CORONATUS

Bio: 

Coronatus is a German gothic metal band, formed in Ludwigsburg, Germany in 1999.
Fronted by two female singers with contrasting voices and styles, the band has released four studio album since 2007.

Originally founded in 1999 by vocalist Georgios Grigoriadis and drummer Mats Kurth, Coronatus released its debut single Von Engeln nur in 2002. In 2004, Grigoriadis left, and was replaced by not one but two singers, Carmen R. Schäfer and Viola Schuch. The permanent line-up was expanded in 2006 with the addition of guitarist Stefan Häfele, bassist Wolle Nillies and keyboardist Fabian Merkt.

2007 saw the departure of Viola Schuch, who was replaced by Ada Flechtner.

Chriz diAnno (bass) has played with the band in 2003, 2005–2006, and then again since 2007. Ada Flechtner left the band to devote full attention to her studies. Mid 2010, Dirk Baur joined the Band on Bass Guitar. On February 10, 2011, the band announced that they split their ways with the singer, Natalia Kempin, due to different opinions about the band's music. Her place in the upcoming tour will take Viola Schuch, the former member of the band. Also, Ada Flechtner rejoined Coronatus for the tour.
