Alazka from Recklinghausen started their journey in 2012 as Burning dow Alaska. After a few line-up changes they published their debut-EP Values & Virtues in March 2015 via Redfield Records. At the end of March 2017 they announced to change their name into Alazka because they wanted to have a name that perfectly describes their musical style and personality. Also, the former name of the band was chosen when most of the current line-up actually was not in the band yet. After the change of their band name they signed a record deal with Arising Empire and SharpTone Records. Arrived at their new label home, they released their debut Album Phoenix in September 2017.
