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 bass player Andrea Capitani. The lineup found its final shape with the singer Giancarlo Picchianti. With these members Athrox started the songwriting process for their first full length album entitled Are You Alive, and released the debut two years ago. On November 9th the band will release their second effort Through The Mirror.
Athrox music style is a powerful mixture of heavy metal with thrash elements, but characterized by many different elements which brought the band to a great response from critics and audience. 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.
