    Info:

    An early incarnation of the band used to play instrumental jazz/blues rock
    (line up had two guitars,keyboards,bass and drums)in 1982/83,then one of the
    guitarist left after few months and the singer Antonio De Vivo
    (who was a metal dj in a local radio) joined and they changed sound and renamed as
    Metal Dust (that is also the name of one of the two songs recorded as a demo
    that year,the other was called Metal Power);soon they changed name to Mothra
    releasing in 1984 a second untitled demo (songs included were Live From
    The Space,Plays Of The Absurd,Till Death,Fuckin' Song and a new version of
    Metal Power); in November 1985 Mothra recorded this third and final demo
    that includes a new version of Till Death and three new songs releasing it
    in early 1986, it's not clear of when Mothra disbanded but rumors says about
    no later than 1987/1988. (the info in the band page on Metal Archives are incomplete
    and wrong https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Mothra/111398 )

    P.S. some of the former members some years ago reformed Mothra but only as a live
    rock/metal cover band.
