Zephyra, hailing from Sweden, plays melodic metal.
The various influences are taken from thrash, power and melodic death metal.
Zephyra is fronted by female growls and clean vocals.
The band started for real in 2011, with a very clear agenda, moving forward.
Since then, the band has released a couple of EP:s, played shows around Sweden (among others on NEMIS Stage on Metaltown 2012), done live shows on the radio, and frequently been aired on the american Women of Metal Radio Show (Zephyra was also chosen to be their band of the month in february 2013).
Zephyra finds it very important to work with people as eager as themselves, and appreciates the great folks around them.
Hearts and souls are put into the band, and the direction is always forward.
The next natural step is to show the world a well produced album, to break new grounds for the future!
