Aviana is a new, ambitious metal band that has its core in Gothenburg, Sweden. The band began writing their debut album in 2015 and the result was 'Polarize' - an album that mixes heavy, aggressive pieces with melodic sing a longs and lyrics with a clear, strong message. The album was released via Rambo Music (Sony Music) on the 20th of January this year.
With a strong will to be the best possible live band, unforgettable live performances on the stage is always the main idea in the process of writing new music. Aviana are now working hard to leave a mark on the metal scene with their debut album and touring as much as possible. The band has their influences from a wide range of artists, where bands like Northlane and Fit for a King contribute to the darker parts and bands like Bring Me The Horizon represents the melodic influence.
The band's debut album “Polarize” has been met by critical acclaim from around the world and has been featured in multiple magazines such as “Close-up magazine” and “Sweden Rock Magazine”, both of which gave the album 8/10 in their reviews.
After doing a release show for Polarize in their hometown of Gothenburg on 3rd of March, the band have been touring extensively in both United Kingdom, Europe and in Sweden.
As of their latest successful run in Europe the band came out as main support for Japanese Metalcore giants CRYSTAL LAKE including playing the Main Stage on a sold out Morecore Festival in Cologne, Germany along with shows in London, Manchester, Zürich, Paris, Vienna and more.
The band is now in the studio, working on their second full length album, which is expected to be released in 2018 to follow up the success of Polarize in 2017. Stay tuned!
