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.
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.
The band’s broadened approach to songwriting was already audible in the 2010 self-released Ep “Molochian”, which marked a stylistical step forward towards more progressive and atmospheric compositions.
The band then entered the studio to work on their new album in the summer of 2011. It was recorded in roughly 9 days at Regrexion Studios with Michele Trasforini and then was mixed and mastered at Studio73 in Ravenna with producer Riccardo “Paso” Pasini (known for working with Ephel Duath, The Secret, Extrema, At the Soundawn) in November.
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 , includine dates with Norway’s Virus. and are planning to tour extensively in 2013 to promote the record.
