FOMENTO was never meant to be only a band, it's always been about being a family, sharing an incredible passion for no-frills metal and straight-to-your-face hardcore. If you look for the word FOMENTO in the dictionary you'll find out that it means: instigation, deliberate and intentional triggering of trouble, discord and violence. The band was founded in 2006 and since then it's been shaping its own sound and unique style with punishing riffs and unbelievably brutal drum assaults. FOMENTO has recently redefined their heavy-hitting line up with Fabrizio "Dr. Hate" Damiani (Chosen, Rainspawn) on rhythm guitars, joining brothers Marco Krasinski (bass/vocals) and Matteo Deathbreed (drums) and long time friend Manuel "HeadCutter" Minerva (lead guitar).
"We are a brotherhood dedicated to heaviness, committed to instigation, breathing hardcore and bleeding metal." says Marco, "I know it sounds like a cliché, but you should listen to our new concept album Either Caesars or Nothing before misjudging my words." The effort was recorded and mixed in May, 2008 at Kutso Noise Home by Matteo Gabbianelli who has already worked with the band on their critically acclaimed e.p. Welcome to The Brotherhood. Every song, from the crushing opener The Die is Cast to the furious Menticide, takes you by surprise and just slams you in the fucking balls with all out heaviness. It happens without mercy, with FOMENTO taking the form of a nuclear breakdown with no moment allowing for any respite from the metal carnage. "We challenged ourselves to write the most killer songs we could. The album is a journey through time, a metaphor of how after thousands of years man still makes the same sad mistakes." says Manuel.
On June 6th, 2006 FOMENTO debuted live in Rome (If you didn't get it, it was the 06/06/06) and after two years their long-awaited first full-length Either Caesars or Nothing is being released.
Their new record was anticipated by the release of the single Kill FashionCore. As soon as it was posted online the song hitted the charts like a hurricane establishing FOMENTO as the most popular Italian unsigned band on MySpace. The song has accumulated almost one million plays, an outstanding number for a song that received no commercial airplay. "When I first heard Kill FashionCore, I instantly knew it was going to become one of my favourite songs ever. Playing with these guys it's an honor for me." recalls Fabrizio.
The song has also gained the attention of Chris Beattie of Hatebreed and legendary producer Colin Richardson (Fear Factory, Machine Head and Sepultura) whose enthusiastic reviews are leading the way to make Kill FashionCore become the ultimate anti-emo anthem.
From Rome, their hometown, FOMENTO is ready to destroy you eardrums for good. With almost a dozen blistering songs under their belt, the band is now more dedicated and focused than ever. Get ready to experience brutality in its purest form. Welcome to the brotherhood.
