Mert Göçay is the founder member of the band traveled to Germany in Summer 2007. The purpose of the travel is to meet Frank Bornemann who is founder of the German progressive rock giant Eloy. A true legend progressive rock frontier and Mert Göçay met in Hannover/Germany at Horus Studios which Eloy's album recorded and they became close friend. That significant detail driving Nemrud's sound from millenium to 70's. Nemrud have undergone several personnel changes throughout the first stages but since 2010 the band consist of four members - Mert Göçay (vocal,guitar), Mert Topel (keyboards), Aycan Sarı (Bass), Mert Alkaya (drums). They quickly evolved into a progressive rock band with the incorporation of complex song structures and elaborate instrumentation during the rehearsal period. The band signed contract with Musea Records in 2009, which is French record label dedicated to progressive rock and both albums released by them, distributed to various countries.
Inspiration and Influences
Nemrud has taken influence from a wide range of music, ranging from Classical music to mainstream rock and jazz. The band's sound is reflecting the golden 70s era and made up of reminiscences to Pink Floyd, Yes, Camel, King Crimson, Eloy and other bands with psychedelic and symphonic leanings outside of their country. In local musical influences are Barış Manço, Cem Karaca, Moğollar and Hardal. 
- Their first work Journey of The Shaman is marking by the use of Shamanic lyrics and epic story in three parts. These 3 songs in the album telling the story of the pysical and spiritual journey of "Mitos" , a Shaman living in the steps of Central Asia, upon the message he received from the other world. These three songs represent the three kingdoms(worlds) in Shamanism belief.
- Second album Ritual is about schizoid person who tries to face himself in the dreams. The main metaphor is rebirth of the consciousness of human, who has difficult to get out from his own dreams.
