There's more than one artist named Wheel. 1) Wheel are based in Helsinki, Finland and have been working together since 2015 when former guitarist, Saku introduced James Lascelles (singer/guitarist) to Mikko Määttä (bassist) and Santeri Saksala (drummer). James had some home demos that he had been working on which became the foundation for The Path EP (2017) after months of tweaking and re-arranging by the band. The EP was originally planned to be a demo and was recorded in only two days but the tracking process went so well that they decided to get the songs professionally mixed by one of Finland's most talented producers, Jesse Vainio. Saku Mattila left the band to pursue other projects at the beginning of 2018 and was replaced by Roni Seppänen. Wheel are known for their meticulous attention to detail, a fondness for unusual meters and poly-rhythms and their explosive live shows. They have already toured Germany and the UK and are planning more shows in 2018 to support their recently released, The Divide EP that came out on 1.6.2018. 2) WHEEL was formed in 2006 under the name ETHEREAL SLEEP by Marcus and Arkadius, former members of the Power Metal Band AVANITAS from Dortmund, and Benjamin, former member Dortmund's Thrashers McDEATH. The common goal of the trio was to create old school, heavy, emotional music different from their former bands and so traditional Doom Metal was the only logical consequence. In 2008, after several rehearsals with more or less talented drummers, Cazy joined and guitarist Timo finally completed the line-up for the first time ever. ETHEREAL SLEEP then changed their name to WHEEL because they felt more comfortable with a shorter, more concise name. In early 2009 WHEEL recorded a two track demo in their rehearsal room which led to a multi album deal with Eyes Like Snow. During that time Timo left the band and subsequently Ben took over both lead & rhythm guitars for the album recording. Now that the album is about the be released WHEEL are looking to play some live gigs and perhaps find a new second guitarist to complete their live and possibly studio line-up.. The vinyl version of this album will be released later in 2010 on 12"+7" format including an exclusive bonus track..
