The band was founded in 2014 by Francesco Tresca (already drummer in Power Quest, Arthemis and Hypnotheticall) together with Mirko Marchesini (Hypnotheticall and Sinatras), Mattia Cingano (Hollow Haze and Hypnotheticall), Enrico Marchiotto and Nicolò Cantele. Watershape play progressive music influenced both by progressive rock (King Crimson, Genesis, Gentle Giant, …) and progressive metal (Dream Theater, Pain of Salvation, Opeth, …) very close to the concept of artist such as Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree. After 2 singles and a couple of video covers Watershape are ready to release their first album entitled “Perceptions” in 2018. The title reflects the idea that everyone could perceive our songs in a different way cause the album has different moods and styles in it and everyone could be moved by different emotions and perceptions by each song. The album got very good reviews. The band did several live shows during 2018 and 2019 promoting the album and supporting band like Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin and Secret Sphere. In 2021 the new album “You are not” is ready to be released, representing a big step forward in developing the style of the band by adding several elements to the compositions.
