Origin: Belgium

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. They were one of the first signings of the Mausoleum record label, in fact the label was founded by managers of the group. 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 before breaking up again. Finally, more than a decade later, leader Shorty recruited a new lineup and have released two albums, most recently Immortal in 2005.
