Alphavox
Carlos Guzman - Richard Paz

Home Gothic/Ethereal Synthpop/Newwave Industrial/EBM Charts/Releases Song-of-the-week

Artist Listing: A - F G - R S - Z

    Alphavox' sound may be defined as Interstellar Trip-Hop, influenced by British Bristol movement of Massive Attack and Portishead, as well as drum'n'bass styles. Electronic-pop bands like Depeche Mode can also be cited as an influence. Elements like thick lo-fi grooves and dense drones, funky bass, acoustic guitar and ethereal melodic electric guitar leads serve as a canvas for sci-fi inspired lyrics and vocal melodies.

2000: Alphavox

Track Listing: 1- Foreign Land 2- Blood of Heroes 3- Religion 4-Enigma of Love 5- Space Age Lovesong 6-Method of Madness 7-We won't go 8-Today Anymore 9-Where have u taken me?

This yet unsigned band was formed in 1999 by C. Guzman and R. Paz in Miami, FL. Their demo debut album, mostly comparable to Massive Attack in style, holds some catchy synth arrangements coupled with drum'n'bass acoustics, sounding at times like INXS and Simply Red. It only takes a couple of listens to their 9 song demo CD to find yourself humming "Miss Eloquence is moving within this Foreign Land...". Unfortunately the album lacks a "hit" type of a song that usually attracts production companies for a record deal.
