Armageddon was a rock band formed in 1975, comprising drummer Bobby Caldwell, previously a member of Captain Beyond, singer Keith Relf, who had fronted the enormously influential Yardbirds as well as having been a co-founder of Renaissance, guitarist Martin Pugh, of Steamhammer fame, and bassist Louis Cennamo, also formerly of Renaissance and Steamhammer. They only released one album, the self titled Armageddon. The band only played a few gigs to promote the album which suffered the fate of being largely ignored as a result, only recently gaining something of a reputation amongst fans of hard rock.
Armageddon was a Swedish heavy metal band, led by Christopher Amott of Arch Enemy. Originally conceived as a melodic death metal band, the group's later efforts fall into the power metal category. The band has released three albums in Japan to date.
