Eyes Set to Kill is an American metalcore band from Tempe, Arizona. Sisters Alexia and Anissa Rodriguez, along with former vocalist Lindsey Vogt started the band in 2003. Lindsey Vogt departed the band in mid-2007 due to issues with management. Lindsey would go on to form a solo project known as "The Taro Sound", and eventually formed the band "The Attraction." After Lindsey's departure, Alexia assumed her position as lead vocalist as well as guitarist.

The World Outside received widespread critical acclaim and the group was featured on the cover of USA Today, as one of Alternative Press Magazine's "100 Bands You Need To Know", and hosted an episode of MTV's Headbangers Ball. Broken Frames was ranked fifth on the list of "Locals Only: The Best Albums and EPs in 2010".

The band's name was derived from a line out of a poem Alexia wrote in high school. Eyes Set to Kill began in 2003 as a three-piece band from Tempe, Arizona. Alexia Rodriguez (lead guitar, vocals), Anissa Rodriguez (bass guitar), and Lindsey Vogt (lead vocals), searched the local area for musicians to join their band. Despite sharing the stage with several signed and unsigned artists, including Chiodos, Blessthefall, Goodbye Tomorrow, My American Heart, and Greeley Estates, the initial combination they found was only temporary, and over the next several months, the band continued to undergo changes in their musical lineup. In early 2006, three men joined the line-up of Eyes Set to Kill, those men being Alex Torres (guitar), Brandon Anderson (vocals), and Brett Litzler (drums). The band worked for Eyes Set to Kill to be active after losing half of their members, and went on to record an EP in 2006 with Arizona's Larry Elyea and his studio, Minds Eye Digital.

Eyes Set to Kill's original EP featuring guitarist Alex Torres and original vocalist, Lindsey Vogt. The album featured ten songs (six of which were re-recorded for the full length album, Reach), the EP sold 11,000 units, and was recorded locally at Mind's Eye Digital Recording Studios in Glendale, AZ with Larry Elyea. They toured on the Zippo Hot Tour opening for Papa Roach and Co-Headliners Hed PE

Eyes Set to Kill's debut full length album, Reach, was released February 19, 2008. The first single from the album was "Reach", with their following single as "Darling". Reach hit #29 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and #77 on Billboardís Independent Music charts in 2008 selling 1900 copies in its first week.

Eyes Set to Kill's second album, The World Outside, was released June 2, 2009. Alexia stated that this new album is "a lot darker." On April 23, 2009, they posted the song "Heights" on their Myspace page. Craig Mabbitt was a guest vocalist on the song "Deadly Weapons". The World Outside sold 2,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The World Outside peaked at #9 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and #26 on the Independent Albums chart On July 7, 2009, it was announced that lead singer Alexia will be recording an acoustic EP after being inspired to do so following performing the song "Come Home." Recording began on July 8, 2009. Also the acoustic EP was stated to be Limited Edition and only available at their shows. On March 25, 2010 at the Icon in Pocatello, Idaho they announced that they had finished recording their third album, but did not announce a release date. However, on March 26, 2010, at Kilby Court in Salt Lake City, Utah, (Jesse Perez was there and heard the announcement) they announced that the new album would be released in June 2010.

Their third studio album, called Broken Frames, was released on June 8, 2010. The first single from the album is called "All You Ever Knew", and was released on April 1, 2010 on revolvermag.com and on their MySpace page. Brandon Anderson had resigned from the band, and "quit for a girl, but it wasn't just that. He really damaged his vocal chords and he can't scream anymore," band member Caleb says. Frontwoman Alexia said of the album, "I have a lot of memories that I want to forget about. So I wanted to base the theme of the song on that feeling. I have had a friend pass away; I have broken hearts; I have lost faith at times; and I have made mistakes that I canít even count anymore. So all of the memories of these things inspired me to write about them on this album. We really wanted this first song to be the heaviest and the most evolved sounding track compared to the tracks on The World Outside. 'Broken Frames' is the first song we finished for this record and the first song we tried out this theme on. So I guess you could call this a concept album about everything I want to forget." The song "Ryan" is about Alexia's guitar teacher, who taught her almost everything she knows. She says "he was always a happy person, but not in the inside I guess." One day she went in for lessons, he wasn't there and she later found out he had shot himself in the chest. So she really just wanted to write a song about him. Anissa wrote the piano part in the song. It was stated on Eyes Set To Kill's Twitter that they will be playing 2 brand new songs at The Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA March 20, 2011 They played with Rosalynn, Black Veil Brides, Confide, and From First to Last. One of the new songs that debuted is called "Where You Wanna Be." On March 2, 2011 it was announced that Eyes Set To Kill would be playing the Vans Warped Tour 2011.

