Levinia was founded in 2015 by former Aerius band-mates, John Pinon and Dylan Suierveld. After Aerius’ mutual disbandment, Pinon and Suierveld decided to take a break from the Los Angeles Power Metal scene, and start a new melodic metal project named, Lavinium.
After recording the instrumental tracks to their demo EP, the guitarist and drummer decided that they needed to bring on a lead vocalist. After a few promising but disappointing attempts, they finally decided to bring on former FifthLaw vocalist and solo artist, Court Henson, to fill the spot.
After Court finished writing the vocal melodies and lyrics for the demo, the trio immediately went into the studio to complete recording of their demo EP, Alluring Fear. After the successful release of their demo EP in January of 2018, the band immediately began writing and planning for their official debut EP release. They decided to record and work with known LA producer, Charles Kallaghan Massabo.
After the recording and writing process was done, the band’s sound had changed so drastically, they decided to change the name from Lavinium to Levinia, to match the sound of their official release. The band is beginning to realize that they are on the cusp of creating a revolutionary hybrid genre of music, one that hasn’t been heard before. And as the release date of their official debut EP, Liberation approaches, they are looking forward to reintroducing heavy music into the mainstream music world! Levinia is now working alongside their new producer Brandon Freisson, (Halestorm, Nickleback, The Hu, and Papa Roach Fame).
