PIAH MATER picture
Founded in 2010 by vocalist/guitarist Luiz Felipe NETTO and guitarist Igor Meira, PIAH MATER plays a brand of extreme metal that has deep roots in progressive rock territory. Though openly showcasing influence from the likes of ENSLAVED, Opeth and IHSAHN, the band is diligent when it comes to pursuing its own sound and it's not particularly interested in fitting in any genres or trends. 2014 saw the release of its debut album “Memories of Inexistence”, receiving a very positive response from fans of the genre and worldwide underground media outlets. With the addition of drummer Kalki Avatara to its ranks, the band released a new full-length record entitled “The Wandering Daughter” on October 5th, 2018 via Code666. The opus was once again produced and mixed by the band and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios, Sweden and feature original artwork by renowned French artist Sylfvr.

Brazilian-based progressive death metal outfit Piah Mater was formed in 2010 by guitarists Luiz Felipe Netto and Igor Meira, as an outlet for their personal approach to sombre melodies, high-energy riffs and unconventional song structures. 2014 saw the release of their debut album ‘Memories of Inexistence’, since when they have brought drummer Kalki Avatara onboard, and they are now releasing their second album. These guys move between some progressive and melodic rock elements, as well as going full into death and even atmospheric black metal. There are times when the vocals are melodic and softly sung, others when they have been influenced more by Dio, and then others where they are incredibly gruff and unintelligible.

Now, I like my metal to be complex, and there is no doubt that these guys really know what they are doing, with some incredibly complex passages. The issue here is that they are so good at the multiple different styles on show, that it actually detracts from the music as a whole. They jump around from one style to another within the same song, multiple times, and it becomes quite hard to listen t. It is undoubtedly clever, and there is no doubting their skills, but there are times when “less is more” and I know I didn’t enjoy this album nearly as much as I would have done if there had been more focus on what they were doing.

Eclectic in many ways, I found this a really difficult album to get inside, and even playing it multiple times just got me more annoyed with it, and I just can’t warm to it at all which is a real shame as they certainly know what they are doing

Funny thing, in some regions of Brazil (Paraná state, I think), the word "piá" is a slang for kid or brat!
