Do these guys know how to have fun or what?


Pegazus hails from Australia and their music is in the vein of Manowar and Judas Priest.

Pegazus was formed in 1993 by brothers Johnny & Robbie Stoj. Not long after original singer Justin Fleming joined. In early 94 Bass player Dave King joined.

After playing for several months Pegazus entered the studio to work on their debut album. In 1995 they released their self titled album Pegazus. Pegazus sold well in Australia and overseas in Europe and Japan.

In late 95 Justin left the band and in early 96 new singer Danny Cecati joined. Pegazus released a demo tape called Metalbound to showcase Danny. In 1997 the band released their second album Wings of Destiny. In 1998 the great metal label Nuclear Blast signed Pegazus and rereleased Wings of Destiny. Pegazus played two dates at the prestiges Wacken Open Air Festival and one date at the Rock Hard Festival. They also later toured with Hammerfall, Primal Fear, and Labyrinth on the Templar Crusade Tour.

Bass player Dave King left the band and was replaced by Cory Betts. In 1999 the band began working on their 3rd album Breaking The Chains which was released in November 1999. In early 2000 singer Danny Cecati left the band, which is currently looking for a new singer. (See the official Pegazus website for details). Also US fans of Pegazus (of which I am proud to be one of) are circulating a petition to encourage Nuclear Blast to bring Pegazus to the States. (See Pegazus website for details).

Please do this (even if your not from the US) we need some decent bands to come to the US, save us from Korn and Limp Bizkit, bring us real metal, bring us PEGAZUS!!! PLEASE!!!
Now to sum up my views on Pegazus. PEGAZUS KICKS ASS, if you like classic metal (early 80's) if you like bands like Manowar, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, etc. You will love Pegazus. PEGAZUS RULEZ!!!!
Last word: I recently talked with Johnny Stoj via e-mail and he seems like a really cool person.

Autographed pictures of Johnny & Robbie Stoj from my personal copy of the first Pegazus CD
