About Alkaloid:  
Alkaloid is a new band created by five good friends, who happen to be well-known musicians of the metal genre. Their intention is to go beyond any limit that metal music sub-genres might have these days and create the world's most extreme Prog Metal band.

They define themselves through the field of tension created between musical opposites. All band members are active death metal musicians who nevertheless all have a much broader view of music than blast beats and growls. They establish from the beginning that they have many faces, and that oscillating between (seemingly) contrary or mutually exclusive styles is an important factor.
