Samothrace initially came together out of friendship made through involvement in DIY Punk/Hardcore/Metal community. Although currently based in Seattle, Washington, their hometowns span from New Mexico, Kansas and Oklahoma. Their lyrics, albeit poetic, are rooted in the ideals of social change, political incoherence, and a bleak but positive outlook on life... intended for those who've taken back their breath and risen on their own and those who wish to do so. Samothrace is an evolving beast. Keep it heavy... keep it underground. Heavy music for heavy times.

Isaac (ex Leng Tch'e & Bob's Bizare Bazaar) and Stijn had been trying to form a new grindcore band for a long time, but in September '06 they teamed up with two racers from Kruagre/Crust Deluxe, Dieter and Jonas. The foursome was quite creative and January '07 the band felt that the time had come to think about gigs, recordings and most of all, a name. After a long search Isaac came up with 'A Den Of Robbers'.
