The band was formed under the name ECHOVOLT in July 2002 by the Andrade brothers in Chiclana de la Frontera, CA (Spain). After two months Echovolt decided to bring out their own songs and recorded their first demo tape entitled "ECHOVOLT". However, it was not until the beginning of 2003 when the group travelled to New York for an interview with J.W Johnson, Senior Director of Publications and Public Relations at B.M.I. in U.S.A., after Johnson showed an interest in the band's work. Following some advice given by B.M.I., Echovolt readied themselves to record their first album which was produced by English Sound Engineer Colin Preston who had previously recorded the band's second EP "Infected". At the end of 2009 the band released their debut album "In Control" which was distributed by “Santo Grial Records”. The L.P. has gained a wealth of positive reviews praising the work of the group, highlighting the quality and freshness of their songs. After an extensive tour of Spain and France lasting two years, the band has released their new album “Odds on the Underdog” in April 2013 under the record label “Zyon Records”. This new work is also produced by Colin Preston and Pinsho Andrade, and mixed by Jacobo Fernandez. Echovolt has already presented their new album in an exclusive tour in the main cities of Spain as Seville, Cadiz and Madrid, achieving the best possible critics from specialized media. It is available on iTunes, Spotify and other digital platforms.

Want to use these tracks in a commercial project/video?
I am somewhat picky when it comes to metal and hard rock. However, this album gives me hope for new music. Echovolt knocks it out of the park with this rather neat electro hard rock album. It is aggressive but not too busy. Highly recommend this one!
Tuve la oportunidad de verlos en directo este pasado fin de semana en la Sala Imagina, Cádiz, pufffffffffffffffff!!Geniales!!
