The Italian experimentalists of NERO DI MARTE have partnered up with Sick Drummer Magazine for the premiere of a brand new drum play-through for the track ‘La Fuga’! The track is taken from the band’s latest album ‘Immoto’, which was released on January 24, 2020
The band comment on the video: “We’re proud to present the first of two drum playthroughs dedicated to our latest album Immoto. We’re playing some shows with limited capacity in these next few months and we hope this content can partially satisfy the interest of those who cannot come to see us. A few words from our drummer Giulio: “Immoto is a moving picture, the testimony of my inwardness and musical search at its peak in the moment it was recorded. La Fuga represents a triumph of beats that are both soft and unbridled, a dynamic climax spread out as an entire song.”
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.
