THE MARS MODEL took shape early 2019, a combined effort of individuals in different genres and colors. No name dropping of past efforts is needed here as we want our sound and fury to be judged by the passengers willing to stop, listen, think and let it all sink in. The band has 5 individuals with the same passion for towering riffs, swirling electro melodies mixed, aggressive intense drums and a no nonsense message.
THE MARS MODEL is confidence and conviction and will be an entrenched force to be reckoned with as the genre moves toward a new era.
When we are simultaneously more connected and yet more isolated than ever...an ever changing world, an increase in depression, coldness. At the same time, there is a blossoming taking place, a heightened awareness of sidekicks and members of our kind.
So, for every coin, two equally integral sides to consider. The light and the dark and find precious balance within them.
Listeners will find tension, rage, desperation and happiness in this debut 4 track release.
Gothicmetal, gothrock, postpunk, darkwave, industrial, hardcore, … all thrown in the blender resulting in a smoothie that will please fans of Killing Joke, Fields Of The Nephilim, Merciful Nuns and the whole Solar Lodge universum.
2020 is shaping up to be a banner year for the band, Now it is up to everyone to find a way to fight the darkness and to focus on the light, and as it’s always been, music/message is a sublime place to start.
