Biography

Agrippa93 (Uh’-GRIP-pah Ninety-Three) was founded as a solo project by lead singer, composer and producer “Agrippa” in Connecticut in 2004. A long-time musician with a special interest in digital production, Agrippa began releasing original music exclusively through the Internet, with viral marketing picking up followers for singles and videos, with songs like “Beneath the Veil of Lies”, “Open Wound” and “Scorched Earth” sparking interest through YouTube™ in recent years.

With growing demand for live performances, Agrippa sought out other like-minded musicians, refined their sound and expanded their song list. By 2008 Agrippa93 had recorded collaborations including “City of Pyramids”. New members joined the ranks contributing to the Agrippa93 sound creating a musical alchemy of several genre influences including metal, industrial, progressive, and more.

Agrippa93’s 2009 debut album release, “Beneath the Cypress Tree ©” has garnered positive attention and reviews on iTunes™, Amazon™, and is the band’s first dual release (both packaged CD and digital). The 11 song CD on Sickle Pation Records® includes the band’s trademark blend of the Gothic and Industrial, with classical riffs and soaring synthesizer work, led by Agrippa’s unique voice delivering dark lyrics and thoughts on occult and the actions of mankind. Turning a piercing eye on today’s world, Agrippa93 exposes corruption within governments and religions, damages done to the earth and human spirit, and the power of the supernatural.
