Formed by Witchcraft guitarist John Hoyles and Graveyard drummer Axel Sjöberg in 2010 and after Ann-Sofie Hoyles joined on vocals Spiders was born. Axel Sjöberg left in 2011 already to concentrate on Graveyard and new members were found to record the debut album Flash Point in 2012 and the follow up Shake Electric in 2015. With Killer Machine the bands continuous the 70s vibe that started eight years ago.
While Spiders sound more 70s than the 70s itself, the band shows with Killer Machine that they are not afraid for modern things, two of the songs on Killer Machine are co-written with Peter Kvint and that’s a well-known songwriter who worked with artists such as Britney Spears before.
The songs on Killer Machine sounds vintage but deal with modern subjects, there’s no longing back to the 70s in the lyrics and the band sounds alive and kicking. If Killer Machine was released in the 70s it would probably be classified under disco as most of the rhythms make it quite danceable. But no worries, there’s still enough to satisfy your metal heart. Check out the song Higher Spirits with it’s sinister undertone or the groovy Killer Machine.
With Killer Machine Spiders succeeded in writing an album that is an huge step forward without loosing it’s roots and the whole album sounds natural, like the band didn’t have to struggle to sound like a 70s rock band.
