NERO DI MARTE are now unveiling the second brand new track taken from their forthcoming new masterpiece, ‘Immoto’. The album is scheduled for release on January 24th, 2020.
NERO DI MARTE comment:
“The sounds and themes of “L’Arca” can in some ways be seen as a continuation of our previous album “Derivae”, while delivering many new musical and vocal ideas we’ve never explored before. We can hear, in retrospect, how much we were influenced by sci-fi atmospheres for certain parts of the song. A nebulous, percussive intro builds into a spiraling crescendo of tension which ultimately ends in a dramatic climax: the Ark, along with everything we treasure, is finally free to wander off in space and time.”
Since 2012, NERO DI MARTE have been devoted towards creating experimental, yet heavy music contaminated by prog, death metal, psychedelia and contemporary classical music. The dissolution of these different influences creates a space in which dissonance, melody, claustrophobic and dreamlike atmospheres become instinctively juxtaposed.
After forming in 2012 and shortly after releasing their self-titled debut album 2013, NERO DI MARTE was asked by the mighty Luc Lemay of GORGUTS to tour North America with the legendary death metal band. Following the success of the tour, the band entered the studio in 2014 to record their second album “Derivae”, released later that year.
Both albums received critical acclaim, and the band dedicated the following years to performing live, culminating in a European tour with GORGUTS and PSYCROPTIC in 2016 and performances in festivals such as Royal Metal Fest (DK), Stonehenge Fest (NL), Metalorgie Fest (FR), Krakatoa Fest (IT) and Solo Macello Fest (IT).
With drummer Marco Bolognini leaving in late 2016, the band recruited drummer Giulio Galati (HIDEOUS DIVINITY) in early 2017 to continue composing their third album. After 5 long years of work and transformations, the band finally completed writing and recording their upcoming album ‘Immoto’ once again at Studio73 (IT) with the help of sound engineer Riccardo Pasini.
Though not a “concept album”, as each song goes into a very specific and unique direction both musically and lyrically, there is an overall underlying theme in ‘Immoto’: creating a motionless, transformative space within ourselves from which creativity, actions and relationships can manifest in a more meaningful way.
