Martiria / Press

“This is a great release which stands up in its own right and if a high profile drummer brings it to the attention of a larger audience then it truly deserves that recognition.”

“This is a very strong album: while the focus inevitably falls on Appice, the musicianship stands up on its own merit and is complemented by the muscular material. (...)Recommended listening: ‘Salem’”

“Overall it’s a very very tight album. Excellent musicianship and the whilst the focus I am sure will be on Vinny Appice in the short term, the great lyrics from Capelli and Cosma’s voice really set this out from the crowd.”

“(...)The firmer approach of the last album has been set forth, due to which the songs sound more alive and more spontaneous. Also the album is darker and at the same time more melancholic in general than the predecessors.(...)”

“(...)Lodevolissima operazione della My Graveyard Productions, che marchia a fuoco la ristampa del primo album dei Martiria, “The Eternal Soul”, uscito originariamente per la Hellion Records nel 2004. In attesa del ritorno discografico del combo romano (con un nuovo album che si preannuncia l’ennesima bomba e che sembra vedrà dietro le pelli Mr. Vinnie Appice di sabbathiana memoria)(...)”

“MARTIRIA - The eternal soul + Live at Play It Loud III 2 CD DIGIPAK The first Martiria album totally remastered plus the complete show at PIL Festival in 2009 with Rick Anderson on vocals! Release date 22 April 2013 Only 500 copies available!”

“Now it's official: Vinny Appice will record all drum parts for our next album, recording sessions are going to start next February (yes, we're already back at work). Andy, Derek and Marco are proud to welcome one of the greatest drummer that ever played on the international rock-metal scene, a real war-machine: VINNY APPICE, the man who was on stage with Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven & Hell, founder member of Kill Devil Hill. We just want to say to Vinny: "Thank you!" for playing with us. We're sure that his presence will give to our next work the power and the strength we were looking for! ... more news coming soon, stay tuned!”

“After the release of our last CD, ROMA S.P.Q.R., and several live shows that brought us great reviews and great satisfaction, Martiria will now change targets and strategy, heading straight towards international music scene. Hence the choice to find a singer with different characteristics. Andy, Derek and Marco, deeply thank Freddy, great friend and excellent and very professional singer for the contribution given to the band during this year 2012 and wish him great success for his future activities. Also, they want to say "thank you" to Umberto Spiniello, superlative drummer that, due to his work commitments, couldn't follow the band in last months activities.”

"i Martiria fanno vibrare le corde della Storia oltre quelle dei propri strumenti, rapiscono l'ascoltatore in una narrazione fuori dal tempo e dallo spazio, e confermano ancora una volta tutto il bene che si dice in giro di loro." (www.stereoinvaders.com)

"I Martiria sono inequivocabilmente da annoverare tra i grandi dell’heavy metal … è già da un po’ che lo sostengo e oggi lo ribadisco per l’ennesima volta con immutata convinzione. " (/www.metal.it)

" ...una delle migliori prove di una delle formazioni più originali, epiche e maestose in circolazione!" (metalhead.it)

“Free video preview from the new CD: CALLISTUS WAKE (From the album ROMA S.P.Q.R). ”

“ROMA S.P.Q.R. available from the 22nd of September 2012 The history of mighty Rome, turned into an epic Rock Opera! ”

“In order to move in the direction of a more intense LIVE activity (made difficult by the physical distance between the singer and the rest of the members), Rick Anderson and Andy take the very suffered decision to split their ways after ten long years together. We want to want to thank sincerely Rick Anderson for the contribution he gave in developing the Martiria Project. His presence has been fundamental for the success of the band, and his friendship is invaluable for us, since he is both a great man and a brother for us. Therefore, we hug our singer wishing him the best for his future and hoping that our paths will cross again very soon. God bless you, Rick. It's a see-you-soon, not a farewell. ”
