Millennium was formed in 1982 by Mark Duffy (vocals) and Pete McArdle (guitar). They recruited Steve Mennell (drums) Dave Price (bass) and Dave Merrington (guitar). The band released their debut album in 1984 on the Guardian Record label to much critical acclaim.
In 2014 No Remorse Records re released Millennium’s debut album followed by a second album released in 2016 titled “Caught in a Warzone” this album was made up from recordings the band made throughout 1985. In 2015 Mark responded to an advert that Will Philpot had posted looking for like-minded individuals to form a Metal band. The idea of resurrecting Mark’s NWOBHM band Millennium seemed an obvious course as Mark had always felt that this chapter of Metal history was not yet over. In February 2017 the band, including new drummer Darren Moore (previously in Millennium from 1987 – 1988) travelled to Coach House Studios in France to record their new album, mixing the album at Ritual Studios in Darlington UK, the band are ready to unleash ‘Awakening’, a combination of NWOBHM riffage, Heavy Metal ideals and a lyrical call to arms.
