White Skull is an Italian power/heavy metal band formed in 1988.[3]

The line-up of the band didn't change until 2001, when female lead singer Federica de Boni left the band, with Gustavo Gabarro becoming the new singer. Two years later, other original members Fabio Pozzato and Massimo Faccio left the band as well. In 2006 Elisa de Palma became the new singer, with the band becoming female-fronted once again. In 2010, de Boni came back in the band.

They became known in America with their 1999 release Tales from the North.[4]
