Reflection was founded in Lünen (NRW/Germany) by Timo Lehmann (guitar) in 1992.
In the following year the first bigger concerts were held at several events, for example as support act for Accuser, Germany's thrash heroes of that time.
Alas, the Band in that formation could not cross local borders, so Markus Radola took over the mike. His expressive voice added a more sophisticated touch to the songs.
Inspired by the new front man and growing instrumental abilities, their style went more and more to speed/thrash metal, a development not everyone in the band could identify with. Thus Reflection fell apart in 1996.
Markus and Timo tried to rebuild Reflection back from the basis, but could not find suitable musicians meeting all the requirements until 1999. With Heino Drescher (guitar) and Siggi Kwapich (bass) two high-quality musicians finally joined Reflection.
In February 2004 Reflection signed a contract with STF-Records, who released the Album 'Made in Hell' on 06.14.2004.
The experience of many years and hard work let the Band grew ever more to a working unit, which affected the songwriting lastingly. The newer songs are characterized by more complexity and inventiveness, however never losing sight of the speed/thrash metal roots.
In October 2009 the contract with Fastball has been signed. The new album 'Advertising Violence' has been released on 02.21.2011.
On August the 1st Reflection split up.
