The band – who consist of Pete ‘Spider’ Spiby (vocals and guitar), Ozzy ‘Owl’ Lister (guitar) Mark ‘Dark Shark’ Thomas (guitar) Tiger Si (drums) and Adam ‘the Fox’ Irwin (bass) have spent the last two years playing for audiences across the UK and main land Europe.
With friends such as Airbourne, Supersuckers, the Datsuns, Stone Godsand Wildhearts among others plus the wowing of festival crowds including Download, Sonipshere, High Voltage, Bloodstock and iTunes Festivals in the UK alone.
iTunes, of course, was very special as the band were chosen by none other than Ozzy Osbourne to open for him at the Roundhouse. Ozzy was so impressed he then offered the Spiders a slot on the UK leg of Ozzfest at the O2 Arena.
With acclaimed EP’s No Goats In The Omen and Cinco Hombres (Diez Cojones) preceding the album release they’ve been winning a lot of friends and influencing a lot of people in the build up to the album release, with features and sterling reviews across the board. But don’t take our word for it...
"Destined to become one of 2011's must haves" said Classic Rock Magazine."A tireless masterpiece that rocks from front to back. 9/10" say Metal Hammer. "'Black Spiders are pure genius" said the one and only Duff McKaganoff Guns N Roses. "5/5 said Big Cheese, "the true sound of rock n' roll in 2011". Rock Sound Magazine proclaimed "their apocalyptic three-man axe assault is aweinspiring". Kerrang! even gave its readers a fright with a poster and shouted about how "this Sheffield based quintet have managed to harness the powers of Angus Young and priapic death punks Turbonegro and distill it into a brew fit for Odin himself".
