“We definitely have an awareness that the metal and rock scene has a really long way to go in terms of diversity and being a safe gig space for women, trans people and non-binary people” | MusicRadar

Hailing from London, but consisting of an international line-up of musicians from England, Wales, Greece and  Italy, Hawxx are one of the fastest rising alt-metal bands on the scene today. They fuse punishingly heavy riffs and technical proficiency with melodic songcraft, four-part vocal harmonies, and purposeful lyricism that champions self-empowerment and rails against oppressive beauty standards and violence against women.

Guitarists Anna Papadimitriou and Hannah Staphnill make up the band’s Greek and Welsh contingents respectively. The pair first came together around the end of 2018, when the then bandless Papadimitriou would frequent Waterloo’s Alaska Studios for solo rehearsal sessions. At the time, Staphnill was working there as an engineer.
