Craving terror was founded in Padua in 2009 by Francesco (guitar) and Mattia (voice) with the aim to play a kind of Cannibal Corpse-inspired death metal. The original line up was completed by Gaetano (guitar), Marcello (bass) and Enrico (drums). After the release of their first demo "Fracture" they immediately decided to change their sound, mixing their raw death metal with new influences, mainly hardcore and techno. So in according to this need Paolo joined Craving Terror as samplerist.
One year of strong live activity passed for the six, and then came the deal with the local label Jetglow Recordings, with which they released the single "Get Out From Me" featuring the cover of "Are you gonna be my girl" by Jet. After the release Craving Terror started to work hard on their sound, focusing on obtaining the perfect mix between brutality and massive electronic inserts, in a blend of death metal, hardcore, techno, and contaminations from hard rock to hip hop.
This evolution brought the guys to give birth to the 12 tracks of their first lp "Colony Collapse Disorder", highly acclaimed by both specialized press and webzines, which they supported with a strong live activity. In over a year they played several times in clubs all over North Italy, supporting some of the most famous local deathcore bands and gaining the fame to be one of the most exciting, high-impact live act on the scene. Recently Francesco left the band, and the guys decided to focus on the electronic side even more, keeping only one guitarist...currently they are writing new stuff under Jetglow Recordings with the brand new line up and still going on with the live activity.
