Ansoticca - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.




Europe can get excited, in particular fans of gothic metal, because who thought that there is no movement in that genre anymore will get surprised by this new band.

AnsoticcA manages to take new musical paths while at the same time using the strength of gothic metal. They come up with a debut release that contains everything that you can expect from a good album. Epic melodies combined with heavy guitars and a voice with a high grade of recognition give the band around charismatic front singer Carie a new unique sound. The remarkable voice allow comparison with Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation) as well as the powerful voice of Annette Olzen (Nightwish) or even the classic sound of Tarja Turunen (Ex-Nightwish).

The musicians, who have played in various well-known bands like Biest, Marya Roxx, Graaf or Respawn discovered their singer, Carie van Heden, at the dutch Rockacademie, where also Floor of After Forever got the possibility to develop her talent.
For the recordings of the album the band could also get in company with Johan van Stratum (bassist of Stream of Passion) as guest musician. He said :"AnsoticcA for me is music with a lot of potential, they can make it big I think. All the songs sound really good, I'm gonna keep track of this band and so should everyone else." Ruud Jolie (guitarist of Within Temptation) is first of all convinced by the compositions: "In my opinion "Rise" is a really fancy song. Caries voice matches perfectly to the sound. It's very beautiful. The refrain is a strong anthem. It's surprising, that the refrain only appears one time. That's unusual but pretty cool!!!"
