Elisa "Over" De Palma, after the split from White Skull
(2007-2010, album “Forever Fight”), starts searching for
musicians in order to found her own band, called SPIDKILZ, a heavy/thrash
metal project she was already thinking about since some time.
At the end of August all the members have joined the band and composition
of the new songs begin, starting from some riffs and raw songs Elisa
had already written.
In January 2011 the band enters the rehearsal room to put the finishing
touches to the first 5 songs which will form the first demo. In April
Spidkilz quickly records the EP "The Ultra Demo" in 5 days:
a demo CD with 5 tracks to present the musical project, and the CD
gets published on May, 4th.
During the same month the band starts the live shows, also keeping
the composition of the new songs for the next album.
On September 2011 the french label INFERNÖ RECORDS re-releases
“THE ULTRA DEMO” on pro-cassette format, limited to 100
copies for die-hard metal maniacs, actually sold out. Later, the cilean
label CANOMETAL represses the demo in tape format, and you can still
find it writing directly to the label.
At the beginning of 2012, a couple of line-up changes (guitar and
bass) become necessary, and after that, the band finishes the composition
of the last songs which will form its first full length Album ("Balance
Of Terror"), recorded in November at Dracma Studios in Turin,
and released in February 2013, pressed by the italian label L.A. RIOT
SURVIVOR REC and lately reprinted twice.
The band keeps playing live gigs to promote the new album, playing
in Italy and Europe (France, The Netherlands, Germany).
SPIDKILZ is actually working on the second Album, and already playing
live one of the new songs: "Arachne".
October 2018: Drummer
Mattia moves to a distant city and cannot keep the work with SPIDKILZ,
also due to many other projects and activities. After several months
of researches, the band can finally announce the new drummer: Riccardo
to the old school metal \m/
