Split Heaven is one of the most important upcoming promises Heavy Metal has to show to the world. They combine thundering speed, '80s metal riffs (we all miss), battles of solos and high pitched vocals to create a vicious monster ready to bite, infect and spread the word of Heavy Metal. These five amigos from Mexico are ready to make you scream. Pedro Zelbohr and Tomas Roitman formed the band in 2005. After one year, now with two new members: Eli Valenzuela & Carlo "Taii" Hernández, Split Heaven recorded a demo called R.I.P, which gave life to this Mexican heavy metal act. In 2007, the band recorded a second demo, which was released in a limited edition by Asenath Records of Monterrey, México. With this recording, the band started to make noise in the Mexican scene, being the supporting band for Hammerfall (Sweden), Rata Blanca (Argentina) & L.A Guns (U.S.A). Being not 100% satisfied with their sound, Split Heaven decides to add a new member, Armand "Hank" Ramos, and in 2008 Blower Records offers a contract for the first full-length album of the band which is named "Psycho Samurai" and was released in July of the same year in a show with U.S Metal bands: At War & Agent Steel. In 2009, Split Heaven won the Mexican Metal Battle contest of Wacken Festival, which took place in Mexico City at Circo Volador venue. With this, they received the opportunity to represent México in the 2009 Metal Battle at Wacken Open Air, on its 20th Anniversary, being the first Mexican band ever to perform in this festival. In the same year, High Roller Records (Germany) acquires the license of "Psycho Samurai" and releases the LP in a limited edition on February of 2010. In July of 2010, the band got invited to play in Brazil, sharing stage with Brazilian and American bands of the German label Pure Steel Records and after this, the label signed the Mexican maniacs releasing their new album “Street Law” in April of 2011. In the same month, Skol Records releases a tribute album of Metalucifer, which Split Heaven took part of. The band have played in Mexico with some of the most important bands in the worldwide metal scene, such as: Hammerfall, Paul Di' Anno, L.A Guns, Rata Blanca, Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, Brainstorm, among others, and is one of the strongest heavy metal bands in their country. Split Heaven is endorsed by: Washburn Guitars, Randall Amplifiers, Eden Amplification, Vic Firth, MEINL Cymbals and Evans Drumheads.
