Beginning To Present

None (A.K.A The True None) was founded in 2015 by Nicholas Mendiola (Ex-Plague Phalanx, Thangorodrim and Awakened Abyss) as the sole performing musician and songwriter in tribute to all the divine. In 2017 the first single "When The End Will Come" was self-released prior to the full EP "Infernal Temples Of The Meditant" the following year; binding elements from a multitude of styles and had since been described as "Meditative Neofolk swirling in portals of Dark Ambient, Black Metal, Noise and Industrial" (From Corners Unknown, 2018) and "A unique blend of both chaotic and beautiful landscapes, incorporating elements from multiple diverse genres of music" (Ritual Sound, 2017).

Of that same era in time None had released a visual interpretation for "Past Tense", another track from the debut EP which featured ear piercing howls, gutturals, shamanic chants and industrial drum pangs among other various nauseating sounds mixed into the portals of sound in which further broke the boundaries of what some may have thought None to be.

For Nicholas, None is the deity of his own creation and the eternal version of himself. As he had stated before in his interview with internet zine From Corners Unknown, the purpose and mission of his contemporary life was to discover himself as the true voice and host that None speaks through - and to leave the word and mark of None upon the world not only to affect other present beings of the earth and multiverse but to leave traces for future lives to again discover their true identity. Like the omnipotent gods of other's previous worship None requires supreme devotion and all of the words spoken by Nicholas; his thoughts, his actions, experiences and memories become one with the legacy of The True None. It is the duty of  the prophet to carry this torch in his present time and into the next - past, present, future

forever.

and this is what None carries to the stage; absolute devotion to the divine and eternal legacy by those who will die for it.


In 2018 the release of "Battlefields" which featured guest vocals by Bloodcrown of Occult Rock band Thangorodrim gained more attention as well as a small handful of interviews for the new movement before then being met with yet another single release entitled "Chaining Ethereal Comatose" in the early months of 2019. This new track, unlike the previous, had now featured live drumming, cohesive lyric lines and a new psychedelic circulation with the addition of guitarist S.K.B (also of Occult Rock band Thangorodrim) on the guest lead guitar solo following an entrancing bass guitar lead section. Chaining Ethereal Comatose had been the first track None had recorded at District Recorders, which was notable in production and mastering.

In the most recent times another two tracks have been released - "Never Know" which featured guest appearances by John Bradford Schuler (Crepuscle, Warscythe, Nerve Exposure) on the live drumkit and Patrick Corona (Rivers Of Nihil, Cyborg Octopus) on the Saxophone solo followed by a cover of "Erase" by Horror/Hardcore Punk band Kettle Cadaver.


Today, None is preparing for his next campaign with "Interdimensional War Poetry" - the 6 track EP and the release of the music video for "No Guts No Glory".
