Italy’s Nefesh Core has signed with Rockshots Records for the release of their debut album “Getaway” on September 25, 2020.
The band was formed in 2018 by Dave Brown and Stefano "Ghigas" Calvagno, both known for their roles in the progressive metal band Metatrone. Ivan Newton is filling the line-up behind the drums and percussions.
Nefesh Core takes inspiration from the New Wave and Dark Music of the '80s as well as mixing typical elements coming from the melodic hard rock and classic metal with '90s Gothic Metal influence. One of the main features of the project is that Dave himself is in charge of the main vocals and keyboard parts.
"'Getaway' is the album of a new dawn. The first son of a new musical journey, the one-way road to get out of a life that’s not giving you the things you really need. It’s an album that has no place for compromises. It’s our heartbeat in a loop. Along with its 10 songs, it’s an unexpected journey into lands we weren’t in before, unknown places, forgotten memories that our instruments will offer to you. 'Getaway' is the flashlight that strikes darkness back, and lets you see through the hidden corners of your mind, soul and personality, and gives you the freedom of the truth, because, as Hegel said: the truth is the whole, and the whole is a process." says the band.
Today the band is unveiling their second single, "Scandal".
"We love this song for artistic reasons (has a great chorus and a grooving instrumental section) and for its contents. It’s a song that points the finger to those who think they are always by the right side of the truth. Those who never failed, the good ones, those who seek the perfect scandal to dress you off, even though the real scandal is them indeed. The family defenders who have two or more secret lovers, the champions of lies who speak of truth, and so on. Every lie they filled their mouth with is a ghost that they keep feeding day after day. Musically we love the chorus and instrumental action: you won’t resist jumping along with the song, we are sure of it!"

For more info:
Nefesh Core is a new rock band made by the common idea of three long time musicians and friends, united by the love for the legendary New Wave and Dark Rock movement of the 80s mixed with musical elements coming from some modern hard rock, almost reaching for some gothic and industrial metal territories. Some of the main features in Nefesh Core are to have Dave Brown, well-known keyboardist and growler in the metal band Metatrone, as clean vocals, after the growl experience of the past years, and Ghigas, historical Metatrone guitarist, on bass, one of his old passions. The band is completed by Ivan Newton, Dave’s old friend, who decided to come back to a more heavy drumming style as he used to play many years ago. Nefeshcore first album “Getaway” is a journey throughout the hidden corners of the human mind and soul, which will make fans of dark and electronic rock music really shocked.
