Francesco Demuru is a professional Rock and Metal drummer from Italy, currently based in Melbourne.
Born and raised in Sardinia (Italy), Francesco discovers his passion for drums at the age of 12 in middle school, and at the same age he receives his first drum-kit as a present from his parents, who immediately support him to play and practice.
One year later Francesco enrols to the Bateras Beat music school, which is currently the biggest private music tuition institute of Brazil and Sardinia. He is directly taught by the school Director Mr. Raphael Saini (ex- Iced Earth, Jaded Star, Chaoswave and more) using the Bateras Beat books written by Dino Verdade.
In the same years, Francesco participates to Clinics, lessons and masterclasses with : Mike Mangini, George Kollias, John Macaluso, Dino Verdade, Dom Famularo, Jason Bowld, Sergio Bellotti, Mike Mangini, Thomas Lang, Virgil Donati, Mike Johnston, Benny Greb, Jp Bouvet, Hannes Grossmann, Peter Wildoer, James Payne, Francesco Paoli and more. Francesco starts his live career on stage at the age of 15 with his first band ‘Arise The War Cry’ and records his first record ‘The Path Of Valkyries’at 16.
2 In January 2014, due to an emergency health situation of the C****e Bastards’ drummer, Francesco and his drum teacher Raphael accept a last-minute gig call and they learn 10 songs each in less than 20 hours in order to save the band’s date in Cagliari, Italy. The night turned into a success. A month later Francesco is nominated ‘Student of the Month of February’ at the Bateras Beat headquarter; in April he attends the ‘Vic Firth & Matt Greiner Play-along contest’ uploading his entry on YouTube. He joins the Italian Metalcore band Lie For A Secret and tours Sardinia and Italy with them promoting the Album ‘Extinction’. One year later he joins the band Abduction, plays the drums on the official record ‘From Uranus To Your *nus’ and tours Italy and Europe between 2015 and 2016. In May 2016 Francesco moves to Australia in order to face new music and career challenges, and joins the Post-Rock band Myriad Drone in Melbourne. From 2012 to 2016 Francis has played over 80 concerts across Italy and Europe.
