Prog-Rock/Metal Act Quo Releases TRAMA via Machine Man Records on March 6!

Machine Man Records recording artist Quo releases TRAMA. Quo is a solo side-project from Nate Exx Gradowski of AutomatoN and Isolated Antagonist.

From Machine Man Records:
“Created in early 2016, Quo is a progressive rock/metal journey dealing with the darkest human life issues with content dealing with death, loss, mental illness, the paranormal and loneliness.”

Trama is lyrically introspective but mindfully observant of the external world around the individual vantage point. Musically, its resemblance places one foot in the slight past and one against the rear-end of the future. Quo gives a new voice for prog rock/metal by blurring the lines and adding the atmosphere.” –

TRAMA will be released on March 6 in digital-only format via Bandcamp.
