Biography

Formed back in 2000, PATHOSRAY is one of the best kept secrets of the Italian metal scene. Originally going by the name N.D.E, the band, formed by drummer Ivan Moni Bidin, guitarist Luca Luison and vocalist Marco Sandron, established their own sound as a mixture of heavy metal, progressive metal and 70’s style symphonic prog-rock.

In 2001 the band recorded its first demo, “Strange Kind Of Energies” - released in 2002 under the new band name PATHOSRAY, which they promoted heavily through lots of concerts in their home country over the next few years.

By 2006 the band had established their line-up with bass player Fabio D’Amore and keyboardist Gianpaolo Rinaldi, and it was time for another demo - this time the very impressive “Deathless Crescendo”, which was well-received by the Italian media and of course gained the band more concerts around Italy.

In the fall of 2006 they started to record their first full-length album, simply titled “Pathosray”. The album was recorded at Angel’s Wings studio by Nico Odorico and Mattia Sartori.

Once the album was completed, the band (now with new guitarist Alessio Velliscig) sent the disc to Danish based Intromental Management (by recommendation by their good friends in the band Raintime, who are also signed to Intromental), and once the awesome music on the album reached Denmark, a deal was soon in place.

Through Intromental Management a record deal was immediately made with American record label Sensory Records (home of such great acts as Spiral Architect, Circus Maximus, Zero Hour and Wuthering Heights), who absolutely loved what they heard.

    "sunless skies" is the best power metal related album i've heard for some time. it's intense, well played and imaginative. this isn't something you'll hear a few times and then put it away; it's the type of music you'll always come back to. great songs, still can't decide which one's best.

    second album is FAR better than the debut in my opinion...Great emotions and marco sandron sounds even better than on the selftitled album.

    @Faethin: You're not the only one. I dig Sunless Skies, but it pales in comparison to their debut album.

    I seem to be about the only guy that thought Sunless Skies was mediocre at best compared to their debut album

    Best kept secret indeed!! Some of the best music I've heard this year, and I'm saying that just after my first listen to Sunless Skies!
