Epischer Hollywood-Soundtrack trifft auf modernen Metal. Diese ungewöhnliche Stilkombination ist es, die den einzigartigen Sound der Hessener Band CONSPIRIA ausmacht. Getragen durch ein treibendes Fundament, das gemäß der Tradition metal(l)ischer Musik durch den Einsatz von elektrischen Gitarren, Bass und Schlagzeug gebildet wird, werden sich gegenseitig ergänzender weiblicher Klargesang und männliche gutturale Vocals gekonnt in Szene gesetzt. Abgerundet wird das einzigartige Klangbild der Formation schließlich durch den geschmackvollen Einsatz ausgefeilter orchestraler Arrangements und atmosphärischer Soundeffekte.
2017 nahm die Band erfolgreich an den internationalen FemME Battles 2017 teil und erspielte sich einen Slot auf dem FemME-Festival, sowie die Produktion ihrer Debut-EP SIGNS AND ORIGINS.
Seit dem ersten Oktober 2017 ist die CD unter dem Label
Painted Bass Records überall erhältlich.
Never a band to shy away from change, Persona have undergone continued metamorphosis since their 2012 inception. Founded in Tunisia by lead guitarist Melik Melek Khelifa and Serbian singer/pianist Jelena Dobric, the band rounded up a complete line-up, including their current rhythm guitarist Yosri Ouada, and quickly established themselves in the Tunisian metal scene by winning the Tunis “Metal Asylum Battle” in August 2013 when they performed live on stage with guest star Ron Bumblefoot Thal. Their first single, “Blinded,” was voted best metal video in the African Rock Music Awards (AudioInferno.com), and gave them a greater international reach. The video has gone on to receive over 1.3 million views on YouTube.
Their first full-length, Elusive Reflections, was released in 2016. With a sound that didn’t overtly pander to their locale, Persona still brought a fresh and exotic angle to their version of modern metal: one that emphasized strong, catchy melodies alongside heavier and progressive moments. Despite living in a part of the world not known for metal, they managed to garner critical acclaim internationally. Thus Persona quickly returned in 2017 after successfully crowdfunding their second full-length, aptly titled Metamorphosis. A release that saw them flexing even heavier elements in their sound, while still retaining a sense of grace and elegance by experimenting further with classical orchestrations and serene, sometimes progressive, melodies.
The result was a resounding success, which led the band into greater live and touring opportunities. Within Tunisia, the band opened for Xandria and Myrath in 2017 as well as won the Hard Rock Rising competition two years in a row (2016 and 2017). They also got their first invitation to play in Europe, performing at FEMME – Female Metal Event – in Eindhoven, Netherlands in September 2017. The well-received event garnered them invites for more festivals and concerts in Europe. Keeping the momentum moving forward, the band released a music video
for the Halloween single “Skeleton Dance” in 2018. To bring the band to the next level, Persona relocated to Hanover, Germany in 2019.
With the move came the search for new members to accompany Khelifa, Dobric, and Ouada. Joining the band were Eike Nehen on the bass and Simon Schröder filling out the rhythm section. The band has already played some successful shows in Germany, and released a new single titled “Alpha” in November 2020 as an opening for their third full-length, „Animal“ released in Fall 2021. The new album will showcase yet another metamorphosis in the band’s impressive evolution as they prepare to make their definitive mark on the global metal scene, supported by winning the Metal Hodesses Award 2021 for the best alternative-metal album.
Once upon a time there where three men and a beautiful woman who decided to create new genre of metal music. Follow Xiphea into a wonderland of magic, mystic chants and exciting stories. Fairy tales who everybody knows combined with a wall of sound. This new genre is not characterized by a polished turned out pop-metal sound with no rough edges. It sparkles through its beautiful melodies, the magical voice of the female singer and the innovative narrative style of well-known and popular fairy tales. The edginess comes from the really fast, punky guitar riffs, rhythmical finesse, and last but not least a large portion of “heaviness”. Get the music in your head, see the powerful, magical live shows by Xiphea and join the trip into great new experiences. And this is the fairytale…
A homage to the power metal bands of the 90s and 2000s: fast, powerful and playful. This is how you could describe the style of the Munich band Legacy Reborn, if it weren’t for the multi-layered vocals of frontwoman Susan Noto, who adds the necessary portion of emotion to the concentrated energy of the four instrumentalists. The result is a unique style of melodic power metal, intoxicating, honest and cliché-free.
What sounded like a dream for the two guitarists Carlos P. and Karlos C. 10 years ago is reality today: Growing up in Colombia, concerts of their favourite bands like Helloween, Edguy and Co were rare. Out of love for music, there was often only one solution: to pick up the guitar and play the songs of the (mostly European) metal bands. Having arrived on the other side of the Atlantic in the 2010s, founding his own band was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream.
And this makes the music of Legacy Reborn one thing above all: an affair of the heart.
