If we mix heavy riffs and melancholic arpeggios, distorted bass, dark and electronic atmospheres, airy openings and catchy vocal melodies, here we get the music, not easy to label, proposed by Madwork.
Madwork are an Italian electronic-metal band formed by:
Beppe Jago Careddu: vocals
Mirco Trigger Maggiora: bass
Nicolò Greppi: guitars
Luca Bincoletto: keyboards, samples and loops
Fabio Nora: drums
The band comes to life in 1999 with the aim of proposing their own music, mixing the musical tastes of all components of the group. After few demos related to prog-metal genre, Madwork begin a process of experimentation for new musical contaminations and solutions that leads to detachment from the prog-metal sound, producing in 2003 a demo, "Leaving All Behind", which fully represents the new road taken.
The demo gets the desired effect, gets some production and distribution proposals and finally, in 2005, the first full-length "Overflow" is published for Le Parc Music. The album contains 11 songs that best represent the music of Madwork, a variety of atmospheres that is very well received by the press, while not facilitating the classification of the band in a well specific genre.
The most important magazines who have reviewed "Overflow": RockHard (ITA): 8/8 – RockSound (ITA): 7/10 – Heavy-Metal.it (ITA): 8/10 – hardSounds.it (ITA): 87/100 – TrueMetal.it (ITA): 83/100 – Harm.us (USA): 9/10 – Metal.de (GER): 8/10 - Encrucijada-melodic.com.ar (ARG): 5/5
Soon after "Overflow" Madwork start to work on a second album, but in 2008 the guitarist and co-founder of the group Jork friendly leaves the band.
It’s difficult to fill the empty place left by Jork, but finally in 2011 Madwork find in Nicolò Greppi the guitarist with the right mentality and the necessary technical capacity. New songs come to life, with a more aggressive and electronic mood, but still in the atypical Madwork style.
Madwork still exist and is seriously going to be talked about.
