Since 2014 Stage of Reality performs Electronic Groove Rock Metal music with progressive influences.

The band is based in Rome, Italy and performed all over Europe both as headliner and as support act of famous artists like BLAZE BAYLEY, ANGRA, VINNIE APPICE, MARK BOALS, ARTHEMIS, DGM, INSIDIA, GUS G, HAGGARD, SODOM and many more.












THE BEGINNING: At the beginning of 2012 Andrea Neri records Blaze Bayley’s “The King of Metal” which was followed by a three months european tour of sixtysix gigs. Once back from the tour, Andrea decides to stop working with the prog metal band Astarte Syriaca and he starts to think about a new project. After few months STAGE OF REALITY was born.


2014 – FIRST ALBUM: “THE BREATHING MACHINES”: This is the first full length concept album of the band, released by Nuvi Records in October 2014. “The Breathing Machines”, characterized by a hard rock sound mixed with progressive and crossover influences, takes inspiration from two main literary models: “Corsair Writings” by Pier Paolo Pasolini and “Animal farm” by George Orwell, to describe the lack of humanity and the overwhelming anxiety of modern times.


2015 – THE THEATER EXPERIENCE: In May 2015, after the Spanish tour, for one night only “The Breathing machines” became a multimedia experience. The Ambra Jovinelli theater in Rome hosts “Macchine che Respirano”, a show combining music, theatre and literature. The band performed the entire album while the actor Alessandro Porcu performed some extracts from Pasolini’s “Corsair writings”.


2017 – THE SECOND ALBUM: “STAGE OF REALITY”, the self-titled album is a turning point in the band’s musical research. Each one of the ten original songs in “Stage of Reality” is a raging critique to our society, dealing with specific social issues or with some of the most obscure episodes in the Italian chronicle, such as the Stefano Cucchi case (the 30 years old mysteriously died while in custody). Two prestigious collaborations make this project unique on the alternative metal scene: Blaze Bayley will perform “Warlord” and Amanda Somerville will give her voice to the only cover song of the album, “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse.


On April 1st 2017 the band sings a deal with ROCK AVENUE RECORDS USA.


On October 14th the album is released at Maximum Rock Festival in Bucharest (RO), the show is followed by the italian tour that touches the cities of Treviso, Milano, Modena, Roma, Salerno and Bari.


2018 – ON TOUR: The band performs in several city gigs like the Overload Guitar Night and the Mezzabarba Day. It is now endorsed by Overload guitars and Mezzabarba amps. In May 2018 SOR is the opening band for Vinnie Appice (Black Sabbath) during the east european leg of his tour, performing in Budapest, Vienna, Nove Mesto, Bochnia and Olomouc.


2019 – THE NEW BEGINNING: The band begins to work on new instrumental tracks, taking an interest in and studying dubstep and techno. It’s precisely this that has prompted Stage Of Reality to let themselves be contaminated by electronic music and build their own ELECTRONIC ALTERNATIVE ROCK. 


2020 – THE PANDEMIC ERA: Despite the very singular situation, the band perform twice just before the lockdown and start to work on new material. 


2021 – PANDEMIC PART 2: Again the band performs twice in Rome in November and December 2021. They had other two gigs planned for the beginning of 2022 but unfortunately the Covid 19 situation in Italy forced them to reschedule.


2022 – The band is writing new songs, in the meanwhile they start the collaboration with PR Lodge Agency Europe and Stage of Reality three brand new singles obtaining great results on both Spotify and Youtube.


On April 1st 2022 Stage of Reality sign with EMG – Extreme Management Group.
