Hailing from north of Italy (Milan), FORGOTTEN TEARS originally formed in 2005 with a four-man core - singer/guitarist Faust Quaggia, guitarist Paolo 'Allu' Beretta, bassist Andrea 'Gio' Giovannoni and drummer Matteo Torres. Faust and Matteo had already been playing together for years in different projects, the same goes for Allu and Gio.

In 2008 FORGOTTEN TEARS recorded a four-track promo cd at DB Studios, produced by the very appreciated Ettore Rigotti (Disarmonia Mundi, Slowmotion Apocalypse, Stigma, etc.). After the recording sessions Faust Quaggia wanted to devote himself only to vocals in order to improve the rhythmic guitar parts, too. After few line up changes Alessandro La Porta joined the band as the new guitarist.

During 2010 the band recorded the first full length album, called "Words To End", and shared the stage with many important bands like All Shall Perish, Bleeding Through, Aborted, Rotten Sound and Bleed From Within.

Forgotten Tears's Current Members

  • Faust Quaggia (vocals)
  • Paolo Beretta (guitars)
  • Alessandro La Porta (guitars)
  • Matteo Torres (drums)
  • Andrea Giovannoni (bass)

"Words To End" is a 11-track opus that drives the listener through many different music influences, extreme and brutal parts, catchy riffs, technical solos, neckbreaking breakdowns and downtempos, passing through introspective and emotional parts as well. Fans of Unearth, Parkway Drive, All Shall Perish, Killswitch Engage, Darkest Hour, August Burns Red, In Flames, Soilwork, At The Gates (and many other bands of the modern melo-death & metalcore scene) will simply love it. "Words To End" wisely combines the best of the Modern European Death Metal scene and the newest American hardcore/metalcore/deathcore wave, it will be highly appreciated by both extreme metal fans and melodic metal fans, thanks also to its particular multifaceted influences.
