Portuguese Metal Phenomenon NAMELESS THEORY Sign With Wormholedeath

Nameless Theory are tremendously happy and proud to announce that they are signing with Wormholedeath Records for the reissue of their debut album “Into the Void”, due for re-release on October 21st, 2022.

For a couple of months now we’ve been talking to Carlo and his team at Wormholedeath and the feedback and working relation has been absolutely great, above all of our expectations! For us, it is an opportunity of a lifetime and one which we will not take for granted and work our butts off to make it work. Opportunities like these don’t come around often so we are grateful for the trust and we are sure that this is the start of a great relationship.

"Into the Void" was composed between 2013 and 2018. In 2018 we entered the studio to start recording it. The recording process took around one year to be concluded. As for its concept, Into The Void is a dark album as it deals with anxiety, depression, existentialism, and a lot of everyday struggles and events that we have collectively gotten through the years. For this reason, Into the Void is a very personal album and one that we are very proud to have it as our debut. The music was written by all the band members and because of that it mixes a lot of genres and influences, you’ll hear a lot of Iron Maiden vocal lines and guitar melodies, while the guitar and bass riffs may come from bands such as Deftones, Korn but also metalcore acts such as As I lay Dying, which is also a big influence on the drumming in pair with for example Lamb of God. All of this while trying to blink an eye at some prog metal landscapes in terms of song structure and dynamics.

“Nameless Theory” is a metal band from Pinhal Novo, Portugal formed by Pedro Piedade on lead vocals, Márcio Júnior on bass guitar, André Marques on lead guitar, and Igor Pedroso on drums. Their objective is to bring together both the band and the audience in an engaging environment full of energy and emotion.

The band was formed in January 2013 and on April 25th, 2013 the band released their first EP "2013" and spent the following months promoting this work.

As the band performed and rehearsed, they matured and changed their musical direction and approach. Bearing this in mind, the band decided to record a second EP called "Ghosts". The EP was recorded in May/June 2015 at "Le Baron Rouge Studios" in Nirvana Studios by producer Tiago Borges (The Royal Blasphemy) and released on October 17th, 2015.

In September 2018 the band entered Ultrasound Studios in Moita to start recording their first album, which ended up being titled “Into the Void”.Produced by Igor Azougado (Shivers) this work presents itself as a solid summary of the band's years as musicians and people. The album was released independently on February 8, 2020, followed by 4 promotion concerts until an abrupt halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In April 2022 the band signed with the label Wormholedeath to the rerelease of “Into The Void”, an amazing opportunity and partnership that for sure will help Nameless Theory step up their game.

With concerts played all over Portugal in great venues such as"Paradise Garage", "Stairway Club", "Popular Alvalade", "Festival Bardoada, and AJCOI" as well as being the opening act for the bands "Ash Is a Robot" and " O Bisonte", Nameless Theory wants to be one of the next great metal bands to come out of Portugal!
