Dol Ammad combines three initially very different music worlds and ultimately proves that good music should be free of rules, unprejudiced and universal. Mixing elements from the electronic, the operatic and the heavy metal music worlds, Dol Ammad have created a new universe of sounds and feelings. Their music is characterized by the plethora of sounds, the adventurous compositions and the now 14 member choir (7 men – 7 women) who are the "singer” in Dol Ammad.

Dol Ammad is formed in 2000 by composer Thanasis Lightbridge. The band describes itself as "Electronica – Art – Metal” and releases 2 demo CDs in 2001 and 2002.

In 2003 Dol Ammad recruites the talents of one of the best power/progressive drummers in the world, Alex Holzwarth (Rhapsody, Sieges Even) to release their debut album "Star Tales" in November 2004. It features 12 tracks of operatic and progressive fantasy metal.

In August 2006 their second album "Ocean Dynamics" comes out. It's another unexplored fantasy trip inspired by the powers of the sea. Apart from the more technical and challenging drumming that Alex Holzwarth produces this time, "Ocean Dynamics" also features one of the greatest singers in the melodic metal world, DC Cooper, as a guest singer together with the choir in the song "Aquatic Majesty”.

Seeking total artistic freedom and control, Dol Ammad form their own personal record label "Electronicartmetal Records” which carries the task of releasing Dol Ammad’s works as well as many other projects that Thanasis Lightbridge has planned for the near future, for example Dol Theeta, the atmospheric, meditative, emotionally cosmic and psychedelically melodic side of Electronica Art Metal.

The music of Dol Ammad follows no structure. It is highly descriptive and unpredictable hence the "art" character to it. The spectrum of influences is so wide that one can even find moments of trance, new age, black metal, ethnic and jazz.
