CD Review: Nero Di Marte(Self Titled)_Released March 18, 2013(Prosthetic Records)

Prosthetic Records is proud to announce the signing of NERO DI MARTE.
Founded in Bologna, Italy in 2007, experimental metallers Nero di Marte debut on Prosthetic Records with their long awaited self-titled release, a unique and experimental approach to structure, sound and atmosphere.  Expect a release date in March 2013.
Vocalist / guitarist Sean Worrell commented “We are absolutely thrilled and honored to be working with Prosthetic Records, a label which has had and still has some of the most amazing bands out there in its roster. We are very thankful to them and can't wait for you all to hear our album, which release is long overdue. We will hopefully see you on the road during 2013!”
Duncan of Prosthetic Records Europe added, “It’s a rarity to discover such an exciting and forward-thinking new band that equally balances texture, heaviness, intelligence and perfect musicianship as Nero Di Marte does with ease.  We’re very excited for you to hear the upcoming new album shortly….”
Nero di Marte is the Italian name of a pigment, an iron oxide that produces a deep, dark, intense black that when in contact with other colors can permanently coat or noticeably transform them.

This is indeed an album of importance to anyone that is like me that enjoys Heavy Metal music, this is one worth picking up for sure.
There is such an incredible amount of  sound that accompanies the vocals -the voice being used as another instrument of course.
The drumming alone makes me wonder if he has 4 arms as they are very busy indeed, wow!!
Band Bio:
Formerly known under the name Murder Therapy, the band signed to Dutch label Deity Down Records to release their debut “Symmetry of Delirium” in 2009, which showed a very personal mix of modern death metal, and have played numerous shows and festivals around Italy and Europe including performances with major acts such as Cynic, Decapitated, The Ocean, Intronaut, Ulcerate, Svart Crown, Red Fang, Jucifer, The Secret and at the prestigious Neurotic Deathfest in Tilburg (NL) with Carcass, Immolation, Six Feet Under, Napalm Death, Bolt Thrower, Origin among many others.
During the summer of 2012 the band decided to change its name to Nero di Marte, the name the album was originally given; they now have a few shows in Italy to finish up the year , including dates with Norway’s Virus. and are planning to tour extensively in 2013 to promote the record.
This is not an album that at all plays like some albums where you can almost predict what tempo of song they are going to play or whether that song is going to be at the same playing speed throughout-this is unpredictable music.

Thank you for reading this
