Voltax is one of Mexico’s premier heavy metal bands and it 2016 they celebrated their 10th anniversary. Voltax formed in 2006, and in the same year they released their first demo, Discharge. A little after that they signed with Blower Records, and in 2007 the band released their self-titled debut album. With that record the band started to make some noise in South America and Europe, leading to an appearance on the 2009 Earache Records compilation album Heavy Metal Killers alongside bands such as Enforcer, In Solitude and Cauldron. Later that year the German High Roller Records label re-released the debut album on vinyl.
In 2010 they released their sophomore Fugitive State of Mind, again under Blower Records and with the artwork of Dimitar Nikolov (Ruthless, Fatal Violence, Air Raid) who created a white tiger within the context of a futuristic post-apocalyptic city that later became an icon of the Mexican metal scene. It is also the album that features “Acero Inmortal” (Immortal Steel), the band’s classic track which has become a hymn of sorts in the Mexican scene.
Hiding Into Flames, the 3rd album from Voltax arrived in 2013 via Sade Records. It sold well in territories such as Germany, Greece, United States, Colombia, Norway and Japan and consolidated the band as a vital force of the Mexican scene until now, 2017, where they have already recorded No Retreat…You Surrender” which is ready to be unleashed on April 14.
