Widow was formed in the winter of 2000 when guitarist Chris got together with John E. to express their vision of metal. Peter also possessed the same dark ideas and their union was inevitable. The lineup was complete to execute their brand of melodic metal!
The group is influenced by many of their own experiences, plus groups such as King Diamond, Crimson Glory, Warlord, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Yngwie Malmsteen. Widow explores the neo-classical side of heavy metal combined with their hard rocking roots. The morbid personality of each member comes together to form the unique sound of the band.
Widow’s debut album, Midnight Strikes is the beginning of the dark history of the band. The macabre songs bring to life the wicked, perverse thoughts that delight each member. On Fire is the next step in bringing this vision to life. It has taken their horrific thoughts and experiences to another level. Now the story of Widow’s Nightlife has emerged! This is a personal story of the life of the band and the experiences they have had. Take a journey with Widow through the streets of Raleigh and embrace the night!!!
The band signed with Pure Steel Records to spread this blaze around the world! The fire of Widow burns inside of you!!! We’ll see you all in the night . . .
