The band was formed in March/April of 2010 after Gilian disbanded his previous band called Rager. He soon hooked up with a local drummer Tine who was also into NWOBHM and speed metal music. First songs took shape - those we're mainly Gil's ideas from the past but some new stuff was being made too, giving a hint to what kind of direction the band would take. After a few unsuccessful auditions Anzo joined on bass and quickly tightened up the sound of the band.
The band named themselves VIGILANCE and recorded a three track demo with Gil on vocals, two ex-Rager songs and a brand new one called "The White Horde". Since then, Jakob joined on vocals, gigs took place and the band is now in full gear. A few months later, in April 2011 the band started recording material. EP Steeds of Time got released on the 15th of October by Haliaetum Records. About two months later the band released a demo/single called Behind The Cellar Door.

Oke, for the dudes and dudettes who really don't feel like reading all that stuff up there, just know that.
If you're into bands like the early Iron Maiden, Satan, Cloven Hoof, Angel Witch, Exciter, Tank, Sortilege and such, be sure to check our stuff. You might be pleasantly surprised.
Okay, boys and girls. Now you can listen to the whole "Steeds of Time" EP on our BandCamp page and you can also download the whole thing for 5€. Every single cent will be invested in our upcoming release.
Okay, I guess it's time for an update. The material for our debut album is mostly finished, mostly. And the recording sessions start in august. With some luck, you'll be able to hear a song or two in September.
Our last confirmed date is on the Third of August at the Metal Camp warmup show. So if anyone here is attending here is the rest of the lineup.
After a long time spent on stages, we are returning to the studio to record the successor of our "Steeds of Time" EP. This time we are going for the full length, which will be released via Metal Tank Records in early 2013.
We have been working harder than ever, so you can expect nothing but dark, fast and untamed Heavy Metal!
"A new Era is dawning, the time of enlightenment has come."
The Slovenian occult act Vigilance is proud to reveal the artwork of their upcoming album entitled “Queen of the Midnight Fire”.
“Queen of the Midnight Fire” is scheduled to be released in 2013 (exact date T.B.A.). Ripping with its excellent mixture of genuine traditional Speed / Heavy Metal filled with profound devotion for primordial occultism, Vigilance itself reflects perfectly a lethal dose of true metal, real old school attitude fueled with dark emotions and spell bound intensity.
Prepare for a voyage beyond mortal knowledge.
The artwork was entirely made by by Mario E. Lopez M
The following song titles are expected to appear on “Queen of the Midnight Fire”:
1. Queen of the Midnight Fire
2. Behind the Cellar Door
4. What Lies Beyond…
5. Night Terrors
6. Four Crowns of Hell
7. Poetry and the Gods
