Eldritch were formed in 1991 from the ashes of Italian band, Zeus, who played US-oriented hard rock. Under the new moniker, the four musicians Terence Holler, Eugene Simone, Adriano Dal Canto and Martin Kyhn began to write more complex compositions, enhancing them with modern progressive metal inserts and perfecting their already impressive technical abilities.
In September 1994 the five musicians locked themselves into the Officina Studio to record their debut album Seeds Of Rage, which was released on the German label Inside Out Music in May 1995. Their second album, Headquake, which was released in March 1997, had the fans and the media falling over themselves with praise. From then, a lot of albums have been released, increasing the skills of the Italian band.
