Season of Mist previously announced the signing of NERO DI MARTE. The band will release their brand new album in 2020 via Season of Mist.
Vocalist Sean Worrell comments on the signing: “I can’t think of a much better home for our music than Season of Mist. They’ve been releasing quality bands of all genres for decades including favorites like Deathspell Omega, Cynic, Virus, The Dillinger Escape Plan and, of course, our good friends in Gorguts – among countless others!”

Since 2012, NERO DI MARTE have been devoted towards creating experimental yet heavy music contaminated by prog, death metal, psychedelia and contemporary classical music. The dissolution of these different influences creates a space in which dissonance, melody, claustrophobic and dreamlike atmospheres become instinctively juxtaposed.
Shortly after releasing their self-titled debut album in 2013, the Italian band was asked by Luc Lemay to tour North America with legendary death metal bands GORGUTS and ORIGIN. Following the success of the tour, the band entered the studio in 2014 to record their second album “Derivae” later that year.
Both albums received critical acclaim and the band dedicated the following years to performing live, culminating in a European tour with GORGUTS, PSYCROPTIC and DYSRHYTHMIA in 2016 and performances in festivals such as Royal Metal Fest, Stonehenge Fest, Metalorgie Fest, Krakatoa Fest and Solo Macello Fest.
With drummer Marco Bolognini leaving in late 2016, the band recruited drummer/octopus Giulio Galati (HIDEOUS DIVINITY) in early 2017 to continue composing their third album. After 5 long years of work and transformations, the band finally completed writing and recording their third album in early 2019 – once again at Studio73 (Ephel Duath, The Secret, Blindead) in Ravenna with sound engineer Riccardo Pasini.
