Death SS


Death SS (“SS” stands for Steve Sylvester, the band leader) is an Italian rock band founded in 1977 by Sylvester himself, who wanted his band to house in itself all his interests – occultism, horror movies, erotic comic books, and rock music – in an original and local way.

The singer, adolescent at the time, wanted to visually “glamorize” five typical horror characters: the Vampire (singer), the Mummy (bass), the Wolfman (drums), the Zombie (guitar), and The Phantom of the Opera (keyboards). The idea was to give them the iconoclastic energy typical of punk, growing up at the time, taking its most extreme and shocking ideological aspects, and developing them in music in a heavy manner.

The transgressive live-shows of the band aroused a great interest in the static national music scene, and they immediately became a “cult-band”.

In September 2018 their last work has been released: “Rock’N’Roll Armageddon”, the cover of which has been designed by Alex Horley, who already worked on covers for Rob Zombie, Gene Simmons, and DC Comics.
