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.
