Event Details

By manner of atmospheric synths and a pounding guitar, you have entered the haunting embrace that is Gregorio Franco. His signature gothic style is energetic and eerie, complete with chapel organs and old-timey harps. The sound is envisioned as Neo-Classical & symphonic, with a high fantasy Rpg direction in mind. Gregorio has drawn upon bands such as Entombed, At the Gates, His Hero is Gone, Catharsis, and Dismember to create the heavy essence in his work. While very different stylistically, the soundtracks of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth have also given him inspiration. While the music itself is harsh and brooding, Gregorio does find joy in being able to craft these universes with chords & melodies and allow the listener to interpret these fantasies in whatever manner they so choose.

Destryur mixes dance music with cinematic horror to produce a sound that will keep you up at night.
