Mar de Grises
Mar de Grises is a Chilean death/doom metal band created in 2000. A good translation of "Mar de Grises" would be "Sea of Grief", even when Grises is the plural form for grey, the color of sorrow in Spanish as it is blue in English.
Members of the band met while studying at university and formed a group just with the idea to spend some leisure time.
Inspired in bands like My Dying Bride, In the Woods..., Emperor, Poema Arcanus, Anathema, Samael, Death, Tiamat, At The Gates, and non-metal bands
Their compositions, while embracing canons from an evolutionary doom metal style, float around other genres such as progressive rock, post-rock, ambient, electronic music, death metal and others.
Their first demo was recorded in 2002, and was convincing enough to get them a contract with Finnish label, Firebox Records. This was quite rare at the time for a rock or metal band from South America, as the band was barely even known in Chile itself.
