Xandria

Female-fronted symphonic/goth metal band Xandria broke into the German music mainstream in 2004 with their second album, Ravenheart. Though many argue that the band isn't genuinely metal, Xandria garnered a sizable following in Germany and a growing following internationally; in particular, the band's flair for exotic themes and Middle Eastern motifs contributed to its appeal, as did its English-language lyrics. Founded in Bielefeld, Germany, in 1997, Xandria are comprised of Lisa Middelhauve (vocals, piano), Marco Heubaum (guitar), Philip Restemeier (guitar), Nils Middelhauve (bass), and Gerit Lamm (drums). The band's recording history began with a self-titled demo in 1997, followed by a second demo, Kill the Sun, in 2000. Subsequently signed to Drakkar Records, a German metal label affiliated with Sony BMG, Xandria made their album debut with Kill the Sun in 2003. Produced by Dirk Riegner and recorded during winter 2002-2003, the album cracked the German Top 100 album chart, reaching number 98. Xandria's second album, Ravenheart (2004), proved their mainstream breakthrough. Produced by José Alvarez-Brill and recorded during winter 2003-2004, the album spawned a Top 100 hit single, "Eversleeping," and sold well enough to reach number 36 on the German album chart. Xandria's third album, India (2005), was also produced by José Alvarez-Brill and charted slightly better than its predecessor, peaking at number 30. Salomé -- The Seventh Veil (2006), Xandria's fourth album, marked a change in direction for the band. Produced by bandmember Marco Heubaum, the album was thematically based loosely upon Salomé, the seductive daughter of Herodias who is mentioned in the New Testament of the Bible in connection with the death of John the Baptist. Salomé was less successful than its two predecessors -- just barely breaking into the Top 50, at number 49, and spawning no charting hits, though a video was filmed for the single "Save My Life" -- and somewhat polarizing because of the band's change in direction. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

Every discussion about Xandria contains posts about Nightwish. First of all, I don't see a lot of similarities , And, second, Nightwish sounds like Therion but I don't see too many complaints about that. Anyway, great band, I am glad I discovered it, and I can't wait for Lisa's solo album to come out.

The couple songs from this band I have heard I didn't care for...but this song is so beautiful. I absolutely love it!
Pandora need more of the songs from Neverworld's End like "Soulcrusher " "Call of the Wind" and "Euphoria" --those are the most epic Xandria songs ive ever heard!!! I thing Neverworld's End is Xandria's AWSOMEST album EVER!!!!!
That's right Pandora, we pay u play.
get the salome album and the ravenheart album they have some great songs there.
Pandora admins: Please work out whatever license issue is causing the problem and get the Ravenheart album available! Salomé – The Seventh Veil would also be nice, but especially Ravenheart.
great music
I really enjoy their new album! But it sounds very similar to Night Wish...But Xandria has a very wide variety of music in their albums and a very extravagant tone and intromental harmony
This group here, Xandria, has a very solid style. It takes a lot to impress me, but the first song I heard by them blew me away. As for the keyboards, I'm not usually big on them either. But Xandria pulls them in flawlessly and makes a beautiful sound.
Great band, but dont like Keyboards in any band!
robb419
to answer the previous post....caus e the garbage most people know is the junk they hear on censored radio.....im o
Why have I never heard of this band before now? Truly impressive music
hopmic90873
Sounds a lot like Nightwish before Tarjaa left. Has a lot of the old flavor, which is a very good thing.
ernestoe8
Amazing voice, kick a** music. I love this band.
Yes. The more Xandria, the better!
Pandora Admins, the India and Kill The Sun albums are fine, but please add the Ravenheart and Salomé albums too.
WOw i kinda speechless right now...I can't put to descriptive it right now...
I love Black and Silver. So much emotion to the song!
I love the song India- Its so Epic.
@Keith:one thing that makes a band great is variety, and Xandria has that.
Xandria is an awesome band. I love the fact that they have so many different sounds. They can rock your socks off, then they throw in a song with Eastern influences, then they sound like an Irish pub band. Great job. We need more bands like this!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Why you post s**t about Godsmak no one cares there a s**t band
Okay, that was funny. I just checked this page out through the Eyes of Eden page, and now I'm listening to "India." lol
@operaboy6:I agree with you. He makes me laugh because he thinks that he can actually change people's minds about music! lol
i know he's really annoying and all that but i can't help but laugh whenever he pops up. :D

he seems to think that he'll actually accomplish something some day
In short: he's a troll. He gets his jollies by stirring crap. We've all been trying to ignore him, hoping that he'll go away, but it hasn't worked, yet. I'm still going to ignore him, anyway. It's not worth getting upset over.
Godsmack is the band he likes. It's in all his posts. Even backwards. He also likes Disturbed. He just does this to see people blow up on him.
i've been wondering... w h a t kind of music does willow like anyway? all he ever does is dis awsome metal bands... i guess he likes some some sissy band i've never heard of. :P
Isis Osiris is my favorite song by them. I don't know what it is, but I love female singers more than male.
i love all of their music. i dont entirely know what it is about them, but it puts me in the mood to become a better artist.
I really like India.
@freeurmynd: never thought of it like that, but you're right. Xandria's music really is similar to old school metal. Thanks for pointing that out!
This band is what got me started in the symphonic metal genre. She has the 2nd best voice in the genre, right behind Liv, IMO. And for those who say they are not metal.... seriously look up old school metal. The guitars are what drives them into metal.
that must be another reason why these guys are so bland to me: Xandria has symphonic elements, but it's tied with a softer goth rock sound. nothing wrong with that, but they are still too flimsy for me.
I've heard two songs off of India that were metal, and nothing off of Kill the Sun that was.
I would say that, from what I've heard, India is metal, and Kill The Sun is questionable .
Yeah, but then you get songs like, "Mermaids", and "Kill the Sun", which are less metal even than Edenbridge.

Xandria kind of seem like they incorporate all the symphonic from symphonic metal and little of the metal.
This, I guess, technically makes them not a metal band, but the fact that their symphonic arrangements are in the style of metal makes for some very "epic" songs in the true meaning of the term. Like a rose on the Grave of Love, for instance is not a far stretch from Bach with modern instruments and a singer. Are they Metal? Maybe not, but they're certainly an offshot, and not a very far o
@LLM: They have a couple of songs that are metal, but for the most part they play stuff that's stylisticall y closer to goth rock. You can really argue it either way with no clear winner, I just happened to pick that side for the sake of controversy.
@Plague: What's the arguement for Xandria not being a metal band?
@Emily: I'd argue that they really do sound pretty much like any other gothic-symph o group in the goth rock genre, in addition to arguing that they're not actually a metal band.
While your 'quoting' makes you look like a complete jackass (just like everything else you do), it's certainly a lot funnier than the garbage posts where you type backwards about Godsmack, extend the word Godsmack to an entire post length, or impersonate other people who are not suffering from sheer determined retardation.

If you can't stop being a horrible troll, you should really stick to misquoting people - the personal touch makes all the difference!

But seriously, go the hell away Willow.
I like this because they sound different to a lot of other symphonic metal bands out there, and that's actually pretty cool.

And Willow is doing that all over the place.
And I actually detest Godsmack.
Thank you, Plague of Unicorns. Succinctly put.
I like Xandria because Willow is not a member, and they are not Godsmack.
I like Xandria because they're not as heavy as the other similar artists.
