I'm Alexandra, the female bassist for 'Origins Of Adam' here in the Phoenix area. We are an original hybrid-Metal band mixing the raw influences of Lamb of God, Amon Amarth, Behemoth with some Thrash Metal influences of Exodus, Testament, etc., along with with some groove Metal and old school Metal. On vocals is my long time musical collaborator & life partner, Douglas Diercks, who has an amazing range and ability to sing every style of Metal, guitarist, Todd Nelson and and on drums, Troy Yancy. We are all veterans of the Phoenix Metal Scene and have played in several notable bands here over the years. I played with the legendary 'St. Madness' for 4 years as well as 'Sulfuric Angel' & 'Secrets Of Lost Empires' and plenty of other bands in other cities, played many shows and also have recording and some regional touring experience in the past.There are several songs for you to check out on Reverberation nation, as well as under 'Origins of Adam' here in bandmix. Also, find us on F-a-c-e-b-o-o-K !!
