Sharon was formed in October 92, when the keenest musicians
of two popular young bands from Germany joined forces to form a
In 1993 Sharon stood on stage for the first time to present their
new material to the public. The reaction was so encouraging that
the band decided to take part in a "Newcomer" contest.
Sharon did well in this contest placing 3rd out of 60 bands.
The band went into the studio for the first time to record a demo
at the request of a record company. Sharon then went on tour with
many well known bands to improve their live performance.
In 1996 the band had a lineup change as Dirk Kurth (bass) joined.
Along with singer Toni Pinto, guitarist Achim Jager, keyboarder
and guitarist Harold Merkx and drummer Jurgen Grozinger, Sharon
polished their style.
1998 saw the band together with Charlie Bauerfield, a well known
producer in the field of melodic metal, producing twelve
diversified songs. The songs were now waiting for release under
the title "Edge of Time". The band signed a contract
with Limb Music Publishing.
The outlook for a successful career for the band is therefore
excellent and the band is already standing on the start line. In
other words, the time is right for Sharon to try to take that big
step with their debut album "Edge of Time."
