Spitfire / Speedfire

12 Jul

I still remember some nights at “Little Wing” bar at Nea Smyrni.

When Spitfire were playing,  the place was packed.

Although I wasn’t a metalhead, some of the boys were  my neighbors, so I knew them.

They became the top Greek metal band of the 80’s thanks to their well penned tracks

They were formed in 1984 and their first album was released under the title “First Attack” in 1987.

The band was basically done for good after singer Dino Kostakis was in a bad car accident which severely injured him. They came back in 1990 under the name Speedfire (for legal reasons) and released a live album called ‘100% Live’, which is regarded very highly in the Greek metal community.
The band is still around and basically solely plays live gigs, with Mark Cross on drums. (from Metal Archive )

They released a new album in 2009, titled “Die Fighting”.

You can also find them on MySpace
