Logic Il Logic Records & Burning Minds Music Group are excited to announce the details of the official debut album by melodic prog rockers, N.Ex.U.S.. The band was formed in 2015 by Christian “Jeremy” Checchin (Guitar) and Fausto “Tex” Tessari (Keyboards), two close friends who, through the years, shared their passion for music, playing in various cover bands. After a brief-but-crucial summit together, they decided to take their artistic career on a next level, and started to compile unreleased material they’d written along the years. New songs were also written to complete the tracklist for what was intended to be their first official studio album. The duo then searched for a skilled singer and a tight rhythm section. Tommaso “Tommy” Galeazzo, Daniele Gallan, and Fabio Tomba were hired on vocals, bass and drums respectively. They approached Italy’s own, extraordinary Alessandro Del Vecchio, sending him some of their demos. Alessandro accepted the task of recording, producing, mixing and mastering, having been intrigued by N.Ex.U.S. since first hearing their material.
The first single “The Mercenary” was released on February 7, 2019. Guitarist Christian Checchin quotes: “I wrote ‘The Mercenary’ together with Fausto back in 2007. We immediately thought it was a very nice track with no frills. Tommaso completed it with an infectious vocal melody, and the song was ready in less than two days. Stilistically it can be considered one of the most AOR-oriented tracks of the entire album. With this song we also won an important contest back in 2017, in front of an audience of about one thousand people. The lyrics tell about the story of a guy, who feels to live in bad and corrupted society. He feels the need to do something for making a better world, just like every hero should do. We should be all strong in the heart just like this guy”.
