Biography

There is more than one band named Killers. (This is not “The Killers”)

1. Killers are a French speed metal band currently based in Bardos, France. Founded in 1984 by rhythm guitarist Bruno Dolheguy (also taking on vocals in 1989, while being the only member to have remained with the band throughout its career), Killers are one of the few French speed metal bands from the 1980s which remain active today.

* Carlo Di Matteo: Drums


2. Killers is a heavy metal band founded in 1990 by heavy metal vocalist Paul Di’anno (previously of Iron Maiden and Battlezone). Steve Hopgood, who previously played drums in Battlezone with Paul called him and said “Let’s get something together”. Paul was contacted and he flew over to New York where they formed a band along with Cliff Evans (guitar).

A few days later, they had hired John Gallagher (from Raven) to play bass on a short-term basis and also Ray De Tone (from the United States) joined to play second guitar.

Within a few days, a live album called “South American Assault Live” was recorded. It mostly featured Iron Maiden and Battlezone tracks, also with other covers, such as “We Will Rock You” and “Smoke on the Water”.

This was recorded primarily for the South American market, as a South American “money guy” was involved who was interested in backing a tour in the region. “Recorded in Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela in Summer of 1993” is splashed on the back cover.
