Spin (Maltese band)

Spin is an industrial metal band from the Maltese Islands. The band was originally formed by Martin Ciappara and Simon Deguara in 1999 who released the first demo CD named Pead. The style started taking a more electronic and industrial form later on, with Eric Mangion joining in on samples, Richard Gatt on bass, and Josef Bajada on guitars. This latter lineup produced the next CD release entitled Cell 46 in 2002. It was reviewed by major magazines and was appreciated by the metal community in general.

Spin suffered other lineup changes and settled down in mid-2004 with Simon Deguara on vocals, Andre Spiteri on bass, Mark Zammit on drums, and Josef Bajada on guitars and sample programming. This lineup saw the production of the latest CD release self-titled Spin in 2005, recorded at Temple Studios in Malta, showcasing an ultimate timbre of industrial metal at its best.
