They are inspired by Joy Division, Hawkwind, Motörhead, Black Sabbath, Pentagram and Saint Vitus. An emotionally thick and entirely developed atmosphere evolves from the melancholic and at the same time catchy sound. Feels like Black Sabbath jamming with Joy Division.
Though TOUCH THE SPIDER! are influenced by rather different types of music, it's difficult to pidgeonhole them.
You can literally feel the melancholy. Hearing the songs you are torn between depression and blissful happiness.
The ailing fagile vocals depict human suffering. Look out for the brink of delusion, grief, hate, agony, satanism, depression, horror, apocalypse, murder and suicide.
TOUCH THE SPIDER! formed up in August 2007 under cover of the gloomy Black Forest.
Unholy Ghost Vocals, Bass, Guitars, Perc, Keys

In order to get the straight TOUCH THE SPIDER! sound they realize everything by themselves: recording, production, mastering and layout and even the videos.
