Doomed Confessionary: Pedro Porto Fonseca (Zero Massive)

Zero Massive is an instrumental metal project from Portugal founded by composer and guitarist Pedro Porto Fonseca.

Zero Massive’s self-titled debut album will be released this Friday, May 24th, 2024 and will be available on vinyl and digital.

Pedro Porto Fonseca was joined in studio by producer Mike Ghost, drummer João Colaço and bassist Pedro Simão.

Can you say a few words about your band?
The relationship between any Portuguese person and the Sea is inherent and unavoidable. Some disregard that connection, while others feast on it and create what should have always been there.
Zero Massive, as the name suggests, is equal parts intricately heavy and distantly atmospheric. The massive vastness of the Oceans’ floors where we, as humans, were never meant to reach, juxtaposed with the same water above us in the open troposphere, presents a gripping base concept on which the balanced yet sonically polarised foundation of the band’s identity is built. Drawn-out, detailed intros and mellow segments build up like ancient sediments to construct a towering mountain of sound – Zero Massive is Contrast.
This leviathan sits on the shoulders of a power trio of leading guitars, driving basslines and crushing percussion.
