“A Tear Beyond” is an identity composed of reality, spirit, theatre and music.

When the dusk starts, it takes place and lives over there, where every single thing becomes long and shaped.

It mixes the Mask and the Face.


It represents the breath keeping them both alive, feeding one each other. It delves into the feelings and their color,

melting Gothic and Industrial sound, seeking the proper way to express them trusting words to investigates souls’ depths.


The Rose, the Balance, the Chains, the Wine, the Fool Tarot and the Pen are those elements composing the identity…

the Mask keeps them together safely.


The Grace, the Equilibrium, the Opposites, the Instinct, the Madness and the Knowledge are those elements coming out from it.

Men are only a vehicle…



The band was founded in 2008 in Vicenza, Italy.

"A Tear Beyond" comes from the fusion of six elements with more than 15 years of musical experience.

In 2012 came out their first studio album “BEYOND” followed by a strong live activity.

In 2015 the band presents the second studio album “MAZE OF ANTIPODES” by the label “House of Ashes” (Milan - IT).

The album was supported by releasing an official videoclip “Behind the Curtains I’m Dying” and a sequence of live gigs opening for international

bands like Moonspell, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Folkstone, Isole, Septicflesh, Dark Lunacy, Jack Frost and Extrema.

In the spring of 2018 the band released their third studio album “HUMANITALES” and the official videoclip of the single "Angels out of Grace".

The band repertoire blend industral electro sounds with gothic metal arrangements and melodies.

Key point of the band is the live theatricality when the audience can get involved in a true 360° show

by means of scene costumes, Venetian masks, performers and intermission shows.
