Arachnes (1987-present) is a Power Metal band from Milan, Lombardy, Italy.


rachnes would first hit the market in 1987 with their first album, Labrynth, but at that time they went under the moniker Firehouse. In 1997 with the release of a min-CD Metamorphosis, on 'Underground Symphony' with illustration by Spanish artist Luis Royo and the previously released new album on the Italian 'Lucretia' label, The Goddess Temple, that they assumed their present name, Arachnes. But their true revolution would not happen until Parallel Worlds was published on 'Scarlet'. With the inspiration of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Van Halen, Toto, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Jethro Tull, Yes, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Dream Theater, Stratovarius and Bartok, the Caruso Brothers (Enzo on vocals and Franco on guitar) would create their on-going unique sound both interesting and new at the same time with the assistance of Massimo Clementi (bass) and Jaco (drums).

The 3rd album Apocalypse was the first concept album written by the band. The sound was even more mature and offered the same techniques, both in melody and aggression. The Caruso brothers completed the production themselves by both recording and mixing. The album also got enthusiastic feedback in Japan where the 'Avalon/Marquee' label released the album with a bonus track titled Epilogue. This album saw Arachnes continue to increase their sales and positive reviews.
