Eight Lives Down are a 4-piece extreme metal band, founded by Greek-Kiwi vocalist and lyricist Aliki Katriou. Originally formed in 2016 with British guitarist James Scott, bassist Marcin Orczyk from Poland, and Brazilian drummer Rodrigo Moraes Cruz, they released their first EP entitled "May Cause Death" in the same year. In 2017, Scott left the band and French guitarist Paul Allain joined in his place.
With the aim to inject innovation into the metal scene, the band's main sound is based in groove, thrash and prog metal, blending in elements of various musical genres and cultures. Katriou adds her impressive repertoire of clean and distorted vocals to create a truly unique tone - unmistakably heavy and angry, yet refreshingly different and unpredictable. Eight Lives Down, particularly Aliki Katriou, are known for their entertainingly energetic live performances.
2019 saw Eight Lives Down playing shows in and around London, as well as in Germany and the Netherlands, reaching the semi-finals of Metal2TheMasses London, as well as the finals of the Female Metal Event - FemME battles.
The band is currently preparing for an even more active year in 2020, with many more international gigs and the much anticipated release of their debut album in January.
