Biography:
Sofía Moreno, Morita Bastías y Paulina “Poly” Cádiz lit the fuse of Berberis in April 2004. All three had experience in music, with Poly who had participated in more bands, including the thrashy Squad. Soon they were joined by Angelina Sandoval, whose flexibility allowed her to mix melody vocals with guttural screams.

After musical differences with the original trio, Sandoval was replaced by Gabriela Valdivia, who kept the counterpoint to the stormy cries now issued by Poly with her lyrical singing. Their music moved between an extended range, which ranged from classical to brutal death metal with thrash as the base rail.

Under a sensual but aggressive onstage presence they roamed the chilean stages with relative acceptance, featureing a set list based on own songs adorned with the cover of Alice Cooper’s “Brutal Planet”. Two years and 18 concerts after its formation, they choose to follow their musical paths separately.

Lineup:
Paulina “Poly” Cádiz – Bass, Vocals
Sofía Moreno – Guitar

Stockholm all female quartet APHRODITE would provide an early career stepping stone for musicians that subsequently came to the fore with the hard hitting DRAIN STH. The original lineup underwent many direction changes in both musical and image. Guitarist Flavia Canel and drummer Martina Axén have been together in many acts starting with Punk band LIVIN' SACRIFICE. As this act progressed the sound developed into more of a Hard Rock vein, consequently changing titles to APHRODITE in 1985. They had the song "Playing With Fire" featured on the compilation 'Sommarrock 85', followed up with an eponymous mini-album in 1986.
