After a 15-year hiatus, one of Malta’s most prominent 90s hard rock / heavy metal bands are putting the band back together. But this time, they’ve got a couple of new faces in the mix.
Lord Adder are finally reuniting and they’re doing so with new members, an upcoming show and also plans of an album in the mix.
The 90s heavy metal band rose to prominence during a time when everyone’s favourite musician could be seen sporting long hair, leather pants and bullet belts. A lot has changed since then, buzz cuts are the trend now, jeans are more comfortable and bullet belts became too uncomfortable.
But what hasn’t changed is the band’s legacy and the hype it draws for their epic comeback.
In their heyday, Lord Adder had quite the following and even opened up for legendary acts including Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Saxon and Smokie… and there’s nostalgic video footage to prove it.
Lord Adder had the privilege of opening for the legendary Black Sabbath in Gżira during their Forbidden Tour back in 1995.
They also opened for Smokie, who have since visited the island several times for a performance…
Lord Adder were naturally suited for the big stage, and they’re back once again to provide the same rock n’ roll and IDGAF vibes
“Lord Adder will be hitting the stage very soon, hopefully before the end of the year,” the band announced. “We have our original, material, we believe in it and most importantly we are loving what we are doing. Tune in to Lord Adder’s Facebook page for constantly updated news on the band and our forthcoming performances.”
The new line-up consists of original vocalist/bassist Mark Spiteri and drummer Ray Micallef along with new members guitarists Charlie Muscat and Robert Tomasuolo.
Lord Adder have also confirmed that there is a follow-up album to 1999’s ‘Site Of Evidence’ but that still seems to be miles away…
“We can’t wait to share our album but we don’t want to rush it. We want to make sure it is up to standard before we release it, in all aspects.”
