Minuetum is the power metal band formed in 2007 by Dimitris Melidis (keyboards) and Dimitris Zacharopoulos (vocals) in Athens/Greece.
Melidis presented his songs to Zacharopoulos and he added lyrics and vocal lines upon them. The two of them soon approached two more very talented and experienced musicians. Argentinian bassist Ignacio Lopez (Lord Kraven) and Bob Katsionis (Firewind, Outloud) who work with them as a guest musician and as a producer. In 2008 the band recorded there first demo and Melidis and Zacharopoulos being very satisfied by the outcome of there music instantly started looking for a permenant line up for their band. After testing many guitarists and drummers in March of 2009 they recruited Jason Mercury (Katsionis' bandmate fromOutloud) and Drummer Nick Parotidis.
In summer of 2009, once again under the supervision of Bob Katsionis and with his help as a guest musician and producer recorded the final Version of there first album. The album was mixed and mastered by Timo Tolkki (ex-Stratovarius, Revolution Renaissance). The album will be released in July 2010 by a German record label.
