Profile Short-lived band from Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg acted between 1994 till 1997, released  a 5 track demo tape in 1995 before the release of their debut album that came out in 1996 Independently while the same year they were the winner of the SWF 3- “Rookies” contest. Althought the band originally located from Germany the members coming form different areas, as singer Todd McDowell is Native American, drummer Jean-Paul Kieffer comes from Belgium, guitarist Sang Vong was born in Vietnam, while guitarist and band founder Michael Klein among bassist Stefan Scholz are German. A multi-cultural production that will meet international standards having a sound a bit like Crimson Glory with those prog passages here and there with a voice ala Tony Mills and Chris Ousey at times while the songs varies between ballads and catchy tunes with hit potential dashing straight numbers. Later Michael Klein and Sang Vong will team-up again with Wicked Sensation.
