Raw, strong and bold – these are the words that characterize the trio.
Although the influences are obvious, AXiS gives the meaning of blues a new perspective – somehow like a wolf in sheep's clothing – that gives the trio an unique flair on the current music market.
With roots in a little Serbian town, named Kladovo, situated at the shore of the Danube, but whose soul wanders around the American grouds, where the blues was born.
The band recorded its first album around fall 2016 in a boheme studio located in Belgrade’s suburbs. Being recorded live, with only small retouches, the band’s debut album is designed to express the primordial, scorching and direct sound that takes birth when the band members put their imagination together.
2017 marks the bands most active year, playing almost all the blues festivals in Romania, like:Focșani Blues Festival, Open Air Blues Festival Brezoi, WolfBlues Gărâna, Blues Con-Fusion Suceava, Jimbo Blues Jimbolia.
In the spring of 2018, AXiS was the ambassador of Romania at the European Blues Challange, in Hell, Norway, attending also one of the biggest blues festivals in Norway, Blues in Hell. The arrival of spring also marks the release of their debut album, First Punch.

“…as expected, AXiS celebrates a completely raw, unalerted and authentic sound and this exact condition is fulfilled by Silviu’s guitar playing, which brings me to the conclusion that the man knows his craft” – Mike Kempf, Soundanalyse (DE)
“The music AXiS makes is not hard to anticipate, because you know from the beginning what to expect … it’s bare naked, straight in your face rock ‘n’ roll with flavors of guys like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Led Zeppelin…” – Zoltan Varga, Press Alert (RO)
“…musically speaking, these three have a clear direction – to overwhelm us, from the first guitar chords, as their debut album’s name suggests, and strike just like a boxer in the first seconds of the round.” – Emil Raducanu, Arta Sunetelor (RO)
