The German symphonic metal band Xandria has released fourteen singles in as many years. During their tenure among the metal community, they’ve had three different singers: Lisa Middelhauve (2003-2008), Manuela Kraller (2012) and Dianne van Giersbergen (2014-2017).
This megamix chronicles the band’s musical evolution, from the more Gothic influenced metal of their early years, to the Middle Eastern instrumentation in mid-career, to the massive orchestrations and complex compositions of their most recent work.
