There are at least three bands named Ligeia:
1. A metalcore band from Massachusetts, USA
2. A female fronted traditional metal band from Ulm, Germany.
3. A death metal band from the USA (Kansas City, Missouri), formerly called Nepenthe, and now split-up.
1) The Massachusetts Ligeia was formed in late 2003 by Keith Holuk (vocals), (former member) Phil Fonseca (drums) and Ryan Ober (guitar). With the addition of bassist (former member) Matthew Bennett, and guitar player Chris Keane in late 2004 / early 2005 completed this young band lineup and perfected their already devastating sound.
