Metasoma is a Metal band from London, founded in 2009 by Misiek (rythm guitar) and Voytek (lead guitar). Group has been soon joined by Amro (vocals). After transformation period line up has been completed by Hugo (drums) and Don Merritt (bass).
Music played by Metasoma is being considered as a mixture of American Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, for some it might be classified as NU Metal. Many complimented the group to be similar to metal giants like Disturbed or System of a Down. Very characteristic sound is a combination of heavy groovy guitar riffs, unique and versatile growling and melodic vocals, low and crushing bass and precise drumming.
Main influences are Metallica, Black Label Society, Slayer, Pantera, Down, Five Finger Death Punch, Machine Head, Megadeth, Sepultura,Soundgarden, Black Sabbath.
Metasoma live shows are a monster! Great sound, brilliant stage presence, connection with the crowd and joy that each band member experiences during concert is something that any metal fan will memorize. Metasoma has played many gigs throughout UK, starting on mini tour in 2010, through gigs at Shepherd's Bush Empire London, Underworld Camden Town to only name a few. Metasoma won Cooltura Festival in 2010, they progressed to national final of Global Battle of the bands 2011/2012, got through the semi-finals of Live and Unsigned competition.
Since the beginning band has released two EP's - 'Metal Erosion' and 'Dead Happy'. Massive step forward is debut upcoming self released album, soon to be out - 'Mirror of Life'. Much grown up as opposed to first release 'Mirror of Life' contains 10 all original songs.
“Metasoma 'Metal Erosion' Gener:Metal Featuring a massive sounding production(courtesy of band guitarist Michael Sedzielewski) This five-track disc is inpressively bruising encounter.Four of the five songs are outstanding ('Older' suffers from not knowing what it wants to be and is the weakest cut on offer) but the awesome little track(featuring a fantastic vocal performance from singer Amro) the Velvet Revolver-esque 'Rast A Peace','Lost My Way and the fabulous 'I Am Me' more than make up for it. Definitely a band to whatch out for. Mik Gaffney Power Play Magazine.”

''To summarise this album, it would be best to say that it carries enough depth for longevity; it's played very well and incorporates plenty of their influences and personality. If I took a gamble and bought this album without hearing it, I'd find myself wiping my brow with relief that it delivers quality''-Gary 'Rockulus' Clarke-MetalTalk.Net
