Since their debut in early 2006, Coral Springs' newest metal sensation, ALEXANDRIA, has received a horde of local acclaim, revealing a growing demand for their presence in the South Florida area, and giving rise to an explosion of global recognition on their behalf. The fresh and otherwise unfazed female-fronted quintet is a distinct mix of widespread musical influence and radical ideology, altogether widely praised for their select fusion of captivating melodies, heavy, head-on harmonic assaults, and evoking operatic vocals.
What's more, a female holding the reins has the band transgressing all conventional notions of metal, heightening their music with a moving, deeply poignant sound and bringing increased sensuality to the songs, matched by no substitute. The result is a uniquely powerful, unforgettable blend of rich, original, heavy head-banging metal.
ALEXANDRIA originally stemmed from the collaboration of drummer Erick Castrillon and vocalist Allie Zangari, both of whom harbored the bands earliest inspiration for creating new and imaginative music rooted with a deeper appreciation for expressive, lyrical content. After months of intensive searching, the band's final lineup was concluded, featuring Allie Zangari on vocals, Rob Tripp and Renzo Iparraguirre on guitars, Carlos Vila on bass and Erick Castrillon playing drums.
Three months after their debut to the public, ALEXANDRIA has already managed the self-release of a four-song demo, Frailty that has earned them widespread recognition from renowned media figures like Epic Rock Radio Station and Real Band TV. Further acclamation of their work has allowed them to be featured on popular metal sites like MetalSide.tk, and 666Metal.com. Meanwhile, ALEXANDRIA is scheduled to appear in the nation-wide publication, Outburn Magazine over the summer, and is presently working with Real Band TV in light of future shows.
