Anfitriteby greekwizard @ June 21st, 2013 | Updated by greekwizard @ November 30th, 2014
The band was founded in 2012 as a really serious project of Symphonic Epic Power Metal founded by the keyboardist, writer, researcher, poet and composer Sting Weiss (The Wizard) with the help of drummer Ana Alvarez, after dissolving his previous project Tatarimokke (Avant garde Gothic Doom Metal). The band received the beautiful name of Anfitrite (in spanish) in honor of the Greek goddess of calm sea Amphitrite, his lyrics are inspired by mythology (especially ancient Greece) and the cult expressed by women in ancient pagan cultures.
After several lineup changes the band consolidates after the arrival of Sara Rodríguez (Sara Frozen) excellent and charismatic soprano vocalist, after leaving his previous group (Fade Away) and Islander Boza (Highlander) experienced guitarist and great friend of Sting, with great innovative spirit and unparalleled feeling. From that moment, the influences of the band considerably expand and way more ventures in the Symphonic Pagan Metal.
In 2014 during the recording of their first album, Ana Alvarez left the band for personal reasons and soon Emir Galindez (Duvalier) is offered to cover the vacant drummer, later becoming the official drummer of the project.
Currently the band is constantly evolving and already has many followers worldwide. In October 2014, after months of recording and hard working team, "Origo" is released their demo and first album.
