History

Attika is the centre of Greece and the region wherein Athens lies. Attika is also the moniker for a power metal band from Melbourne, Florida which was formed in 1986.
The band was formed in 1986 by vocalist/bassist Robert VanWar, guitarist Joe Longobardi, and drummer Jeff Patelski. The Motherlods demo was recorded in the same year. The band appears on a local compilation and recruits bassist Dan Rubel. A self-titled debut is released in 1988 on the band's own Prison records which goes on to be issued in Europe two years later.
1989 brought the replacement of Dan Rubel by Scott Miller. Oddly enough several other bassists came and went. In 1990 Attika won the Florida Jammy Award for Best Metal Band. A year later the band independently released the When Heroes Fall album. This album is licensed and released by Massacre Records in Germany and Metal Mania in Japan. A video for the song The Shame was also shot for this album.
Attika contemplated the re-release of When Heroes Fall and The Shame video a decade later. The band's debut was re-released in late 2002 by Cult Metal Classics on both CD and LP.
