the outset in 1980 the power trio was embraced by a myriad of loyal fans all
over the world. Their first three albums; “Ready For Hell”,
“Wall Of Sound” and especially “Shockwaves”,
were unanimously lauded by aficionados and critics alike, rubberstamped heavy
metal masterpieces of the 80s. By the mid-eighties the band
played prestigious festivals, toured the whole of Europe, and sold albums from
Tokyo to Rio de Janeiro and from Moscow to New York, and just about everywhere
in between. A noteworthy climax being a tour of Poland in 1986,
where for the duration they played for captive audiences numbering no less
than 10.000 eager fans each night.
fourth album, “Fatal Attraction”, eagerly awaited by fans for
over five years, was another success. By 1991 however Grunge
music ruled the world and Killer (by then a quartet) took a
step back. Later that year founding member, guitarist/ vocalist Shorty released
a solo album entitled “Too Wild To Tame” under his last name:
Van Camp. The album sounded as if it could have been Killer,
volume IV. In May 2002, a reformed Killer were
by Doro (Warlock), Ostrogoth and Crossfire,
headlining the sold-out Mausoleum Records 20th Anniversary
Concert. The overwhelming success lead to the recording of “Broken
Silence”, an album featuring great anthem-like songs, as well as, for
the very first time: keyboards. The 2005 follow-up,
“Immortal”, once again more prominently featured Shorty’s
trademark guitar sound.
