Born & raised in a small suburb of Chicago in New Lenox, Illinois, Nicholas Anthony grew up listening to music of all kinds before finding his way to the Industrial section at the local Wax Trax! Records store. Drawn in by the intensity of twisted tunes from bands like Front 242, KMFDM, Stabbing Westward, Nitzer Ebb, their influence quickly led to an irrepressible desire to start making music of his own. He started experimenting with guitars & synthesizers, immediately catching on and creating songs of his own with remarkable attention to detail & gripping, raw emotions bleeding out from every second. Turning his love of horror movies, sci-fi, & soundtracks into sonic soundscapes and aural textures that were unafraid to explore darker terrain became more than a part-time hobby, it became a passion.
But there was still much life to be lived before he could make the music that he truly wanted to.
In the most important move that Nicholas would make for his upcoming career, he rocked the balance of his entire world, roaming & travelling the country to experience everything that life had to offer. Seeing the best, seeing the worst, the whole trip led to profound personal breakthroughs that could have otherwise never been achieved. Inspired beyond any level he’d ever imagined possible, he relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada, reassembled his studio, and went straight into recording. Vividly dark electro-synth tracks and gnarled guitar sounds spawned through the speakers as he wrote the material that would go on to become the most personal & powerful music he’d written to-date. Ready to fully embrace his time and make his mark in 2018 through his own wicked twists on the Industrial sound – Nomad Scorpio is set to detonate with a monstrously addictive debut EP being released officially through Stereo Era Records, available everywhere online & anxiously awaiting your consumption.
