Lord Adder

Lord Adder made a comeback in 2019 and they haven’t looked back since. They are on a mission to inject their strong dose of heavy metal into the music scene and they’re not planning on slowing down anytime soon.

The band was one of the most followed bands in the ’90s, filling every venue they were playing at and were supporting acts to big names like Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Saxon, Girls School, and Smokie. They were the first local band to release a live album which also included a VHS of the live recording studio session which was filmed in front of an audience, making it the first of its kind during that time. The band to fans’ dismay was dismantled and all members went their separate ways and ventured onto other projects.

Fast forward to 2019 and frontman, musician, and songwriter Mark Spiteri wanted to reform the band this time with a slight change in lineup and with a heavier sound than that which they had bowed out of the scene with. Lord Adder’s lineup now features original members Mark Spiteri (Songwriter, frontman, and bass player) and Raymond Micallef (drummer) plus new members Robert Tomasuolo and Charles Muscat both on guitars.

Just before covid hit they were part of the lineup at the warm-up party for the renowned event ‘Shellshock Festival’ and more gigs were lined up for 2020/2021 however like many artists alike everything was halted and put on hold.

Frontman Mark Spiteri tells us that he used the time of the pandemic to write some of his best material yet. ‘’The pandemic gave me the time to focus more on songwriting without all the distractions and life in general getting in the way. I wrote over 16 songs and as soon as restrictions eased and we could get back to rehearsing, the songs came to life with the rest of the band’’. He goes on to tell us ‘’ We could have waited and released the albums separately but with all the doom and gloom going on the world right now we wanted to give a glimpse of hope and courage to all those listening through the best way we know how – our music’’
