GEODA is a musical project by Facundo López, guitarist and vocalist from Bariloche, Patagonia, Argentina. It is not easy to define the style of GEODA, but we could place it within the genres of melodic and/or technical Death Metal, not far from Thrash Metal, and with some progressive dyes.
The project materializes in 2012 when Facundo, without a stable band, decides to record 12 tracks for his debut album "Firebreak" with the participation of Federico Mele and Andrés Zadunaisky, both musicians from Buenos Aires. This album has had very good reception nationally and internationally. GEODA sought here musicality and expression with a raw and organic sound, concepts that also define the lyrics, that relate social and personal issues with the environment, the search for an awakening, and the attempt to break the shackles of a dystopian world to which we are approaching.
In 2015 and 2016 GEODA made live shows in different cities of Argentina, including Buenos Aires, with Leandro Ulecia on bass and "Punky" Condorí on drums, both also from Bariloche.
Between 2016/2017 Facundo recorded 11 demo songs for a new album and started to look for new musicians to take this project to a higher level. He contacted Dirk Verbeuren, one of the best drummers in the genre, who accepted the challenge and suggested for the bass his friend, the fretless guru Steve Di Giorgio. They're now working on the new record, that will be released febore the end of 2018.
To say that this new album will be spectacular is redundant.

The concept of "organic" that we arbitrarily took to define our style and that is today widely known for its application in agriculture, has its foundations in the production methods that care for the environment and the human health, where natural and sustainable processes are used and where the synthetic products, chemicals, genetically modified seeds, etc., are avoided.
We believe that the "Metal" genre has increasingly industrialized. The audio, the contents and the musical creation in most of the bands has been standardized and aesthetic have been prioritized. We do not intend to be machines although we seek for depth and complexity in our music. We want you to hear what is true. Back to the roots to enjoy what’s real, although that’s far from the perfection that the current music market requires, a delusory perfection usually achieved by the abuse of editing tools and digital technology. We have been dragged by a system that shaped our tastes. Metal became plastic. GEODA doesn’t want to "blow your mind" at the first second, we want you to feel our music, gaining connection gradually. We want that what we say and play to echo in the heart first and then the mind to achieve a deep and long-lasting relationship.
