Perseus is a power metal band formed in 2011 in Brindisi (Puglia, Southern Italy) from the ashes of two local bands: “Hastings” (prog-metal, openers for Athena and Eldritch) and “Defenders of the Faith” (Judas Priest tribute band). Within an already well-explored genre, Perseus carved out their own personal space, taking inspiration from the old metal school of bands like Judas Priest, Manowar and Queensryche, without disdaining influences from more "Avant-Gardes" bans such as Kamelot or the italian Rhapsody Of Fire and Labyrinth.

The Italian melodic tradition of bel canto and nice melodies are mixed with powerful riffs. The more intimate moments of the songs are highlighted using acoustic guitars and keyboards. Passion, suffer, joy, love, damnation, redemption, etc., are the predominant themes expressed into the lyrics. In 2011, after two self-produced demos, “Ashes to Ashes” and “Icarus Creed”, Perseus signed their first contract with Nadìr Music led by Tommy Talamanca, Trevor, (both members of Sadist) and by the label manager Federico Gasperi.

In October 2013, Perseus recorded its debut album entitled "The Mystic Hands of Fate" (for Nadìr Music), produced by Tommy Talamanca who also recorded keyboards for the band. The first album gave to the band the possibility to open for band such as Vision Divine, Queensryche and Hollow Haze.

On the 1st of April 2016, Perseus published its second album, "A Tale Whispered In The Night” (for Buil2Kill Records), which was presented in Rome, having Fabio Lione as guest star who played live on the stage along with the band for that occasion. In September 2016, Perseus went on tour along with DragonhammeR to support the Swedish metal band Civil War in their European tour. In February 2018 Perseus went on a 4-day live shows as Headliner across Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovenia, experiencing warm appreciation from the audience and establishing a new fan base also in those areas. In 2024 the band signed with the English “Escape Music Ltd. and released its 3rd album “Into the silence”
