"Alpha Decay… “Alexandria” is Calling…"

It’s always awesome when you come across a local act that shows a ton of potential.
Recently, I went to see the amazing Angel Vivaldi at a show in Tampa and one of the opening acts intrigued me greatly. It pumps me up when I see up and coming acts shredding and putting a show on like they’ve been running the stage for a while.
Alpha Decay took me aback when they started their first tune. With a lot of local acts claiming to run the gamut of heaviness and prog, I typically don’t pay too much mind to them unless of course they capture my attention nearly immediately. They pulled me in immediately with their awesome melodies and badass vocals.
I had to run to their merch table to grab their album after their set because it NEEDED to be part of my collection.
Delightfully prog-filled and entirely what I hope for when I listen to what I consider the epitome Progressive Metal; Alpha Decay is massively talented and I hope they go the distance.
I look forward to future releases and am glad to have added this album to my musical library.

Alexandria - 2015



Alpha Decay is an epic progressive metal band from Tampa, Florida. Formed in 2008, the band played out and toured as an instrumental act for years looking for the right frontman to complete the lineup. They built a solid fan base without a singer, but one night in the parking lot at the iconic Brass Mug in Tampa, during an Alestorm concert which Alpha Decay was opening for, a voice rang out and they knew they had found the one. Taking a break from playing live, they began restructuring their music to better fit the vocal arrangements. A six piece consisting of singer Michael Calza, guitarists Jennifer Allen and Matt Larsen, keyboardist Roy Stegman, bassist Bill Holton, and drummer Kris Huffman, Alpha Decay use metal as a backbone, and blend elements of Classical, Jazz and World Music to create their distinct sound. The beginning of 2016 saw their first ep release, "Alexandria", and they are tour ready and expect to have full length album release in 2018.
