History & Biography
Hailing from Southern Italy, and born in late 1992 (after being called Desecration for three years), Glacial Fear quickly released a demo and a 7" EP entitled Secrets At The Steam Forest in succession. The band's first concert was Rock In Lido (in Catanzaro Lido) on 29.08.1993. These recordings showcased a young death metal band.

Gianluca Anastasi replaced Danilo Citriniti and the band introduced a keyboardist. This line-up recorded Atlasphere: The Burning Circle EP for Nosferatu Records. Three years later the band recorded Frames at its own Mediterranean Groove Sounds Studio. This CD saw release through Nocturnal Music. A tour was followed by the introduction of Enzo Rotondaro and shortly thereafter the band lost Salvatore Mancuso.

The new line-up entered Ultrasound Studio and recorded Fetish Parade at the end of 1999. This album featured singer Nicola Bavaro formerly of Cruentus and Schizo. The album is released in mid-2000 and emphasized the band's 'cyber-metal' style. At this point the band further lost founding member Rizzuto. Equilibrium Part 1 and Part 2 were independent releases in 2009 and 2013. Unreleased, Live And Rare was a collection of demo and live material and issued independently in 2017. The band uploaded a video called Frost independently in 2020.

Mole is a producer and engineer of music in Italy.


Anyone familiar with or roaming through the catacombs of the underground has undoubtedly come across the name Glacial Fear from Italy at some juncture. Having released material for more than five years now, the Italian trio is gearing up for the launch of its second full length via this little three track teaser. The three tracks Space 1999, Electronic N-ice Eyes and Misanthropic Hacker have an evidently cyber feel to them, something which the music substantiates. GF weave intricate slow/fast and eerie/noisy fabrics into their sound, thus reproducing what can be accurately described as a modern sounding version of metal all the way. The vocals are gruff (very) and the music begs captured attention, and so GF is a little more than your average serving of metal band 1999. Via Conti di Loritello 13 str.
