Hailing from the beachfront town of Livorno, Italy, metalcore outfit TASTERS (formerly known as Taster’s Choice) blasted out of their serene surroundings touting a blend of metal riffing, punishing breakdowns, , melodic mixed to growl and scream vocals and electronics.
The band was formed in 1999 and released two full-length albums, “Shining” in 2005 (Shark Records/ Gencross Records) and “The Rebirth” in 2009 (Bagana Records) from which released the video of the single “Make Your Game”,directed by Salvatore”Xavy” Perrone, on air on the best Italian and European rock tvs.
