Prog metal band Noveria was formed in 2014 when guitarist Francesco Mattei returned to Italy after four years in pilgrimage for metal in Finland.
Our goal is to create a complete headbanging experience with a melodic twist through our music, combining massive guitar riffs with atmospheric keyboards on top along with techincally challenging solos. Our main sources of inspiration come from genres like Symphonic, Industrial and Death Metal.
While our first release Risen (Scarlet Records, 2014) told the stories of people trying to survive in a world that seems to put all odds against you, our new album, Forsaken (to be released on Scarlet Records on the 28th of October), focuses on the emotional struggle of a single person facing a life-threatening illness, taking things to a much more personal level. Forsaken is a concept album written around the theory of five stages of death (the Kubler model): Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
Risen had a warm welcome from critics and metal fans alike and was chosen Best Metal Newcomer of the year 2014 by Metalunderground.com.
The original lineup saw Emanuele Casali (DGM, Astra) on keyboards. Since 2016 Emanuele has moved on to work on his other numerous projects and now Julien Spreutels (Epysode, Ethernity) has taken his place in the band. Julien proved a great resource and inspiration for the band and with his collaboration the new album soon started taking shape!
In August 2016 we returned to Domination Studio in San Marino to record our second album. Thanks to the expertise of Simone Mularoni in curating both mix and master, we feel that the sound of Noveria on Forsaken is more solid than ever.
While Risen brought us to make a minitour in the north of Italy in addition to a few sold out gigs in and nearby Rome, we have bigger plans for the future! Stay tuned to see where the road takes us next!
