Killing Machine

KILLING MACHINE – the US metal band featuring ex members of Slayer, Testament ,Startovarius and Temple Of Brutality, recently relocated to Europe and have issued an update on preparations for their upcoming European debut. The band are confirmed to play several high profile shows throughout the summer and launches with two shows in France later this month as support to AC / DC.

Having had a few days to settle in to their new European surroundings, guitarist Peter Scheithauer found time to talk about the move saying “We got to our base in France about a week ago and headed straight in to rehearsals. We had a few small problems at first but it’s going really well now and we can’t wait to get out there and play some shows. Since we made the decision to fully concentrate on Killing Machine, we started getting a lot of interest from around Europe. So it made sense to set up base over here rather than going backwards and forwards across the Atlantic. We’ve got some busy times ahead and we’re really looking forward to spreading our metal around Europe.”

On the subject of their upcoming European debut Scheithauer said: “Well it’s taken two albums but we finally get the chance to show our European fans what we are all about. We’ve had many requests to come over in the past but never got round to it. But we’re finally here and what away to kick it all off – supporting AC/DC!!! We’re all hyped up and looking forward to hanging out with the European metalheads.”
