The music of VANISH is in search of everything that sounds cool,
without stereotypes – as long as it rocks.
A band of great musicians with many years of stage experience
and professional attitude have the absolute goal to get started.


The songs of VANISH have character and
outstanding voice.
The melodic power of VANISH hits exactly the nerve of metal and rock fans.
Independent, diversified and gripping
Music with great singing.
Classical Metal-Trademarks combined with
innovative elements create a strong new
Compact songs, pressing riffs, bombastic
Parts and strong hooklines – variable and never

Modern Metal with character and an outstanding voice

VANISH does not fit into any metal-category. Sophisticated Power Metal with some Prog, Thrash and emotion, but still hard with groove. You think that cannot work? Yes, it can!

The new album “the insanity abstract” is exactly the combination of everything that makes cool metal: hard riffs, fat drums and catchy choruses.

VANISH is a band that can look back on many years of experience on stage, in the studio and in songwriting and puts a lot of passion, effort and creativity into their music.

VANISH manages to create a new sound with powerful songs, a powerful production and interesting songwriting. The whole thing is crowned by an unmistakable singer.

The band can compete with the big ones of the scene. In the past years VANISH have rocked numerous club gigs, festivals and tours and could score as support of famous names like Queensryche, Michael Schenker, Rage, Refuge, Ross the Boss, Brainstorm, Battle Beast, Mystic Prophecy, Axxis, Kissin’ Dynamite, and many more.

After some festival appearances in 2018 and 2019 at Rock of Ages (DE), Rock The Ring (CH), Baltic Open Air (DE), among others, VANISH was on tour in winter 2020 together with RAGE and SERENITY in Europe.
