PreEmptive Strike 0.1 was created in 2002 in Agios Nicolaos on the island of Crete in Greece by Jim 'The Blaster' and Cryon. Having worked together before on electronic projects they decided to form a band making the kind of music they enjoyed, combining the harsh Dark Electro/EBM sound with powerful melodies, eastern elements and sci-fi thematology.
2005 is a landmark year for the band. The inclusion in the 'Endzeit Bunkertrack:Act I' compilation by Alfa Matrix with the track 'Lethal Defense Systems', fortified the band's will. It also marks the beginning of the band's cooperation with producer Dimitris Ntouvras @ Lunatech Sounds Studios.
2006 saw the debut release by PreEmptive Strike 0.1 entitled 'Lethal Defense Systems'- produced by Dimitris N. and mastered by Vasi Vallis (ex-NamNamBulu, Reaper, Frozen Plasma). Meanwhile, they appeared on various compilations while continuing to work on new material and remixes.
Unfortunately, PES 0.1 were forced to remain inactive for most of 2006, due to military obligations. 2007 sees them back and fully operational! The success of 'Lethal Defence Systems' earns them appearances at the Wave Gotik Treffen, Dark City and Elfentanz festivals among others.
Now, the wait is almost over. PES 0.1 prepare to unleash the second wave of attack with their new album 'Extinction Reprogrammed'. The complete tracklist, including special collaborations and remixes will be slowly revealed as we count down to the release date!
The invasion has begun!
