From the Embrace is a burning planet thrown out of orbit onto a collision course with heaven itself. Rising from the remnants of the former Death Metal capital of the world, Tampa, Florida, FTE plays a highly technical form of Progressive Death Metal that besets the listener and never relinquishes the nefarious assault. The band was formed in 2007 by Devin Garcia and J.T. Hosack. With the addition of frontman Nick Marrero’s harsh vocals in early 2009, FTE’s sound took on a more aggressive texture and the band began writing new material. Later that same year, FTE recorded their first EP, produced by Brian Elliot, at Mana Studios; the recording features a guest appearance by The Absence’s Patrick Pintavalle on the track Disease of Ignorance. Not only has the band shared the stage with the likes of Kindom Of Sorrow (Relapse), Deicide (Century Media), and The Absence, and Six Feet Under (Metal Blade), they completed a Florida run with Rose Funeral (Metal Blade) in February 2010, but also, their own East Coast headlining tour in June through August of 2010.
Following the release of their second EP entitled "The Grind", From the Embrace embarked on a Winter tour in December of 2010 running into the new year of 2011, which took the band through the South and Midwest of the United States, and a Summer tour in July of 2011 up the East Coast and back down through the Mid-east.
Along the way the band has picked up endorsements from Madison Amps, Guitar-Cable.com, B Stick Of Denmark, TRX Cymbals, Maxline Music Cases and dB Drum Shoes. They are currently writing for a Debut Full-Length Record and planning a short winter tour for the end of the 2011 year.
