Debris // Essence
Benthos is an experimental progressive metal band from Milan, Italy. Since 2018, the band have been developing a growing fanbase due to their unique songwriting style.
By combining ethereal atmospheric song structures with geometric heavy riffs, the result is a unique universe of sounds which you must hear to believe. After scoring a support gig opening for The Contortionist at Circolo Svolta in Milan, the band was tapped by producer & engineer Matteo Magni (Anewrage, Deep As Ocean). Shortly thereafter in the Winter of 2019, the band entered Magnitude Recording Studio to begin tracking their debut album. Fortunately, the album which would be titled "II" was finished before the pandemic hit Europe and the Italian government locked down. Despite the band being in quarantine, they were able to reach out to a select few record companies and quickly gained the attention of Eclipse Records. After a few Zoom meetings the band signed an exclusive worldwide deal with the American record label.
