Biography

From the sonic frontier of Western Canada, a new band has emerged that is surprising many with a fresh new style and sound that is reminiscent of classic 80’s hard rock and metal. The band is called KILLINGER and its genesis came about when Dave Williams and Kevin Morin (lead vocalist and guitarist respectively) decided to team up to write intensively for an original project as they had extensive experience on the local hard rock scene. “We talked about combining our skills to create a concept” states Kevin. The concept was structured around key elements of 80’s rock music that would retain the melody and power which defines the genre and lends it so well to large arena performances. Unlike many new hard rock acts, the project was to feature technical expertise in the musicianship while being accessible. Rick Plester, who has worked with guitar legends Michael Schenker and George Lynch (Dokken, Lynch Mob), recorded and co-produced the debut album and is a feature guest guitar soloist as well. George Lynch is also featured as a guest artist on the CD. There is no mistaking that this is an album that has a very strong guitar foundation. Powerhouse drummer, Pete Holmes, who has played with Black ‘N Blue, Ian Gillan, Ted Nugent, Peter Gabriel and Michael Schenker Group, plays all drums on the debut disk. Chris Challice now plays drums for KILLINGER and was recruited from Motley Crue tribute outfit, Crued. Justin Craig is bassist. Multi-Juno award winner and guest artist, Bill Bourne, contributed background vocals to the self-titled KILLINGER album.
