Shortly about us

Martiria is an epic/doom metal rock band formed back in the '80s and re-founded (after a long pause) in 2002. Seven album published (last one R-Evolution, with ex Black Sabbath Vinny Appice - 2014).

The band was formed back in the '80s. At the beginning the band was very much oriented towards Doom/Metal sounds such as: early Candlemass and Black Sabbath. After releasing just a few demos and featuring various musicians, in 1998 the members of the group decide to take a break for a while in order to experience different projects. (continue)

Info & booking


Rick Martin Anderson

Andy Menario


Rick Anderson, previous Warlord singer, aka Damien King III, has been Martiria singer from the first album, The Eternal Soul (2004) till the recording of On the way back (2011).

In January 2012, after the great live show at Play it Loud in Bologna, in order to move in the direction of a more intense LIVE activity (made difficult by the physical distance between the singer and the rest of the members, who are based in Rome), Rick Anderson and Andy take the very suffered decision to momentarily split their ways after almost ten long years together.

The heavy heritage of Damien King was temporarly taken by Freddy (2012) and then by Flavio Cosma (2013- 2014) who recorded the album R-Evolution (2014).
In the meanwhile, Rick worked in studio with Bill Tsamis' Warlord (2011-2013) recording the album The Holy Empire (2013).

Then, both Martira and Rick took a long break, till 2022.
And now, the man is back and anything can happen...
