started to spread its name, playing live as much as possible in the South of Italy. In September 2006 STAMINA entered the studio to record the debut full-lenght album “Permanent Damage”.It was released by Italian label Heart of Steel records in the end of December 2007 and the response of critic was very good, so that in June 2008 STAMINA were invited to play at the Rock in Flames festival in Salerno(Italy), supporting the Fabio Lione's band(singer of Rhapsody of fire and Vision Divine). In October 2009 the band entered the studio to record the second album "Two of a kind". Danish singers Henrik Brockmann (ex Royal Hunt) and Kenny Lubcke( ex Narita, André Andersen, studio backing vocalist of Royal Hunt)took part on it as very special guests. In August 2010 the band signed a new record deal with German label Ice Warrior Records(a division of Rock It up Records), which released "Two of a kind" worldwide on October 8th, 2010. The response of critic was, once again, very good and on April 2011 the album ranked 30th in the " Top 50 Import disks charts", pubblished by notorious Japanese magazine "BURNN". In April/May 2012 Stamina enbarked on their first European tour, consisting of 9 shows in 5 different Countries: Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Spain and Italy.
