The Underground | MARTIAL

The Martial is a sub-genre born at the beginning of the ’90 as one of the post-industrial development. The main goal of this music is to represent the atmosphere of war, that can vary from the Roman Empire legion to the II World War. It is difficult to define a project as martial, considering the numerous influences from classic music and dark folk, however the main theme of the songs is always related to  battles, marches, declarations of devotion for their county or empire. Artists often perform music without lyrics, but is easy to find songs spoken in Italian or German. For this reason, during the years some of these bands were attacked as extreme, professing the return of old regimes as Fascism and Nazism.
