1 min read

New Jersey’s screamo innovators MASSA NERA surprise fans with an unexpected release, ‘D//Q//B[2.0]’, a remix album of their acclaimed work ‘Derramar | Querer | Borrar‘.

Drawing inspiration from albums like ’26 Mixes for Cash’ and ‘Further Down the Spiral’, this new project continues the band’s tradition of raw, emotional hardcore while exploring new sonic territories.

This release follows last year’s feature on their influences and impact on the screamo scene, highlighting their journey from raw, unfiltered anger to a more nuanced, post-rock-infused sound.

The new album promises to be a fresh reinterpretation of their celebrated style, offering a renewed glimpse into the depth and creativity of MASSA NERA. Listen for yourself.

The band credits their exploration of electronic music during the original album’s creation as a key inspiration, leading them back to the remix albums that shaped their early musical experiences.

This new project allowed them to revisit and reinterpret the core themes of ‘DQB’, paying homage to their musical roots while pushing boundaries.

The collaboration with a diverse group of artists such as Amy Christine, Seaphoamm, and Planning for Burial, among others, has resulted in a transformative experience. These artists have taken the essence of MASSA NERA’s work and reimagined it, offering listeners a rich tapestry of styles ranging from noise and techno to hip-hop.
