Ektomorf is the brainchild of Zoltán Farkas who founded the band in 1993. Farkas and Ektomorf didn't only sail on the sunny side of life. The band had to face prejudices and their music was partly described as a copycat of Brazilian thrash pioneers Sepultura and later on Soulfly.
We know nothing of the origins, youth and education of Marbriano de Orto (c. 1460-1529) other than that he was the illegitimate son of a priest. His surname is probably that of his mother, Dujardin, and he was trained as a chorister somewhere in the diocese of Doornik/Tournai, in present-day Belgium. The fact that the Pope granted de Orto a benefice in 1486 which secured him a lifelong income from the diocese seems to confirm his close relationship to it from the outset of his career.
