Biography

Godyva was formed in Bari, Italy in January, 2000. The original line-up has changed little from that of the present one, included vocalist Lady Godyva, guitarist Frahn, former drummer of ‘Carpe Diem’ Enyo and bassist Nick Barah of ‘Vespertilia’.

Soon after forming, the four founding members decided to devote themselves to the creation of completely original material. Unfortunately, their orginal plans were not to be, as in the summer of 2000 bassist Nick Barah had decided to move on and the band was left without a bassist. The band continued in writing mode while continuing the search for a new bassist.

Unable to find a qualified bassist able to fit into the bands unique chemistry, they continued moving forward deciding to work with a hired gun that would not be a permanent member but would allow them to begin performing live and to begin recording the demos for their first album. The hired gun was found in Nicola Masi (drummer for That’s all Folks!).

In May, 2001 Keyboardist Botys Beezart joined the band, which was a major turning point in Godyva’s sound. In September, 2002 the band recorded their first collection of songs in an EP entitled ‘Advent’. The band soon began performing numerous live shows in the South of Italy throughout 2002 & 2003, they also took part in ‘The God Bless the Metal’ Festival in the summer of 2003.

Towards the end of 2003 the collaboration with Nicola Masi had come to an end and in January, 2004 the band found a new bassist, Hyrha, he blended perfectly with the rest of the band and was added as a permanent member and was found to be an important contributor to the bands musical direction.
