Latest Bandcamp Release

Band Biographies: ABSTRACTED


ABSTRACTED was formed in the band's hometown of Sao Paolo, Brazil in 2014. The group was initially birthed from the ashes of Nyth, a previous band that Rosano Matiussi (vocals/guitars) and Guilherme Nolasco (guitars) had been involved with. After their first live performance – rounded out by drummer Alexandre Dantas and then-bassist Allen Lordaro – the new group entered the studio to record an album showcasing a sound that was birthed by a love for bands that balanced metallic intensity with a propensity to stretch the progressive boundaries of the genre.

ABSTRACTED took their name from a song by Swedish melodic death metal greats Scar Symmetry. Influences from other European acts such as Necrophagist and Gojira, American bands such as The Faceless and Between The Buried And Me, and genre giants such as Death and Coroner all formed the basis for the sound that the band explored on their thrilling 2015 debut EP, “Ophidian.” The recording saw new bassist Riverton Vivela enter the picture and featured guest appearances from Allegaeon guitarists Michael Stancel and Greg Burgess. The group continued to build their name in the years that followed while balancing scholastic pursuits with live appearances on festivals throughout their native country.

ABSTRACTED began recording their debut full-length, “Atma Conflux,” in 2018, and continued writing, crafting, and producing the record throughout 2019 and 2020. The new album sees the group – which recently welcomed keyboardist Carol Claro – integrating synthesizers and orchestral keyboards into their already-expansive sound. With their lineup now fully solidified, a new album ready and live performances imminent soon, ABSTRACTED is poised to unleash their sound to the masses in 2021. The first taste of the scintillating sounds to be found on “Atma Conflux” was revealed earlier this year with the music video for “Decree of Sunlight” (featuring guest vocals by Mike Semesky (Raunchy, Interloper), which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/msJX0ZQzeiM.
