Godiva is one of the established bands of the Portuguese Symphonic Death Metal scene.
The quintet formed, in 1999 Famalicão, released their first recording as a promotional CD entitled Tales to be Untold (2000). Followed by the EP Traces of Irony (2002) recorded at Rec n’Roll Studios and produced by Rui Danim and Luís Barros (Tarântula). This EP was a significant mark in the band’s affirmation on the scene. In 2007, Spiral emerges recorded at Ultrasound Studios and produced by Daniel Cardoso (Anathema) and, like its predecessor, played an important role in the band’s consolidation in the Portuguese metal scene, gathering excellent reviews, national and international.
After an interregnum of 11 years, Godiva returns to the stage, debuting their new line-up and sound with a memorable concert at Vagos Metal Fest, accompanied by an orchestra of about 50 musicians and a sold out concert at Hard Rock Café Porto.
This year we were lucky, even with COVID-19 restrictions, enough to give two concerts this summer, both sold out: one in Lisbon, at RCA Club in a special edition of Laurus Nobilis Music Fest and recently on the latest edition of Riverstone Fest.
