FiXT is proud to announce the roster signing of Rock Metal Djent artist Andromida.
“Labels have always been something I’ve been skeptical of as an independent musician. I’ve heard the horror stories of all the bad deals floating out there in the industry. I knew that if I was ever going to sign with a label, it needed to be a label that truly put their artists first. FiXT is exactly that. I’m excited to be part of the FiXT family and look forward to our future endeavors.” – Ramon Gutierrez, Andromida
Andromida is a one man metal project by composer and producer, Ramon Gutierrez. Diagnosed as legally blind at a young age, Ramon naturally felt a strong connection with music. At the age of 3, he began learning the violin. While learning the violin, it quickly became apparent that he was unable to read sheet music provided by his teachers, but that didn’t stop him. He went on to learn the instrument by ear, eventually playing pieces by composers like Bach at a very young age. At the age of 11, Ramon decided to take on the guitar. Just like the violin, he learned completely by ear, only this time he did not have any help from teachers. Ramon is entirely self-taught on guitar.
Eventually he became fascinated with the idea of writing and producing music. He spent hours upon hours, days upon days, teaching himself how to arrange songs, produce, and mix and master his own music in his late high school years. During his time in college, Ramon began taking steps to start pursuing music professionally. After trying and failing several times to form a band, he eventually decided to take on the endeavor by himself, thus starting Andromida in 2016.
Since 2016, Andromida’s music has reached over 2,000,000 listeners on Spotify as well as amassing over 50,000 social media followers, including 20,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel.
“We’re extremely proud to welcome Andromida to the FiXT roster. He’s already established himself as a tour-de-force instrumental artist and producer, and I can’t wait to see him unlock even more reach with a full album of vocal features and the support of the FiXT team behind him.” – James Rhodes (FiXT Vice President & Co-Founder)
“Really excited to bring Andromida into the FiXT family. His blend of heavy riffs, smashing beats, and retro synths are sure to make many of you new fans if you’re not familiar with him already. Help me welcome Andromida to the FiXT family by giving him a follow and checking out his new track “Conquer” feat. Fight the Fade.” – Klayton (Celldweller, Scandroid, Circle Of Dust, FiXT President & Co-Founder)
The signing kicks off with a brutal rock single “Conquer” (feat. Fight The Fade) the next single to materialize on the FiXT: Radium Compilation. With an aggressive vocal performance from Fight The Fade front man Zene Smith, coupled with provocative lyrics Andromida pushes the dial to one hundred. The track encompasses both brutal and ethereal elements, pushing heavy guitars with syncopated synthesizers. The result is a both an atmospheric single wrapped around a metalcore finish for a savage introduction to FiXT‘s newest signed artist as he explores the human condition.
“I’m always heavily inspired by epic soundtracks and crazy synths, so I really wanted to make a song that pulled from those inspirations while still being a very hooky and catchy song,” explains Andromida. “The end result is something that I think is super unique but still feels familiar. It’s no doubt a catchy metal/rock song, but there are some really unconventional uses of synths here. Several of the guitar riffs actually have synths running through guitar amps replacing certain notes of what was originally written with guitars, giving certain riffs a really cold and robotic feel to them which I think adds so much to the song.“
