Karl Friggieri

Guitar, Bass

Karl Friggieri has been active in the Maltese metal underground scene since 1995.

Phantom Lord: (1999 – 2004)
Phantom Lord, a thrash/speed metal quintet which had some early power metal melodic influences. Playing bass guitar alongside his brother Robert on drums, Aldo Chircop and Mario Cassar on guitars and Andre’ Spiteri on vocals, Karl contributed to writing the lyrics on a number of the band’s tracks as well as lending a hand in the composition of various tracks. Unfortunately, the band’s original material from this period was only played live on a few occasions
with the 7-minute track Faded Spirit being the only track which was ever released through the band’s MySpace page
Blind Saviour: (2005 - )
A fully-fledged Power Metal band fronted by Rachel Grech on vox, Robert Friggieri on drums, Aldo Chircop and Campos Gellel on guitars. The band played quite a few gigs including a number of major Metal festivals in Malta. In 2016 the band released its debut album The Master Plan, which was soon followed by a mini-tour in the UK and Italy to promote the album. In 2018 the single Father of the Wolf, a power metal interpretation of the Amon Amarth track was recorded as a limited release on all major digital platforms. The band is currently on an indefinite hiatus. There are plans to release a more material in the near future.

Kill ’em All: (2016 – 2017)
It all started off as a one-gig project with Karl being invited to join guitarist Campos Gellel and vocalist Francesco Degabriele to play hits from the first Metallica album. Soon after Aldo Chircop on guitars and Edward Tagliaferro on drums completed the line-up. The band played a few gigs and festivals and proved to have a very decent following.

Sonic Storm: (2017 - )
The band came into being soon after Kill ‘em All called it a day. Karl recruited Frans Degabriele on guitars and vocals and Edward Tagliaferro on drums. The trio played a number of live gigs and festivals in Malta. In 2021 Paul Formosa replaced Edward on drums while a year later Sean Attard was recruited on 2 nd guitar to complete the line- up. The band’s first single Bullet Train was released in 2020, followed by a second single, Web of Corruption. If all goes to plan, the band’s debut album should be released by the end of 2023.

Void of Chaos: (2020 - )
For this death metal project Karl Friggieri recruited UK-based vocalist Chris Bone and guitarist Jorge Medina from Venezuela. A second guitarist - Artem Efimov from Ukraine recorded guitars on the first single, Feel the Rot.
