Airborn is a power metal band based in Turin, Italy. The band was formed in 1995.


Airborn was founded in 1995 by the vocalist and guitarist Alessio Perardi and bass guitar player Alberto Leschi, later joined by the guitarist Roberto Capucchio and the drummer Tony Serra.

In 2001, the band recorded its first album, Against The World[1] that was engineered by Piet Sielck (Iron Savior, Blind Guardian) and released by the Hamburg label Remedy Records. The same production team released a second album, D-Generation[2] in 2003.

In 2005, the band contributed to two tribute albums: Eagleution - Tribute To Saxon, covering "Unleash The Beast" and The Revivalry - Tribute To Running Wild, covering "Ballad Of William Kidd".

After a break because of line-up changes, in 2008, Airborn released a third album, Legend Of Madog[3] with a new bass guitar player, Domenico Buratti, and a new drummer, Roberto Gaia.

In 2011, the original bass guitar player, Leschi, died because of leukaemia. As a tribute to him and to celebrate the first album's tenth anniversary, the band released Demos & Rarities Collection, an anthology of rare and previously unreleased material.

In 2014, the band renewed partnerships with both the producer Piet Sielck and Remedy Records and a fourth studio album, Dark Future Rising,[4] was released. Airborn toured extensively for two years to promote the album, often as support for Iron Savior.

In 2016, the band released the CD+DVD Dinosaurs - 20 Years Live, recorded live in the band's home town, Turin.
