The loud, dirty and noisy project will hit the shores of the Great White North on April 3, 2019, and play 8 gigs in 10 days.
Now with a refined live trio that has re-recorded the original release ‘Louder’, as well as the debut single ‘Sleeping Memories’ that was later released as a music video, N E K E R, is keeping a proud southern sound with subtle elements of metalcore and death metal. His live show not to be missed especially by fans of Pantera, Down, and Everytime I Die; he will be performing on the following dates listed below.
N E K E R adds:
“The first album, Louder, is above all instinct but in a good way. I put in it everything that was in my mind at that time, no frills. This was partly due to the fact that I couldn’t wait to show my work to the world.”

N E K E R is an Italian Southern metal project that came into being in 2013 initially as a solo project, after N E K E R’s (bass/vocal) departure from a now defunct metalcore band. He intended to create a sound with strong southern influences without forgetting the years spent playing and listening to genres such as post-hardcore, screamo, and metalcore.
In 2015, with the recruitment of Alessandro Eusebi (guitar) and Daniele Alessi (drums), the live band was fully formed and they hit the studio to re-record the single “Sleeping Memories” with the aim to make an official video. The video was released in January 2016 and the live band took to touring. Later in 2016 “Louder” was re-recorded and supported with a European tour. Having conquered several countries across Europe solo artist N E K E R set his attention to the masses across the Atlantic as well as recording another album.
