When I saw that MarroTech hailed from Buffalo, NY I knew I had to check them out. On further inspection, I learned a few things. MarroTech is one guy named Joe Marro (supported by Crossing The Event Horizon’s fretless bass man Sagar Nadgir) and he’s from Newark, NY, a small town 15 minutes from my hometown. Plus, I’m pretty sure he goes to my college. This honestly could not have been any stranger for me but I’m glad I looked into the cosmic/ambient progressive metal soloist. 

MarroTech’s debut EP “Non-Material Space” is expected to release in late March so hopefully in a week. His Bandpage samples some of the tracks he has written and they’re interesting to say the least. “Beyond Earth: XPE” and the teaser for “Taygeta” have elements of Between The Buried and Me, a huge inspiration in the Prog Metal scene. While Marro concerns himself with the guitar, drum/synth programming, and atmospheres, he adds guest musicians so that his song is not purely instrumental. Vocalist John Walsh of The Mechnical Migraines adds to the atmospheric metal.

Be on the lookout for this EP in the next week or so. Cosmic inspired metal is always interesting to listen to and gives my metalcore ears a break.
