Frank F and JQR, both Italians from Milan,
met for the first time in the summer of 2009 in Berlin,
having both moved there earlier that year.
With extremely varied musical backgrounds, the two decided to join forces in creating a new project called Effter.
They mix electronic and industrial metal, classical piano and electronic moods, with oppressive rhythms and noise.
After a few months playing together, Effter were signed by German label Danse Macabre Records.
On May 27, 2011 they released their debut album entitled
Since then the duo have performed many gigs, created EPs, remixes and videos as part of their work.
Meanwhile there is a burning desire to take their work to the next level by writing soundtracks too.
In March 2012 Effter launched a new project entitled "EffterStudio".
Frank F and JQR write songs, atmospheres, ambience for drama-thriller-horror movies and videogames that need a dark and ominous sound.
