ROCK and metal fans will be taken on a dark, intense journey into the realm of nightmares and hallucinations with a Wigan band’s debut EP.

Four-piece Natusro are putting the finishing touches to the, four-track release, which is likely to be self-titled and will hit the shelves later this month.

The band, made up of vocalist Rob Derbyshire, guitarist Chris Farron, bassist Will Potts and drummer Tom Farron, have been recording the EP at The Motor Museum studio in Liverpool with producer Al Groves, who has worked with successful metal act Bring Me The Horizon.

Inspired by the likes of Alice in Chains, Korn and French metal band Gojira as well as groups such as Incubus, the release takes listeners on a claustrophobic and personal journey, with the music and lyrics originally inspired by Rob’s experiences and dreams.

He said: “When I was younger I had really bad nightmares and hallucinations, and that was when I started writing, portraying my experiences. I’m basically putting my own life into it.

“The songs are all very different, they all have their own feel, but the subjects are quite dark, about not going anywhere in life and feeling suffocated by it.

“We’re really excited about getting the songs out there. Working with Al was very good, he’s very knowledgeable and he knew exactly what sort of music we want to make.

“I started Natusro as a solo project but now I’ve got three great musicians involved and they’ve had a lot of input.”

Natusro hit the studio after a tough schedule which has seen them performing continuously at the region’s rock venues and have chosen Mannequin, Spew, Suffocation and Basilisk as the four songs from their set to make up the debut EP.

Natusro’s debut EP is set for release later this month. To find out more about the band, visit
