After a couple of self-produced works and a first album (“Chaotic Age”) Embryo found its sound and went to Fear Studio to record its second cd “No God Slave” (2010) with producer Simone Mularoni. Salvatore Perrone directed 2 videos for the tracks “No God Slave” and “Flatterer Of Indifference”. This album has also received very good reviews (8/10 metallus.it, 10/10 truecultheavymetal.com, 6/7 metalnews.de….) and led the band to play new gigs in Switzerland, Germany and Italy and be part of Kung Fu Factory’s Supremacy MMA videogame soundtrack with 2 songs. After “No God Slave” the guitar player Eugenio had the honor to become Peavey endorser.
In 2014 Embryo recorded a promo at Atomic Stuff Studio with Oscar Burato and signed a promotional deal with Atomic Stuff Promotion. In May, 2014, the band recorded the new cd at Domination Studio with Simone Mularoni. Fleshgod Apocalypse’s drummer Francesco Paoli played all the drums.

In October Embryo signed a deal with logic(il)logic Records for the release of the new, self-titled, full-length album and the reissue of “No God Slave” with some bonus tracks. In December they made a little tour in Eastern Europe.

EMBRYO –

The crew is diving in the depths of the sea, taken away by the mighty streams, lost and drown in madness where they can never escape. An ominous land at the border of reality. The story has been going on for centuries and shall never be forgotten.

Skaphos is the meeting of four experienced musicians who have already played in different bands. Formed in 2018, their first full length « Bathyscaphe » comes out in 2020, followed by « Thooï » in 2022. Signed with The Flaming Arts Agency, Skaphos tours in Europe with bands like MARDUK, BELPHEGOR, I AM MORBID, HATE, VADER…

Since the resumption of concerts after the Covid restrictions, the band played in sixteen countries in a year.

The exploration continues in the deepest trenches of the ocean.
