Sharp voice, screaming guitars, hammering rhythms, a stunning mixture of power and melody:
the result is a high incendiary gradation sound, coming from the heart of six musicians!
All this is White Skull!
In 1991, after the recording of their first demo-tape, the band was noticed by the audience and the Italian metal press.
In May 1994, the band released their second demo entitled Save the Planet, which received excellent reviews.
White Skull also contributed to two Heavy Metal compilation: Nightpieces 4 (January '95) and Area Sismica (June '95).
Finally, a few months later, the Italian Indie Underground Symphony gave them the chance to record their debut CD I Won't Burn Alone.
The album received a lot of positive responses from the press and local audiences and White Skull started to play in pubs, local festivals and biker meetings.
The positive feedback and the growing public interest pushed the band to write and compose new songs.
Those caught again the interest of Underground Symphony which released in March 1997 the new album Embittered.
The Embittered tour started soon after the distribution of the album and kept the band busy until 1998.
The guys played also with Overkill, at the Italian Gods Of Metal festival and in Berlin with U.D.O and DORO.
In the meantime the band kept rehearsing and wrote new songs which ultimately brought to the release of the EP Asgard and the CD Tales from the North, a concept album about the myths of the North (Vikings and Nibelungs) with Chris Boltendahl, singer of Grave Digger, as special guest.
The album was released in 1999 by Nuclear Blast worldwide.
White Skull then played in support of Grave Digger in the Excalibur Millenium 2000 Tour in Germany, Switzerland and in March 2000 in Italy.
The following album Public Glory, Secret Agony was released in August 2000 on Breaker Records (Udo Dirkschneider's record company) with worldwide distribution by Nuclear Blast.
Although the line up changed in the years between 2001 and 2010 the band released many powerful albums which got excellent reviews and public acclaims: The Dark Age, The XIII Skull, The Ring of the Ancients, Forever Fight.
December 2010: Federica Sister De Boni re-joined the Skulls and started right away working on the new songs and shows.
The reunion album titled Under This Flagwas perfectly in line with the music proposed by White Skull, sounded heavier than before, and went straight to the hearts and souls of Metal Bangers.
November 2016: Following pre-production White Skull is currently finishing their new album WILL OF THE STRONG which is going to be released June 9th, 2017.
It is the 10th album of their career.
Many shows have already been scheduled in support of the new album and the Skulls are ready to kick ass!

White Skull: never give up!!

(23 aprile 2009) I White Skull sono dei vecchi leoni del metal italiano. I più giovani non se lo ricorderanno di certo, ma dischi come "Embittered" e "I won't burn alone" irruppero...

White Skull (Tony Mad Fontò)

(12 novembre 2002) Ho spesso l'impressione che i White Skull non abbiano ancora avuto i giusti riconoscimenti che meritano. Hanno già cinque (ottimi) album alle spalle, e questo a partire dal 1995 con il...
