What’s impressive is just two years before Leto’s break into the global spotlight, Leto and his brother formed the band 30 Seconds to Mars with Leto explaining the band name “has little to do with space, the universe or anything like that. It is a name that works on several differently levels. Most importantly, it is a good representation of our sound. It’s a phrase that is lyrical, suggestive, cinemantic, and filled with immediacy. It has some sense of otherness to it.” In a bid to keep the band’s integrity, Leto refused to use his position as a Hollywood actor as a form of promotion for the band. Luckily the band’s own merits, having played numerous small American clubs and venues, quickly saw them sign with record label, Virgin Records, just a year after formation!
In two thousand and one, 30 Seconds to Mars set to releasing their eponymously titled, debut album! Enlisting the help of Grammy Award nominated producer Brian Virtue and Pink Floyd’s former producer Bob Ezrin, to co-produce the album!

Of the album Leto said “everything on this album is about real human experience. That is the single most inspiring source for us, the human struggle. Lyrically, it’s a very personal album that sometimes uses otherworldly elements or conceptual ideas to illustrate a truthful personal situation.” Drawing influence from Pink Floyd, The Cure and Depeche Mode, among many others, critic reception to the album proved positive and successful! Alternative Press gave the album four out of five stars saying 30 Seconds to Mars “are made of sterner stuff, with their prog-metal foundation enhanced by an unexpectedly powerful sense of melody”!
