Don’t Go Too Early to the Asymmetric Universe

Italian instrumental, prog-metal fusionists Asymmetric Universe has signed a new worldwide deal with InsideOutMusic with the first release being a brand new single, ‘Don’t Go Too Early’, that’s out now.

The band, formed by brothers Federico Vese & Nicolò Vese, commented: “We are so excited to join such a big family as InsideOutMusic! Being part of a team with legendary artists and bands that we’ve been listening to since we started studying music, is a dream come true!

“Our new single, ‘Don’t Go Too Early’, is a mixture of fusion-jazz, aggressive progressive metal, wind quartet arrangements and an avant-garde string quartet orchestration, that brings a unique colour to complex yet catchy music. We can’t wait to share with you all the music we are already working on!”

InsideOutMusic’s Freddy Palmer commented: “Asymmetric Universe are a perfect example of the kind of exciting, instrumental guitar music making waves right now, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to add them to the label’s roster, and be a part of their bright future.”

The band is currently confirmed to support Plini and Haken in Milan, Italy on the 5th July, as well as playing Arctangent Festival in the UK on the 16th August alongside Meshuggah, Animals As Leaders and others.

The Vese brothers are mostly self-taught musicians, and been heavily involved in composition and orchestration, as well as music production. Federico has composed music for as wide ranging places as Radio Montecarlo (one of the biggest Italian radio stations), as well as one of the largest Italian amusement park Mirabilandia. He is a metal/rock producer and this background influences his work as a composer in the video game industry. He is also a professional music and guitar teacher with online students from different parts of the world. Nicolò has composed pieces for various orchestral organisations (two pieces were performed in the latest symphonic season of Orchestra Sinfonica of Sanremo and one performed at Rome Jazz Festival in 2021 with a big band), worked as a composer in many Musicals and he is currently working in the video game soundtrack industry (also as a sound designer), ranging from indie games to bigger productions. He also professionally teaches composition, orchestration and adaptive music techniques for video games.

Asymmetric Universe was formed in 2018, with the goal of pushing the limit of modern prog and fusing disparate genres, such as combining metal with jazz and ambient music, alongside chamber orchestration. In 2023, the band released their second EP The Sun Would Disappear As I Imagined All The Stars, that was mixed by Forrester Savell and mastered by Ermin Hamidovic. They also embarked on their first European tour as support to Australian progressive metallers Ne Obliviscaris, as well as opening for Caligula’s Horse in Italy.
