Lyria is a Brazilian symphonic alternative metal band from Rio de Janeiro founded by the mezzo-soprano and songwriter Aline Happ in 2012.
The band is considered one of the greatest names of the new generation of Brazilian Heavy Metal with two albums released through successful crowdfunding campaigns counting with fans around the world. Their sound is a mix of different kinds of music styles like celtic, thrash, symphonic, gothic and industrial, balancing the right dose of punch to build a Metal fan base with the correct amount of melody to please fans that are not so used to heavier styles.
Focused on themes containing healing messages, Lyria tries to help people through the power of music. Their lyrics can be interpreted as ways of overcoming bad moments and advises to face the difficulties of life, addressing subjects such as autism, anxiety and depression.
The band has been performing several concerts in Brazil, also featuring acoustic concerts at medieval and thematic festivals. Moreover, Lyria is one of the pioneers in the mode of online concerts transmitted by streaming, directly from a studio, performing online concerts where fans from all parts of the world participate.
