Killer  


Killer was an 80's Belgian trio (expanding to a quartet later in their career) with rather amusing names and a style resembling a poor man's Motorhead. The band's managers founded the Mausoleum record label and thus Killer was one of the label's first signings. They initially disbanded around 1985 after three albums (plus a live album that was never released due to Mausoleum's financial problems at the time), then reformed in 1990 for Fatal Attraction, and since then the band has broken up and reformed several times with new lineups surrounding leader Shorty.
