Death SS  


With a career spanning three decades, Death SS (the SS stands for mainman Steve Sylvester) is an Italian metal institution, and one of the oldest and most influential European metal bands to delve into horror and Satanic lyrical themes. Essentially a Sylvester solo group as the members have changed frequently over the years, the group has recorded steadily for years, releasing a slew of singles in addition to the EPs and albums documented here. Over the course of their career their style has touched on doom, speed, and traditional metal, and apparently industrial as well more recently.
