Symfobia is a symphonic-metal band from Slovakia and some of the members are Hungarian.
The songs are dominated by orchestral arrangements, prominent guitar solos and choir parts.
The band has used a professional choir, which is not common on the Slovak metal scene.
Symfobia is one of the few symphonic-metal bands in the world that has two female-fronted singers.
The band’s first music video:
The contrasting voices and the performance of the singers offer the band the opportunity to experiment creatively and to enhance the monumentality of the songs.
Lyrics for the band are written by talented text writer Rastislav Getta.
Symfobia’s songs push to change the minds of each and every one of us, to become conscious beings in the real offline world and not end up as slaves believing every message served up by media.
The depth of the texts is often hidden in metaphors referring to the concepts of a right attitude to life.
They draw attention to today’s diseases, such as loss of critical thinking, over-consumption, and environmental misconduct.
