De La Muerte is a project born at the beginning of 2014 from Gianluca Mastrangelo (voice) and Gianluca Quinto (guitars). Then Christian D’Alessandro (guitars), Luca Ciccotti (drums) and Claudio Michelacci (bass) were involved to complete the line-up. Simon Ciccotti joined his brother Luca on drums as special guest for the first self-titled album of the band but became a permanent member of the line-up. They come up with a fresh, aggressive and modern hard ‘n heavy: a new kind of heavy metal. Charmed by the mexican “Nuestra Señora de la Santa Muerte” cult they draw inspiration from those “damned stories”.
After the release of their self-titled debut album (for Bakerteam Records) they promoted their music sharing the stage with great artists and bands including: Exodus, Therion, Russell Allen, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Circus Maximus , Taake, Blaze Bayley, Vision Divine, Jinger, Deathless Legacy, Kaledon, Astra, Sick ‘n’ Beautiful and more.
After promoting their first EP in 2015-2016 in February-March 2017 the band has been touring with Russell Allen (Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) for the Metal For Autism TOUR, the band has been also playing with Russell for his live shows.
In July 2017 De La Muerte entered again the Domination Studio for their second LP “VENGANZA”, the new album has been released on December 15th 2018 by REVALVE RECORDS.
In August 2018 Luca and Simon Ciccotti left the band and after few months Andrea De Carolis joined the lineup, so De La Muerte were ready to kick ass again and re-started their live activities in January 2019.
