No Remorse Records proudly presents the third full-length of SPITFIRE!
Formed in 1984, SPITFIRE is the most legendary heavy metal band of Greece. The debut album “First Attack” (released by EMI in 1987) stands at the top of the greatest metal albums coming from the country and has built a strong following over the decades worldwide. At the same time, the band suffered a major blow when original singer Dinos Costakis was seriously injured in a car accident. SPITFIRE had everything going for them until that day and the tragic accident that forced Dinos to retire from the stage. Over the course of one night, his emotional voice became metal history before he even reached his peak. Despite adversity, SPITFIRE found the strength to go on but a few more problems rooted in the music industry led the band’s career in a dark period while they were also pushed to change the name to SPEEDFIRE for a while, releasing the live album “100% Live” in 1990.
With important line-up changes and the SPITFIRE moniker back in the mid-90s the legend was growing and the act kept performing live and released the second studio album “Die Fighting” in 2009. Over the years they have shared the stage with many bands including IRON MAIDEN, SCORPIONS, SAXON and Y&T among others, and in 2013, there was even a documentary titled “Spitfire: Back to Zero,” giving rise to memories, disagreements and conflict. The documentary directed by Vagelis Rigas was part of the 7th annual London Greek Film Festival.
In 2020-2021, the line-up of Elias Logginidis – guitars, Tassos Krokodilos – lead and backing vocals, Panos Hatziioannidis – guitars, Nikos Michalakakos – bass guitar, George Paximadis – drums, and special guest George Aspiotis on keyboards, completed the recordings of the third studio album “Denial to Fall,” produced by George Aspiotis & Spitfire.
The new SPITFIRE album is highly recommended for fans of ACCEPT, SAXON and JUDAS PRIEST.
