Band info

Having started as a one man project, by Christian Ayala, Avandra is a Puerto Rican progressive metal band borne of hurricane fueled strife to become one of the scenes breakout acts. After releasing their first record, Tymora high demand left Ayala feeling obligated to bring his work to the stage. Soon after Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, and alone in the dark, Christian wrote most of the second record, released in April 2019. The third album was released in 2020 and a new album will see daylight at PP Europe 2022.
