Dr.X is a band formed in early 2013 in Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona). The band was originally formed by Alex, Guillem and Mayer, friends and bandmates since they were 15 years old.

From this point, they focused on developing ideas for compositions and started the search to find the ideal drummer and vocalist. After several auditions with different drummers, they discovered Victor during a concert of his band in a local bar, where they proposed an audition to him which pleasantly surprised the rest of the band, incorporating him into it.

As they continued to find a singer, they finished the composing the songs that would become their first EP and entered to record them in July 2013, even knowing how risky it was to do it without a vocalist. After the instrumental recording, they proposed to Alba, the singer of Guillem’s parallel band by then, to join the group and she gratefully accepted despite living considerably far away from the rest of the band.

When the band was fully formed, they locked in the rehearsal room (which was Alex’s basement) to have the vocal lines ready for the voice recording, which took place during the months of September and October.

Their first EP, Meet the Doctor, came to light on November 4, 2013 under the production of Robert Martínez (BDP, Symmawrath, Ktulu... Calima with a Grammy nomination in 2006) and with the collaboration of singer Elisa C. Martin (Dark Moor, Dreamaker, Hamka and Fairyland). The drum tracks were recorded at Sound of the Kings Studio (Barcelona) by José Luis Climent and Robert Martínez while the other instruments and vocals were mixed, engineered and mastered by Robert Martínez at Rub Productions.

After 6 months of gigs around Catalonia, Madrid and France, playing with international bands as Satan (UK), Sign Of The Jackal (IT), National Suicide (IT), Striker (CAN), Screamer (SWE), Evil Invaders (BEL), Elvenstorm (FR) and Helstar (USA), making themselves known on several radio programs and obtaining good reviews of their EP, their performance and their new songs, Guillem Martinez, founder guitarist, suddenly decided to take his own way and he moved to Sweden. Despite the news, the band pretends to carry on with the rest members and finish their “Get Injected Tour”.

Once finished the pending shows, the 4th remaining members spent some months in anonymity to meet themselves as a band, compose and record their first LP, “Reborn”. It will be released in early 2016 with unpublished songs, a new sound and other changes that will surprise a lot of their followers.
