“At ease with the growing audience, all talented musicians with an eye for melody, these guys have a bright future” (East Hampshire online)
The last year has seen the band performing along side acts including The Sword, Taking Dawn, Inmoria and Kobra and the Lotus aswell as playing their own Headline shows. Their intense, high energy live show demonstrates the bands dedication to give their fans a true live experience that makes them come back for more every time. With their reputation as a live band and ever growing fan base 2011 was a fantastic year for Dendera.
“Dendera has all the energy of a young Def Leppard and the prowess of early Iron Maiden. They are the modern embodiment of the spirit of the NWOBHM, and fucking pleasure rock with live. Talented beyond their years” ( Chris Babbitt – Taking Dawn)
2012 is turning into an exciting year for Dendera and it hasn’t even started yet!

We believe in the true sound of NWOBHM! The true from of heavy metal. But we take influence from bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath! NWOBHM all the way! \m/
