Suicidal Angels was formed by Nick in early 2001. The very first line-up consisted of Nick (guitar/vocals) and Kostas (bass) and the musical steps the band followed were in old school thrash metal (something that hasn’t and won’t change!). That can be heard in the first demo, "United by Hate" (July 2001). After rehearsals and some early line-up changes, the band welcomes Orfeas (drums). With this line-up (Nick – guitar / vocals, Kostas – bass, Orfeas – drums), Suicidal Angels record their second demo, "Angels' Sacrifice" (December 2003).
