RockmusicRaider Review - Xandria - Ravenheart - Album CoverThe first time I came across Xandria was with their second album Ravenheart. Not sure what really got my interest going to be honest. It probably was their unique style they displayed at that time. A German band, rocking in a somewhat delirious and quite poppy brand of Gothic Rock and Metal. And – on top – providing a much needed counterweight to other upcoming bands like Within Temptation back then.

Their style – or more their interesting mix of styles – is somewhat addictive and has this tendency to grow on you. For sure, they were not ground breakers in this genre. But they were able carve out a niche for themselves, starting with Ravenheart.
