Bio

Luca Brasi is a HardcoreMetal band. We are not here to reinvent the wheel, but we want to mosh things up. In no way we try to be some artsy band that tries to combine all different musical styles in order to show how open-minded we are. "Keeping it simple and keeping it clear", is what we stand for. Just take a look at our music, our lyrics, our band policy or our attitude to see what we believe is Hardcore. We would describe our music like straight forward Hardcore with some dashes of metal thrown in. Just plain and simple, hard and fast, but keeping the moshparts as an essantial good. Our inspiration comes from bands like Hatebreed, Throwdown, Integrity, Unbroken and even Chorus X or Judge, but also from various metal-bands like At the Gates, In Flames, Crowbar etc.
