The Band


The story of Exlibris so far

Combining the energy of traditional heavy metal and hard rock with melodic hooks and complex arrangements since the end of 2003, Exlibris stands for rockin’ guitars, distinct rythms, epic orchestrations and powerful lead vocals.

Exlibris 2018

3 years after their critically acclaimed album Aftereal, Poland’s top melodic metal act Exlibris return with their third studio album – Innertia – their best work to date!

Innertia strikes the perfect balance between heavy and melodic, modern and traditional, complex and catchy. Combining powerful riffs with big melodic hooks, topped off with carefully arranged orchestrations and a healthy dose of both modern and vintage keyboards – it holds all the ingredients of a successful melodic metal release. Ideal for fans of bands like Avantasia, Kamelot and Stratovarius.

Exlibris are one of the most hardworking bands in the Polish metal scene with Innertia being their fourth full-length release in barely over four years – beginning with the release of their debut album Humagination in late 2013 (album of the month, according to Metal Hammer Poland) and including an exceptional live DVD produced and released by band members themselves. Through extensive touring and festival appearances, Exlibris have also become one of the best live bands around – experienced in all kinds of shows from headlining tours to support acts (for bands such as WASP, Primal Fear and Lordi) to festival appearances – including playing the largest open air music event in Europe – the Woodstock Festival Poland – twice.

In 2018, with the new album, Exlibris’ main focus will be expanding their reach to metal fans in Europe and beyond
