XANDRIA’s roots are in the mid-nineties. In 1994, inspired by bands like Tiamat, Therion and Paradise Lost, the band’s later founder Marco Heubaum and a drummer friend set their first musical steps in the fascinating cross-over between metal and atmospheric soundscapes. Soon, they formed a band, with Marco sharing vocals with a female singer. However, artistic differences caused the band to break up after their first gigs in the summer of 1997. Marco continued to pursue his clearly defined musical ideas and went in search of new musicians to record demo versions of his songs.


With Sacrificium, released in May, XANDRIA take another big musical step. Once again, the orchestrations are arranged by Joost van den Broek, who now also acts as a co-producer. In addition to the real string instruments and authentic Celtic whistles and pipes, the band works with a full classical choir – the renowned Dutch “Pa’dam” choir – which they have never done before. Another milestone for Xandria´s sound! Sacrificium makes the band’s highest chart ratings to date, reaching no. 25 in the German album charts, as well as entering the charts in other countries, including – for the first time – the UK and the USA.

With this and with the Sacrificium tour being the band’s most successful tour to date, we can only be excited about how the story will continue…
