The band consists of Jeffrey Rademakers on vocals, Pieter Vink and Nick van Beusekom on guitar, Mike van Bekkum on bass and Frank Bos on drums. Following the release of their first EP 'For Glory' in 2009, they embarked on a tour across Holland. The success of the album speaks for itself as Spartan performed throughout Europe between 2009-2013. Most notably they have shared the stage with the likes of Marduk, Septic Flesh, Moonspell, Negura Bunget and Greek legends Rotting Christ, before releasing their latest album 'The Fall of Olympus'.
The album is a demonstration of Spartans versatility and unique style as it balances Melo-Death with heavier sounding elements of Melodic Power Metal. The album includes skyrocketing choruses in tracks like 'Breaking the Chains of Olympus' introduced with striking lead intervals and powerful upbeat melodies found in tracks such as 'Elysium'. It is not surprising that they have been compared to bands such as: Amon Amarth and In Flames.
