After leaving the Brazilian Death/Black Meta band DESDOMINUS in 2005, the talented musician and producer DOUGLAS MARTINS did not leave the music and remained composing material. The result came to be DEEPMEMORIES, his one-man-band project.
In musical terms, the compositions demonstrate cadence, heaviness and different nuances, mixing melody and aggressiveness with beautiful guitars duets, an atmosphere that refers to great icons of Death, Doom, Gothic and Progressive Metal with vocals varying from speeches, singing, choirs and the most pungent screamed and guttural.
The lyrical thematic revolves around the very name “DEEP MEMORIES”. DOUGLAS MARTINS talked about it: “When we read these words, we are immediately referred to memories of very significant moments of our existence as illnesses and death, disappointments, obsessions, moments of panic and depression and if we speak in psyche, we have totally inaccessible records in our memories that store lapses few explored by the human race. This is the lyrical theme of Deep Memories: Expose what these memories produced, produce and still influence in the direction of the intellectual, social and spiritual character of the human race”.
On 21th June, 2018 was released in all social medias the first DEEP MEMORIES music video from the song “The Bitter Taste of Illusion”. The receptiveness was great among the Brazilian headbangers and specialized media.
On 3rd July, 2018 was released by labels HEAVY METAL ROCK RECORDS (Bra) and MISANTHROPIC RECORDS (Bra) a promotional EP containing 2 songs taken from upcoming full-length album: “When the Time For My Last Breath Comes” and “The Bitter Taste of Illusion”. This EP is called “IN TOO DEEP…”.
The full-length album will be released simultaneously in Brazil, Japan and Russia in September 21th, 2018 by HEAVY METAL ROCK RECORDS (Bra) and MISANTHROPIC RECORDS (Bra) INVASION OF SOLITUDE RECORDS (Jap) and GS PRODUCTIONS (Rus). The album title is “REBUILDING THE FUTURE”.
“REBUILDING THE FUTURE” was recorded, produced and masterized by DOUGLAS MARTINS at AJM Studioin Americana – São Paulo during some sessions between 2016 and 2018 and will feature eight songs.
DOUGLAS MARTINS also developed the front artwork from Brazilian and Russian editions. The Japanese edition will have a different front artwork developed by Caio Caldas from CadiesArt (DragonForce, Doro Pesch).
