Highlight Kenosis biography
HIGHLIGHT KENOSIS is a progressive metal band founded in March of 2008 in Bucharest, Romania by vocalist Oana Maria STOICA and guitarist Matei-Damian ULMU. They changed their name from HIGHLIGHT to HIGHLIGHT KENOSIS in September 2008. The band found bassist Adi SARDI and drummer Dan ALEXANDRU to complete their lineup, and the band then proceeded to write in preparation for a number of live shows they played around Europe. At its earlier form, the band included Dragos SERBANESCU (Bass), John CIUREA (Drums) and Alexandru BEREHOI (keyboards).

It wasn't long before the band's female-led brand of progressive metal caught the attention of Ravenheart Music in England, and with a record label backing them, the band headed up to Uppsala, Sweden to record their debut album. Their debut album, ''Glowing'', was promptly released in 2009. The band then returned to touring and writing, and in May 2012 they are expected to release their sophomore effort, ''Change''.

The band's heavy progressive style is akin to the female-led English act TO-MERA as well as the virtuosic and melodic aspects of much of the progressive metal community harnessed best by the likes of DREAM THEATER and SYMPHONY X.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Highlight Kenosis is a romanian prog metal band with some gothic influences here and there, specially on vocal depart,ment but also on instrumental passages. I've bought their CD 2 yars ago and since then the album is in my CD player and in my car , great vocal parts sung by female Oana Maria Stoica, who has a very warm and in same time very powerful voice. This band is a young one in this bussines, but they manage to come with a great album in this field. As I said earlier the arrangements has a touch of ghotic moments, well peerformed and very well melted with more rougher ones close to prog metal. A real pleasure to listen to this album, was a great surprise for me. Good musicianship and very good sound, mixed somewhere in Sweden in a famous studio. So, every piece is a total winner, specially my personal fav are Final warning and A drop of you, brilliant voice with some fantastic keybords elements. This band is a shining star in romanian prog metal zone, they sound very good and above all I like thier attitude, positive and with fresh blood. I hope if will be a next album, to sound at least as good as this one. Good job band and keep up the good work, 3 stars
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
