Athrox is the brainchild of the guitar player Sandro Seravalle and the drummer Alessandro Brandi, with the addition of Francesco Capitoni at the guitar and the bassplayer Andrea Capitani.
The lineup found its final shape with the singer Giancarlo Picchianti. With these me mbers Athrox started the songwriting process for their first full lenght album entitled “Are you alive?” – featuring 11 brand new heavy metal tracks – released by Red Cat Records in 2016.
Athrox’s music style is a powerful mixture of heavy metal with thrash elements, but characterized by different elements which brought the band to a great response from critics and audience.
The lyrical concept behind “Are you alive?” features the rising problems of mankind: war and massive new media problems which enslaved our free will and sensibility. “Are you alive?” is the question Athrox would like to ask to everyone, to every being enslaved by this corrupted society.
The live activity has led the Athrox to share the stage with great artists such as Iced Earth, Ross The Boss, Mike Le Pond, Phil Campbell and many others, playing in local and renowned festivals.
Now the band is working on the new stuff for the new album which is going to be released in 2018.
