From The Embrace biography
FROM THE EMBRACE is a Tampa, Florida based quartet that plays technical Progressive Death Metal. The band was formed in 2007 by Devin GARCIA and J.T. HOSACK. With the addition of the guitarist Billy TOLER and frontman Nick MARRERO on harsh vocals, in early 2009, the band's sound took on a more aggressive texture and the band began writing new material.

2009 marked the year FROM THE EMBRACE recorded their first EP at Mana Studios. This was followed up by a few promotional gigs. Following the release of a second EP entitled "The Grind", the band embarked on a Winter tour in December of 2010 running into the new year of 2011, which took the band through the South and Midwest of the United States.

The band is currently writing their first full length album, which is expected to be released in early 2012.

Review by Rune2000
Special Collaborator Prog Metal Team

— First review of this album —
3 stars Tampa-based From The Embrace aren't really a band that I would have ever stumbled upon have it not been for my involvement into the Prog Metal Team activity here on PA, but it's these moments that make it all the more rewarding to function as a collaborator! The Grind is the band's second EP featuring pretty much the sound that one would expect of a collective that plays Tech/Extreme Metal music, with the exception of this EP actually consisting of two and not six compositions.

The first five tracks create a cohesive Tech Metal mini epic called The Grind and it's quite a spectacle once the composition really gets going with the first tones of Discerning. Fabrication and the title track continue this roller-coaster ride and it's great fun hearing this young band's evolution throughout the performance. The Intro and Outro sections might seem unnecessary seeing that the entire composition only lasts for just a bit under 14 minutes, but that can be attributed to the band's inexperience at such an early phase of their carrier.

The second and final track on this EP is La Flama Blanca and it's a bit more traditional in both the performance and tone, even though there are quite a few really catchy guitar moments that I find very pleasing to my ears. I'd say that The Grind have definitely given me a pleasant teaser of the things to come and I'm interested to see how From The Embrace will progress their sound with the upcoming full length release!

**** star songs: Discerning (4:43) Fabrication (3:23) The Grind (4:03) La Flama Blanca (4:14)

*** star songs: Intro (0:36) Outro (1:02)