On October 12, 2010, Alexia "Lexia" Rodriguez released her debut solo album called "Underground Sounds." The album includes a few of ESTK's songs such as "Come Home," with the debut single's acoustic version of "Reach" and a cover of Radiohead's "Climbing Up the Walls." On October 26, 2010, "Let Me In" was released as Lexia's first single with a video under her first solo album "Lexia: Underground Sounds." The song is featured as a bonus track from their third studio album, Broken Frames. On January 27, 2011, in a Biographiespot written by Alexia Rodriguez, she reveals the departure of Greg Kerwin. Replacing Greg on guitar for their Alaska tour is David Molina.

The band will be on the Horror Nights Tour with Aiden, Get Scared, Vampires Everywhere, and Dr. Acula from May 13-June 23. Eyes Set to Kill entered the studio in Ocala, FL with producer Andrew Wade to record a new album on April 27. It was stated on May 11 that the new LP was complete.

They will release White Lotus through a joint venture between their own label Forsee Records and Maphia Entertainment on August 9. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: 5.0 out of 5 stars Really great female fronted metal/hardcore band, August 22, 2011 By Jake W. Summers - See all my reviews (REAL NAME) This review is from: Reach (Audio CD) Alexia brings some great riffs while Anissa backs them with a solid bass line. Alexia provides an interesting twist to the metal backing with breathy, heartfelt vocals, reminiscent of Haley Williams, but with more power (IMO). I can feel the passion through her words when she sings. For what I feel is their true debut, this is a solid album. Hopefully we'll hear plenty more as they continue to grow

Great lead singer, great guitars, excellent writing, and excellent execution. Except there is one thing that totally ruins this album and makes it nearly trashcanworthy. Brandon. Shut him up. Give him a throat lozenge and put him on a guitar or someplace away from a microphone. I can't stand his screaming any more. Get rid of his screaming voice, and this band will rise to the top.

In addition, Alexia's unique songwriting talent really presents itself with the intellectually meaningful lyrical attributes brought about in the songs.

You're Not There Yet., September 19, 2008 By Luke Rounda "ThreeStarSmash.com" (Lawrence, KS) - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Reach (Audio CD) While they should be commended for their initiative, the ladies and gentlemen of Eyes Set to Kill produce music that is flat as a board and easy to nail down into one overpopulated, facepalm-worthy genre. Yeah, you already know which one. "Melodic" screamo/hardcore. Like Lacuna Coil, the female vocals are nice, but ruined by their surroundings. Changes of pace are much needed in this music. Or any kind of music, for that matter. Unfortunately, Alexia Rodriguez's breathy, dramatic vocalizations are nothing new to anyone who's heard a Paramore song. Paramore are not particularly unique, either, but at least something like "Misery Business" deploys the "soft, melodic feel of female vocals" on legitimate earworms. As for the quasi-masculine yelp screaming and "Ohio Is For Lovers" cookie monster howls... well, I'm running out of original nasty things to say. Here goes anyway. You all sound like you're two years old and throwing a temper tantrum somewhere off in the distance while the grown-ups are trying to enjoy their music. Parents of hardcore kids with musical tendencies: just give me a damn break already. Please. Be a parent. Shut your kids up. Beat them black and blue if you have to. They might even like it in some cases. Eyes Set to Kill are at their best when they embrace melody and pop structure. "Where We Started" is perhaps the most melodic, heavy tune on-board here, beginning with a lilting piano riff which is soon joined by some ham-fisted grunge guitar. The token ballad, "Give You My All," reveals that sans vitriol and loud guitars, their sound is more akin to an unreleased collaboration between Jewel and Avril Lavigne: heart-on-the-sleeve, crying-in-the-dark, but with just a touch or lip-curl of "bitch" to keep their edge. Or maybe it's more like Alanis? "Listen to all of this glass shatter // It pierced my ears and made them bleed." To be fair, balladry like this tends to come off quite a sight better when the woman singing it is actually singing in a register which comes natural. At least they can lord (lady?) that over all the other ladyjeans-wearing guyliners they tour with. Heaviness and volume married to delicacy can work. It can work splendidly. Eyes Set to Kill just don't bring anything fresh to the table. Fans of female fronted bands in the vein of Paramore or Evanescence might find something to enjoy here, but look elsewhere for innovation, and do your ears and sanity a favor: if you hate cookie-cutter wrist-cutting emo songwriting, treat this like Chernobyl. Stay away!
