History: 1995 – Currently
Style: Gothic/Black Metal
Black Widows has been over ten years fighting to gain a spot in the scene. With a style marked by the combination of gothic and black metal, it has been the victim of many lineup changes.
The worst moment for the band was when the drummer Carla Marques died suddenly in 1999. Black Widows were about to give up, but eventually continued their way.
Because of their commitment, they got contracted by the Portuguese label Recital Records in 2000, with whom they recorded two years after their first and only LP so far, “Sweet … The Hell”. Six years had passed since their first demo, recorded in five hours.
In “Sweet … The Hell”, Gunter Theys, from Ancient Rites, lends his vocals on “Life’s wish” and “Awaken”.
