Martin Grech, a 35-year-old singer, songwriter and musician originally based in England has been featured in an exclusive live studio performance by TesseracT, one of the most famous progressive metal bands in the world right now.
The song, Hexes, features on the band’s newest album Polaris, which came out in late 2015 and also features Grech. Bassist Amos Williams said the band was “very lucky to be able to get Marin Grech into the studio for the performance”.
The video, which was recently uploaded on YouTube, received an incredible amount of positive feedback from all over the world, with one fan hilariously comparing the whole performance to “being served a medium-rare fillet mignon and an ice cold beer after being stranded in the woods for a year”.
Many comments also praised Martin Grech’s vocal performance, begging for more collaborations with the band.
Martin Grech has been making music for two decades now. A song he wrote when was 15 years old, Open Heart Zoo, was featured on a Lexus advert in 2002, with his debut album quickly achieving cult status. Reviews compared his work to the likes of The Cure, Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, and one year later, Grech was invited to play at the Jeff Buckley tribute concert by Buckley’s mother himself. He later moved to California and continued working on a wide variety of material.
Five studio albums and six EPs later, he’s joined a number of other bands and side-projects as a guitarist, pianist, drummer, and singer.
This latest video definitely helped propel Grech even further, with comments already pouring in of TesseracT fans who seem to have just discovered a new favourite.
