TRICK OR TREAT are a crazy bunch of musicians: they are one tight power metal band and they sure deliver the goods on stage, but they also like to share some fun with their audience – that’s why everybody loves them.
Formed back in 2002 by lead guitarist Luca Cabri and initially performing as a tribute to Helloween, they quickly got very popular and played the most renown live clubs around Italy: after a couple of intense years on the stage, they recorded the “Like Donald Duck” 4-piece demo and signed a deal with Valery Records for their first full-length, named “Evil Needs Candy Too”, which came out in 2006. The debut got a terrific response and put TRICK OR TREAT back on the road for the following two years, playing over 100 gigs in Europe and U.S.A.
Nevertheless, the guys kept writing more songs and in 2009 they gave birth to their second LP, called “Tin Soldiers”, which features Michael Kiske (Helloween, Place Vendôme) on two songs and Michele Luppi (Vision Divine, Killing Touch) on another one: as expected, the record receives a brilliant feedback on the scene (for instance, it breaks on the Japanese charts at the 29th place) and the band plays some top festivals, like the Agglutination, the Palasharp I-Metal Fest and the Italian Gods Of Metal. Last but absolutely not least, TRICK OR TREAT have also been recently selected as opener band for Helloween’s “The 7 Sinners World Tour 2010/11” together with special guest Stratovarius.
In 2012, Trick or Treat come back with a new album, a concept inspired by Richard Adams' novel “Watership Down”, which even features Andre Matos on one track. The album’s called “Rabbits’ Hill pt.1”.
After many gigs and festivals to promote the new album, in 2014 Trick or Treat join Sonata Arctica's “Pariah’s child” tour for 21 gigs all over Europe.
In October 2014 Luca Cabri, one of the founders, leaves the band due to personal reasons, so Luca Venturelli , talented guitarist from Mad Maze, joins the band.
In April 2015 Trick or Treat enter at Domination Studio, with Simone Mularoni as sound engineer, to record “Rabbits’ Hill pt.2” the second part of the “Watership Down” novel. The album is out on July the 8th 2016 via Frontiers Records, the new band's label.
