Asphodelia is a dark symphonic metal act founded in 2016 in Foggia, Italy, by Samuela “Samah” Fuiani (vocals and keyboards) and Ruggero “Lordian” Doronzo (guitar), and currently including Davide Ricciardi (bass), Giuseppe Centonza (drums) and Gianni Colonna (guitar). Their sound blends symphonic and choral sonorities, electronics and Mediterranean echoes into a solid metal frame with a strongly dark mood. Their lyrics are usually centered on the theme of the afterlife, on the life and death dichotomy, the fleetingness of time and the misery of the human condition.
The band is named after the asphodel, typical Mediterranean flower connected to the ancient Greek Underworld: in the ancient Greek mythology, the Asphodel Meadows is a place where the indifferent souls, who lived a life of neither good or evil, are sent to live after death.
The band released a promo EP entitled 'Vengeance' on May 26, 2016, receiving enthusiastic response from their fanbase. In May 2017 they joined the prestigious roster of The Flaming Arts Agency, leading to important stage experiences such as the Female Metal Voices Tour Russia 2017 as main support to The Agonist, Sirenia and Cellar Darling.
Asphodelia have recently signed to Mighty Music for the release of their debut album 'Welcome Apocalypse', scheduled for April 20th. The band is soon to start a European tour in support of the album release.
