TerminUs is the first Deimos' release and it's totally self-produced. All band members worked hard on all aspects of their five-tracks EP, to have a detailed and refined product. The result is a very incisive style in which all band members poured their influences: from '80s metal, to power, to progressive; thus Deimos trademark was born.
The recording process began in 2011, but the writing process started at the end of 2009, when Federico Lanterna, guitar player, composed 4 out of 5 tracks for the EP, finally putting into action the band's common goal: write Deimos' own original music.
Back in 2009 the band still was a Gamma Ray tribute, the first and only one in Italy, with gigs and fan-base all over the north of Italy.
TerminUs was self recorded and produced by Santo Clemenzi, bass player, and the rest of the band. The sound of the EP and the overall outcome exceeded the band's expectations. All 5 tracks have been mixed by Santo Clemenzi in his home studio, using free softwares for the most part: believing in Open Source and free software, TerminUs is living proof that professional and high quality results are totally possible for self-produced and independent projects.
The album features great musicians as guests: Chris Caffery (Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Savatage) who played a killer guitar solo on "Gates Of Babylon"; Raffo Albanese (From The Depth, 5th Element, E.X.S.) as lead singer on "Stonetears"; Antonio Pecere (Betoken, Rapid, Fire) as lead singer on all the other tracks; Paola Gemma (Lisa meets Jack, Beggars Farm) lead vocals on "Locked Heart" in a dramatic duet with Antonio.
Great enthusiasm awaits TerminUs, expectations growing thanks to the release of "Stonetears" and "Locked Heart" as first singles: available for online free download or streaming on the most important online music distribution channels and social networks.The band is working hard every day to promote its first EP, expand its fan base and audience worldwide.
As Deimos believe in music above music business they also plan to release TerminUs for free, streaming online, for a long time.
The band is currently working on recording and producing new songs for their next full lenght album. TerminUs is just the beginning!
