PRESS RELEASE 9TH DECEMBER 2013
MARTIRIA, featuring Vinny Appice on drums,
release "R-evolution" on
Rocksector Records on 10th February 2014
Italy's Martiria are to release a brand new album "R-evolution" on
Rocksector Records, on 10th February 2014. The band includes
former-Black Sabbath, Dio, and Heaven and Hell drummer Vinny Appice.
The release celebrates the 10th anniversary of Martiria's first album
release "The Eternal Soul" in 2004.
Based in Rome, Martiria was originally formed in 1987, focusing mainly
on doom metal. After several years delay whilst the members pursued
alternative projects, the band re-grouped in 2002, released the debut
album in 2004 and a further 4 albums up to and including 2012's "Roma
S.P.Q.R." A small number of line-up changes occurred through these
years - former members include Rick Anderson (Warlord) - culminating
in the 2013 line-up which has recorded the new release....
Andy Menario (guitar and keyboards), Flavio Cosma (vocals), Derek
Maniscalco (bass), Vinny Appice (drums), Marco R. Capelli (lyrics).
Music written by Andy Menario. Lyrics written by Marco R. Capelli.
Mixed and mastered at Antfarm Studio (Denmark), by producer Tue Madsen
(The Haunted, Mnemic, Hatesphere, Ektomorf). Drums recorded at Freedom
Studio (USA) by Thomas Le Blanc.
The resulting style of "R-evolution" is a combination of the band's
original doom metal vision including references to the sounds of
Candlemass and Black Sabbath,
mixed with the
uplifting influences of classic and power metal.
There's drama and poerty in the superb vocals and lyrics, whilst the
soundscape is epic and moving. Finally, of course the drumming of
Vinny Appice adds a further dimension of undeniable quality.
The relationship with Vinny Appice was forged when in 2006 both Andy
Menario and Marco R. Capelli worked with the drummer on the Power
Project, which also featured Carl Sentance (ex-Krokus), Carlos Cavazo
(ex-Quiet Riot), and Jeff Pilson (ex-Dokken).
"R-evolution" will be released physically into UK and Europe, and
digitally worldwide, on 10th February 2014. A pre-order package will
be available from 10th January.

album, complete with the entire song for the first single "Revolution"
