Motorguts was conceived by former Angra/Shaman bass player Luis Mariutti and his friend with whom he played years ago in Firebox, guitarist Marcelo Araújo.
The band came from the desire to make good music, with no commitment and free of labels.
Investing in the creativity of drummer Rafael Rosa, they invited him to join the band and thus accelerate the process of creation.
With some songs previously composed and upcoming new material, the musicians decided to promote a contest on the internet to choose the singer.
The idea was to have access to talented, that they probably would not find through a "traditional selection."
With this contest, they received materials from excellent musicians all over the world , but the one that most surprised them and had identification with the band was vocalist Fabio Colombini.
Beyond his vocal power, he added a lot musically speaking, for being a great instrumentalist and lyricist.
Produced by keyboardist Fabio Ribeiro and Ale Souza the band released their first official studio recording, the singles “Mercy” and “Motorguts”.
This material preceded the release of their debut album SEVEN.
SEVEN was released on December 21th 2012, supposedly the day of the end of the world.
