Godyva was formed in Bari, Italy, in January 2000. In September 2002 the band recorded their first EP 'Advent' and soon began performing numerous live shows in the South of Italy throughout 2002 and 2003, including festivals such as The God Bless the Metal Festival, Rock Targato Italia, Gothic Rave (with Theatres des Vampires and others) and Harder Fest (with Panic Cell and others).
In the summer of 2005, the American label SorceryStudios/Razar Ice Records signed the band for a two album deal.
‘In Good And Evil’, Godyva’s debut album, was released in 2006, giving the band a big exposure both in the press (with features in all the relevant metal magazines) and in terms of their live activity (including an appearance at Total Metal Festival with Dark Funeral and Rage among others).
With a renovated line-up, Godyva recorded their sophomore album ‘Planetarium’, which was released in 2008. More shows in Italy and many countries in Europe followed, including appearances at Prestenice Open Air Music Fest (with The Rasmus among others) and Metal Female Voices Fest in Belgium (with Arch Enemy, Tristania and Epica among others).
In June 2012 the band entered the studio to record the new album ‘Alien Heart’, which will be released March 11th, 2013 on Southern Brigade Records and marketed and distributed by Scarlet Records.
