Estonian progressive metal band X-Panda is going to release their second studio album "Reflections" on 10.10.2016

X-Panda was founded in 2009 in Tartu, Estonia. Their critically acclaimed debut album Flight of Fancy (2011) was nominated album of the year in metal category of Estonian Music Awards. X-Panda has been performing at music festivals in Latvia, Finland and Lithuanina. The band has played several times in Holland: Progmotion festival in 2014 followed by concerts at Cultuurpodium Boerderj, W2 Poppodium and Den Bosch in 2015.

The style of X-Panda can be described as energetic and theatrical, it is both progressive while simultaneously accessible an
d catchy. Their music has a powerful melodic edge as well as a great metallic basis as well as jazz fusion hooks and enhancements - it is a mixture of progressive metal, fusion, industrial and motion picture soundtracks. Fusing diferent genres and using live visuals enables the band to create shows with wide spectrum of emotions and dynamics


Singer Tamar Nugis says:
For some time we have been working on our second studio album. We have been especially active for the last year. In the autumn 2015, Kaarel, our composer took a three months hiatus from his other activities and concentrated on composing in the middle of the forests of Viljandi county. The recording process started at the beginning of 2016. First- our drummer laid down the beats in Finland, Sonic Pump Studio and in the following months we recorded the guitars as well bass guitars in Tallinn.

Our album is special also because we involved an orchestra and a choir into the recording process. 
 X-Panda got help from Tartu University Symphonic Orchestra (conductor Lauri Sirp) and E STuudio Youth Choir (conductor Külli Lokko). We’re really pleased that we managed to hold a recording session involving so many people!

X-Panda just released their first single "The Game," from upcoming album.
