Author Daniel Agapito - 27.3.2024

The horror metal band Alchemia, which mixes elements of symphonic music, horror soundtracks with heavy metal, symphonic metal, gothic, industrial, black and death metal, confirmed its presence at the Summer Breeze festival in Brazil and Germany. Formed by Victor Hugo Piiroja (vocals), Rodrigo Maciel (guitar), G.Morazza (bass), Alex Cristopher (drums) and Wally D’Alessandro (keyboard), the group is currently producing its second album, “Become Human”, which will be launched in 2024.

Alchemia‘s music is an engaging blend of darkness and cinematic soundscapes, exploring themes of self-reflection, consciousness, mental imprisonment, phobias and psychological disorders. Their debut album, “Inception”, was released in 2021 by Italian record label WormholeDeath Records. The album, mixed and mastered by Danish Tue Madsen, was acclaimed by both critics and the public, and took the band on an international tour that passed through Europe and Latin America.

The band will play in Summer Breeze Brasil, in São Paulo’s Memorial da América Latina on April 26th. The presentation at Summer Breeze Open Air in Dinkelsbühl (ALE) will take place on August 16th.

First we received the invitation to play at the second edition of Summer Breeze Brasil, which made us extremely excited, as this is the biggest metal festival in Latin America and it is a great honor to be able to participate with Alchemia”, declared Victor Hugo Piiroja . “But as 2024 is being very special for us, in addition to producing the new album, we will play at both editions of Summer Breeze! We are honored with the invitation from Summer Breeze Germany, especially as it will be the 25th anniversary edition of the festival, which is one of the biggest metal bands in the world. Germany is our second home, we have our European base in the country and it is where we are producing the successor to ‘Inception’, ‘Become Human’. For Alchemia, it will be a unique opportunity to present our music to thousands of people“, concluded Victor Hugo Piiroja, the vocalist.
