Concrete are a thrash metal band formed in 2009.The roots of this name derives from the ambitious goal to create a massive musical style without compromises: hard rythms like concrete. Two friends Daniele Orlandi (bass) and Luca Nazzari (drums),after playing together in various heavy metal bands (Eversion , Dark cold demons blood) ,
decided to set up a new project to play their favorite kind of music: Thrash Metal.
This project should have been able to mix the traditional old-school metal sounds of the ’80s with the sound of the modern productions : it was the year 2009 and Concrete born.
Within a short time Manuele Ruggiero became part of the band on the rhythm guitar /vocals and also his friend, Massimo Ercoli (ex Prophecy , Pause) on the lead guitar.
The training was soon back in the rehearsal room to start playing and get better acquainted.
Since from the beginning , a strong sound influenced by the german scene(Sodom,Destruction..) appears , especially characterized by the dirty voice of Manuele. The band started a series of live shows coated in different periods of 2010 and 2012, they began producing own songs . In June 2012 the band recorded his first selfmade Ep ‘Madness’ , subsequently assisted in the process of mixing and mastering by Fabio "Trai" Intraina , a Massimo’s friend. In may 2013 Matteo Farina replace Manuele on the vocals but Manuele continue to play rythm guitar parts. The band choose Matteo for his screamy style of voice to take approach with the modern productions , without forgetting the old-school thrash metal rules.
Now the band is working on new songs to make a full-length and continue to promote his first EP ‘Madness’.
