Already in his early childhood days, Marco Heubaum (guitarist, singer, and main songwriter), discovered his love for music, a passion that gradually strengthened and spread its roots over the years leading to the formation of German symphonic metal band XANDRIA. Heubaum’s juvenile musical influences reach from Swedish pop heroes ABBA, to Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath and Jimi Hendrix, crossing into the 80’s roots of metal with the likes of Iron Maiden and Metallica, and then to Gothic-Metal pioneers like Tiamat, Therion and Paradise Lost. These core influences characterize and inspire a sound that ushers in the incredible depth and unique richness that is XANDRIA.
