Markradonn / Bio

Markradonn:
Experimental brass Death Metal
from Florida

Markradonn is a very different death metal band than what you may be used to. Drawing influences from multiple sources, such as Black Metal, Soundtrack Composers, Aboriginal music, and classic Florida Death Metal, Markradonn creates an epic and powerful sound that “if they don’t leave an imprint in your memory, they will certainly leave some blood in your eardrums.”-XRP Radio, UK

In addition to using the conventional “metal” instrumentation, Markradonn incorporates a full time brass section and a full time timpani player to add another dimension to the music. The band feels that digital samples sound fake and sterile, so they decided to use real instruments to create a bigger, more “soundtrack” type of sound to the music. The addition of hand percussion, natural drums, and aboriginal instruments also add a “ritualistic” tone to the music. However, the band retains the basic elements of Death Metal, and you can expect Markradonn to be uncompromising and unrelenting while staying true to their Extreme Metal Roots.

Markradonn is scheduled to release their second EP, called “The Serpentine Deception”, which will feature a greater exploration of brass in extreme metal and showcasing their new re-vamped 5 piece brass section. Expect to hear more experimentation with hand percussion and aboriginal instruments on the instrumental title track…

The band is currently in production of CEREMONIAL ABNEGATION, a 4 part, 25+ song epic about a man who has completely renounced his life and all of his beliefs in a ceremony that results in the end of his life, and the entire process of his soul/essence returning to the place of the first creation. The first part begins with the protagonist spiraling into the depths of self-hating madness, and he soon begins to become consumed by his own hatred and rage that eventually leads him to the ritualistic end to his life. The last three songs of the first part deal with the final ten seconds of his life and his last breath of air before the essence of his life force leaves his body, describing his last thoughts, emotions, and revelations. The tone is resentful, contemptuous, painful, and evolves into a deep spiritual awareness, which leads in to the second album…
