Ordained Fate

Power Metal / Thrash Metal
Kenosha, Wisconsin / Zion, Illinois, USA

Ordained Fate was an early 90’s female fronted Christian power metal band with thrash elements throughout. Pam Scott, Marge Curtner, Annette Cvengros and Terry Cvengros created their own original sound, part W.A.S.P., Mortification, and Bloodgood.

Originally known as Cryptic Axe in the early to mid 80’s, Pam Scott and Annette Stupar met in High-School when they were 16. They formed Cryptic Axe while in school (Waukegan/Zion IL) area near Gurnee, IL (where Cornerstone Festival was founded) and began their music journey together. This is also the same area where Whitecross was formed. After meeting Marge right out of high school, they put the official band together (although every member played in numerous bands in and around Chicago's club scene prior).

The band went through various names and drummers at different times - including Malachi (with Mike Mattner on Drums), Chrome Molly, and an unknown band name with Cindi Inden on Drums. Eventually they found Terry Cvengros on drums recorded the Cryptic Axe demo.

After these numerous changes with the band, as well as being back and fourth with their Christian walk, it was in 1990 that Ordained Fate was born. At some point, Annette Stupar and Terry Cvengros were married. The band released 3 independent tapes at the time which gained them attention in the Christian Metal market and would end up opening for bands such as Believer, Sacred Warrior (another Chicago band), and The Crucified… gaining them a spot on the above mentioned Cornerstone Festival's new band showcase in 1991. Wonderland Records took notice of them and signed them to a multi-album deal. However after little exposure and lack of label support to help secure a tour for them Wonderland Records would release them of their agreement on March 31, 1995.
