The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Marasme.
1-Extremely slimness or weakening of the human body.
2-Moral or physical hanging, motionless.
Marasme was born in January of 2008 when five musicians from different styles met to form a musical project with more personal, twisted , and definitely, different ideas: Jeroni (vocals; ex-Strangled), Tomeu (guitar; TeCorrs, ex-Venus Inferna), Manuel (guitar; ex-Stones From The Sky), Jaume (bass; ex-Dogma) and David (drums, ex-Dogma).
In the end of that year, they self-released their first recording, "Marasme" EP. In 2009, they polished their style as well as the visual aspect of the shows, including video projections. In the winter they started recording their first album, "Mirroir", and in the beginning of 2010 Higinio joined the band to take care of all the visual aspects and video projections.
The influences of Marasme are extremely wide, from Sludge to Progressive Rock as well as Post-Rock, Drone, Metal, Hardcore or Avantgarde. The band cites influences such as Neurosis, Red Sparrowes, Isis, Wolves In The Throne Room, Opeth, and Mastodon.
In listening to the songs posted on their MySpace page, the band has some potenial. I particularly like the tune "Waves". It starts off with a bit of a jazz beat, then wallows around a while until this enormous "wave" of crushing guitars destroys your very being as the vocalist growls at you with sincere anger. Worth your time to check them out.
