After a stop of 16 years, TRANCE was reborn in 2011: with original co-founders Markus Berger on guitar and Thomas Klein on bass. Like most bands, TRANCE once started as a local band. After years of releasing demos and singles themselves, they received a Rockport Records record deal and recorded their first album ‘Break Out’. From that moment it went like a train for the band. They scored festival after festival and became number three largest heavy metal band in Germany.
