REST formed in 2014, by wish of the guitar player Alessandro Coos (already active with the post-blackmetal band ASHES OF NOWHERE) to start a crust/blackmetal project with the idea of merging together the semplicity of crust music and the dark side of black metal.
Joined by Mattia Revelant on drums, Efis Canu (already singer of the hardcore band INIRA) as vocalist and Marco Zuccolo (already active with the post-hardcore band WHANE) as bass player, the guys recorded in August 2015 their first tracks at Inferi Studio, run by the same Efis Canu. Fierce, through a classic Swedish Boss HM2 Sound, the band’s first EP is pure violence and sweat! The album was completed around the beginning of 2016 and displays an amazing artwork by the indie photographer Martin De Martin.
If to present in a few words this band and its EP, the band says: “REST‘s self-titled debut EP is a punch in the stomach for all All Pigs Must Die and The Secret‘s lovers! No compromise crust blackened hardcore for this band hailing from Udine, Italy! A sick journey in conspiracy and suffering,”
All pre-orders for this November release started on August the 7th through Third I Rex bandcamp page!
