Hexperos is a neoclassical darkwave group from Italy founded in October 2004 by Alessandra Santovito, former vocalist of Gothica, and Francesco Forgione, a creative double bass player, keyboardist, guitarist and composer. Their style is reminiscent of chamber music.Read More...
Alessandra is a talented soprano, wielding various styles of singing from Mediterranean to northern European, from ancient to modern. Like Gothica, the compositions contrast low bass tones with heavenly voices, but the music is calmer and softer. Hexperos plays a somber and sublime "music of love and mystery".
The debut album, "The Garden of the Hesperides", came out in September 2007 on Equilibrium Music. The next album, "The Veil of Queen Mab" was released in September 2010, also on the EQM label.
