Formed initially with the name Steelchains in the summer of 2008 by Michele “Met” Alluigi
(guitars and vocals) and Stefano Sai (bass), who had previously played together in their first band
Shadow Force, the line up was completed with Carlo “Pera” Perasso (lead guitars) and Marcello
Alipede (drums). The early sound was oriented on classic Heavy Metal, and Steelchains soon began to play live in many shows supporting more famous bands in Savona’s metal scene such as Gangstars, Broken Plan and Machine Gun Kelly. In September 2009 Pera left the band for personal reasons and he was replaced by Riccardo Molinari (ex Threnodial, Molten Lizzies); with his entrance, the band decided to change its name and sound and “PERCEVERANCE” (written with c instead of s to avoid
omonimy) was chosen by Met as a symbol of steadiness with wich the band wanted to renew and come back. In May 2010 Stefano also left the band for personal reasons and in June of the same year Marcello left the project to join the Italian Army. After a period of inactivity, the band was reformed by Met with Riccardo on lead guitars, Andrea Core (ex Bloodline, Dirty 6, Little Bastard Friend) on the bass guitar and Fabrizio “Edgecrusher” Petrolla on drums (member with Met of the symphonic black metal band Mystical Crisis). New songs were composed and the band was very active on the live scene but in March 2011 Fabrizio left the musical project. The band anyway continued to work on its material and on the recording session of the first demo. Behind the drums Andrea Frasson (ex Shadow Force, ex Very Lazy) was chosen to replace Fabrizio. In August 2011, after some difficulties, the band released its first self produced demo of 4 songs “Persistence in Time”, recorded with the help of the great friend Gianluca Tamburini (ex Last Rites and Broken Plan, current member of Machine Gun Kelly), which soon received approval following reviews in different webzines. After new line up change Sebastiano “Seib” Rusca (ex Powerdrive) and Christian “Kri” Fiorentino (Dreamer’s Road) joined the band as lead guitarist and bass player. With this new line up Perceverance re-started again their live performances at some festivals such as the We Will Play You Festival, Liguria in Metal Fest, Vado Rock Fest, Machete Fest, Green Festival, Archetype Fest and many biker shows. The band also recorded it’s official debut album “The Dark Mechanism” in 2013 at Eleven Studio, promoted and ditribuited by January Born Killers; in 2016 was also published for the ligurian label Archetype Records the single “Social Deathwork”and actually Perceverance are working on their second album. Keep on thrashing!
