Biography

Spain (2005 – 2011)

The idea of the band came up in Albacete, Spain in the summer of 2004 from the meeting between Itea Benedicto (vocals and composition) and Jesús Díez (guitars and composition). They began to look for a way to reflect the ideas and hopes they had in mind. Something original, different and special, finding their own way between the heavy and symphonic branches of metal, with important influences of classical music and a slight folk influence.

It´s characteristic style put together powerful riffs and drums with an important melodic charge, great orchestration and the versatile voice of the soprano Itea Benedicto, getting influences from several Metal genres (like thrash, progressive, gothic, power…) as well as from Classical Music (specially from Baroque and Romanticism) and, sometimes, from Folk. In their songs it´s usual to find passages of high elegance and with a lot of arrangements, sometimes with some theatricality.

There was still another year to pass for Níobeth to get a consolidated formation and so the work began to give results, approximately in August 2005 with the first concerts of the band.

So, they prepared their first studio demo, recorded and mixed finally in August and September 2006. Under the name “Infinite Ocean Of Stars”, the demo includes 6 tracks, five of own composition and an adaptation of The Magic Flute - Queen Of The Night Aria by W.A. Mozart.

In the months after the demo was completed, some changes in the formation happened when Santi (keyboard and violin) and Alberto (drums) joined the band.
