I play guitar since 2006, started composing my own little songs quite early and got into home recording by 2014.
I like do all stuff on my own, even if that means a lower quality. So composing, playing, recording and mixing such as all the artworks are done by the same person.
Emerge is born from the hand of Xalo Martinez, as a personal project, with the collaboration of Pedro Méndes and Marcelo Aires, to finish giving strength to this Spanish-Portuguese alliance
The band sits on the metal genre, since settled in its base djent, but also features varied moments, such as groove, progressive, death, rock or pop melodies. The project is based in Ourense, Galicia, although it has just been diverted to Braga (Portugal) with the intention of executing, recording and drawing the raw material.
In september 2013, we decided to step out of the comfort zone which until that time had been death metal. Being big fans of instrumental music, spanning from Progressive Rock, such as The Aristocrates, to metal and the djent movement with bands such as Animals As Leaders, Chimp Spanner, Modern Day Babylon etc., we started rehearsing and founded Asemic, which then meant only one guitar and drums. We soon completed our formula with our bass and guitar players and have been composing and trying to make cool stuff in our under-developed progressive scene, in Romania.
