Marco è chitarrista professionista e insegnante presso Mmi sede di Como.
Suona sui palchi dall’età di 13 anni e ha all’attivo, oltre il progetto solista, anche un progetto di inediti italiano “Oltraggio alla Corte”. Conta svariate collaborazioni con gruppi a cui dedica la propria professionalità anche come compositore e arrangiatore.
I’ve had my first encounter with a guitar at the age of 7. I’ve never left it since then. I play and create music inspired to new metal, but with a focus on the great masters of the genre. I started my musical education at CPM in Milan and continued my professional studies at MMI (Modern Music Institute). There I’m also a teacher with courses of basic, intermediate and professional level for any age. Loving music means never stop learning its secrets and technical and melodic refinements. This is the reason why I still have two great guitar teachers like Alex Stornello and Gianluca Ferro, the two being internationally renowned artists. I also compose and produce music and my focus is always on the harmony in all its shapes and through all the possible instruments. To me, technique alone may end up being a limit to expression, whereas harmony is a pure expression of endless feelings and emotions. One of my key values is team work, that’s why I have an Italian metal Band called “Oltraggio alla Corte”. We’ve just published our first album “Respirare” and we’re ready to hit the stage! Music and guitar are limitless, both in terms of genres and composition. I like experimenting outside the pure metal world by playing with groups, whose passion and devotion give an added value to my music culture. I’m a Schecter Guitars Italia Endorser through Gold Music srl and I have two beautiful white Hellraiser guitars, 6 and 7 chord respectively. Besides I’m a new endorser of Dogal Strings, Italian company of strings, 100% made in Italy
Io e la chitarra ci siamo conosciuti quando avevo 7 anni e da quel momento non l’ho più lasciata, suonando e creando brani che si ispirano principalmente alla nuova scuola del Metal, ma che strizzano sempre l’occhio ai grandi maestri che hanno aperto la strada a questo genere musicale. Ho intrapreso la mia prima formazione professionale al CPM, per poi proseguirla e approfondirla nella realtà dell’MMI, dove tutt’ora insegno presso la sede di Como con corsi personalizzati per ogni livello ed età. Amare la musica significa non smettere mai di impararne i segreti e le finezze tecniche e melodiche, ed è per questo motivo che sto affidando la mia formazione continua ad Alex Stornello e Gianluca Ferro, personaggi davvero innovativi nell’ambito chitarristico. Oltre ad insegnare musica, la compongo e la produco dando valore all’armonia in tutte le sue forme e in tutti i suoi strumenti; ritengo che la tecnica fine a se stessa limiti il musicista, l’armonia, al contrario, è pura espressione di emozioni e stati d’animo infiniti. Credo molto nel lavoro di squadra e con il mio gruppo principale, gli Oltraggio alla Corte ho appena pubblicato il nostro primo CD “Respirare”, il cui messaggio verrà presto diffuso su quanti più palchi possibili. La musica e la chitarra non hanno limiti, né compositivi, né di genere, mi piace infatti sperimentare anche generi che esulano dal puro metal e suonare con altri gruppi la cui passione e dedizione danno un valore aggiunto alla cultura musicale. Grazie a Gold Music srl sono Endorser di Schecter Italia con le mie due Hellraiser, 6 e 7 corde, e di Dogal Strings, casa italiana produttrice di corde per strumenti 100% made in italy.

MY NAME IS LIAR Official Video
Marco Borghi New single track from the Ep "Red Phoenix"
First official video from the new Ep out now!
Already available in Brazil the new album of the Dutch of sad iron – ” Chapter II – the deal “. formed in the early 1983 s, the band had 2 albums released, ” total damnation ” in 1983 and ” The Antichrist ” in 2016. The Band Returns with this new album keeping the same speed / thrash metal from the 80s
Heavy metal band Sad Iron was formed 1979 in Hoorn, the Netherlands, by guitarist Bernard Rive. The band’s initial line-up was rounded out by Dirk Ooms (bass),
Gerrit Soering (drums) and Jan Palenstijn (vocals). Following Sad Iron’s performance in a battle-of-the-bands competition, the audience unanimously agreed that they were among the Netherlands’ top metal acts.
Marc van den Bos: Guitar, vocals; Bernard Rive: Guitar; Bjorn Hylkema: Bass, backing vocals; Marco Prij: Drums
Shortly after, Sad Iron committed their first songs to vinyl, as part of the live split ‘Holland Heavy Metal Vol. 1’, which featured tracks from the band including ‘Sad Iron’, ‘Schoolgirls’ and ‘Thunder & Lightning’. Voted the best band of the evening, Sad Iron were awarded a day of studio time, which resulted in their full-length debut, ‘Total Damnation’! With new vocalist
Herke van der Poel
and, subsequently, new bassist Charles Heijnen, Sad Iron were ready for battle! As one of the first speed metal bands in the Netherlands (possibly the very first), Sad Iron were compared to
likes of Raven and Exciter and helped trigger the birth of the New Wave of Dutch Heavy Metal! In 1985, Sad Iron entered the studio to record follow-up to ‘Total Damnation’. Entitled
‘The Antichrist’, the album would not see the light of day until many years later due to issues with various record labels, including bankruptcy. Following this misfortune, Sad Iron was put
on the back burner, with the exception of some occasional live shows. Nothing more was heard from Sad Iron until 2000, when they played a highly successful reunion show at the
Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival in Hoorn. Revitalised, the band embarked on the Dutch Steel Attack Tour with fellow Netherlands bands Vortex and Hammerhawk, which saw them perform
at a variety of venues both in the Netherlands and abroad.
In 2015, Sad Iron featured on the compilation album ‘Dutch Steel’, a project of renowned Dutch heavy metal journalist Robert Haagsma. Haagsma was also responsible for generating interest
in the band’s second album, ‘The Antichrist’, which ultimately led to its release in 2016! ‘The Antichrist’ was received to critical acclaim from, amongst other publications, the Dutch newspaper
De Volkskrant, who referred to it as ‘a first-class feel-good album’.

Midnight Bullet is 4 piece group from Finland - rock band with heavy touch spiced with some punk flavours. Every song has some thought and the lyrics has a story to tell. We try to connect people and it's great if you can recognize yourself in the song. We try to say that we're not alone in this world, don't get stuck inside your head. Sometimes the truth will hurt! Be ready to scream your voice sore and bang your head!!
Tuomas Lahti - Vocals, guitars | Mikko Nokelainen - Drums | Lauri Ikonen - Lead guitars | Mirko Miettinen - Bass
Midnight Bullet will release their third studio album "Into The Fire"on May 3rd 2019. The Band combines heavy and punk music with tight riffs and catchy melodies. Midnight Bullet's new album will be released via Inverse Records, mixing and mastering is made by Juuso Turkki (Ambiwave Audio Productions, The Hypothesis).
"Into the Fire" cover art represents the "bad" black ball which is inside in all of us. This black ball can be depression, insecurity, fear etc. and how those feelings are sometimes stronger and sometimes weaker. All the songs are telling these stories in the different angles.
The album has dynamics and the atmosphere changes with different tempos and interpretation. Band is playing with the same enthusiasm like it was back in the old days when it all get started. Midnight Bullet is tighter than ever!
