Dexter Ward

Profile:
After three successful studio albums with BATTLEROAR, and several live shows all over Europe, including the participation in
festivals such as Keep It True, Headbangers Open Air, Swordbrothers and March Metal Day, where the band shared the stage
with acts such as MANOWAR and RHAPSODY, in the year 2009 Mark Dexter and Manolis Karazeris decided to form new band. Its
name, DEXTER WARD, was taken from the short H.P. Lovecraft novel titled "The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward".
Long time friends and fellow Heavy Metal brothers Akis Pastras (guitars) and John Luna Tsimas (bass) promptly joined their
quest, and with Aggelos Tsoukalas (from BLOODSTAINED) on board, the band recorded and released the limited promo CD in
2010. Later that Iron On Iron Records released the "Antarctic Dream" 12" vinyl EP, which featured three tracks from the
mentioned promo release, as well as live version of the CIRITH UNGOL classic "Go It Alone". One year later the band released its
debut album titled "Neon Lights", which has been promoted on live shows in both Greece (opening for CRIMSON GLORY and
VIRGIN STEELE) and in other European countries.
In 2013 the band inked the deal with No Remorse Records, and released the "Stars And Stripes" 7" single, where the title track
has been coupled with a cover version of the LORD song titled "Leather Queen". One week after the release of the single, the
band played two shows as the support act of another US Metal legend: WARLORD. Few months later new DEXTER WARD
recordings saw the light of the day, as the band joined the WARLORD and ANVIL tribute albums.
In 2014 and 2015 the band was busy with both live shows (incl. opening for JAG PANZER in Athens), and in the studio: in April of
2015 the band released the limited edition 12" split album with their label mates BLACK SOUL HORDE, where the DEXTER WARD
side was opened with the title track from their forthcoming album "Rendezvous With Destiny", and where the band also
included 3 alternate versions of the songs already known from the "Neon Lights" album. After playing at the Up The Hammers
Festival, and sharing the stage with cult acts such as MANILLA ROAD, OMEN or TITAN FORCE, the band joined the RIOT tribute
album, and then focused on the new studio album. "Rendezvous With Destiny", as this is the title of their new, full length
released at Keep It True Festival in Germany, on April 29, 2016.
