/ABOUT THE BAND

Hailing from the beachfront town of Livorno, Italy, metalcore outfit TASTERS blasted out of their serene surroundings touting a blend of metal and hardcore with dark electronics influences and orchestral atmospheres.
From December 2009 Tasters started touring outside Italy, hitting United Kingdom with the Scottish metalheads Bleed From Within in December 2009 and as headliners in February/march 2010 and and touring Russia for three times with a total of more than 50 incredible gigs, becoming the foreign band playing more shows in the ex USSR territories and growing a huge fanbase in those areas.

At the end of 2010 the band released the video of "Please destroy this world"(by Salvatore "Xavy" Perrone) on BlankTV, first single taken from the band's new full length "Reckless till the end" recorded mastered and mixed at Adrenaline studio in Livorno by the band's singer and sound engineer Daniele Nelli and Davide Bitozzi.
After a new Russian tour, playing tons of shows, producing the new Album "Reckless Till The End", photoshootings, Artworks, social platforms, creating new ideas, changing ideas etc. TASTERS got their so much deserved record deal by NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS releasing the first full lenght in September 2011 in EU/AUSTRALIA/JAPAN and received great reviews. In the meantime Tasters shot the video for "Sleeping with Spirits" directed by Tom Welsh (While She Sleeps, Architects, Your Demise etc..) The release was joined by a 30 shows full European Tour with Texas in July in October 2011 and followed by another full European tour with Of Mice & Men.

The band attended two of the most important summer festival in Europe like Metalcamp and SummerBreeze and again played a huge tour in Russia playing with Papa Roach in Ekaterinburg and touring in almost every corner of that country. In 2013 the vocalist of the band joined Upon This Dawning and left Tasters, which had a break of 2 years watching auditions and finally in 2014 found the new frontman Manuel Manca (previously singer of the band Avenue of Heroes). Tasters started writing new music and they're now ready to hit the roads again, with a new album on the way.
