Information:

Vanishing Point was formed in the early 1990′s with the line up of guitarist Tommy Vucur, drummer Jack Lukic and bassist Joe Del Mastro, from an earlier band called Eye. Vocalist Silvio Massaro and keyboard player Pep Sammartino joined the band in the mid 90′s and the band changed it’s name to Vanishing Point. Soon after Andrew Whitehead joined as a second guitarist.
The band concentrated their efforts on songwriting and recording and their first album, and In Thought was recorded in 1996, and released in Europe by German label Angular Records in 1997. The following year it was re-issued in Australia by Melbourne label Metal Warriors. The re-issue featured a bonus track, Inner Peace, which featured new guitarist Chris Porcianko, who replaced Andrew Whitehead.

In an era where trends and gimmicks rule - Vanishing Point stand-alone in creating music with heart and soul. Forward thinking and progressive, Vanishing Point’s inherent uniqueness permeates through every aspect of the creative process – providing a rich and enthralling listening experience.
With four critically acclaimed releases and accolades too numerous to mention and a career spanning more than a decade, Vanishing Point is a musical phenomenon – exuding equal doses of confidence, creativity and vision. This attitude saw Vanishing Point be the first unsigned act to ever play the main stages of the celebrated Wacken Open Air Festival in 2000. They followed this up with a triumphant tour through Europe in 2001 with Gamma Ray and Sonata Arctica. With shows across Europe, Australia and New Zealand as direct support to bands like IRON MAIDEN, Sonata Arctica, DragonForce, Helloween, BLS Zakk Wylde, Nightwish and Joe Satriani, the band has take their music to new levels of expression. No other band in
the country can match the professionalism, showman ship or levels of entertainment generated in a Vanishing Point live show. Seeing them once is not enough, reliving the experience is essential.
Consisting of five like-minded, yet distinct individuals, the members of Vanishing Point are among the elite who push boundaries, erase labels and dismantle the preconceptions of what an International Heavy Metal band should be. A feat more often reserved for veteran acts, Vanishing Point were honoured by Sonata Arctica who has recorded the song “Two Minds One Soul” from Tangled in Dream. This example serves as a reminder of the respect levelled at the band and a testament to their skills as modern day composers.
