Esperoza was founded Autumn 2010 in Chisinau, Moldova. Founding members Zoya (vocals, lyrics) and Dmitrii (guitar, composition & arranges) were disgusted with music that is considered today as “Symphonic Metal”, and decided to create their own band, that would resemble a real Symphonic Metal.
For the most time in past two years Esperoza was focused on creating material and finding fellow musicians, the latter, unfortunately, was fruitless, but the band did not give up that easily.
So on December 31 2012 they released their debut E.P. “Tempest”. In august, 23, 2013 they released non-album single “E Tardi!” Members just kept coming and going, until winter-spring 2014. Full band opens new possibilities, so they played a couple of shows. And finally on Solstice, June, 21, 2014 they released a full length eponymous album.
Musically, it is based upon classics of Death and Black Metal genres, combined with arranges for a symphonic orchestra, and a real dramatic soprano. Lyrically, the band addresses intrapersonal conflicts, personal enlightenment, hypocrisy and malice of society, ecological problems, survival in unfriendly world and to some extent sci-fi.
