Towards the end of the 20th Century, heavy metal in The US seemed to be in a decline. Still there were countless bands across the country producing quality work. However due to the changing landscape by mainly the internet revolution; many of the bands of the 1990s would be lost despite all of their best DIY efforts. There was a new frontier being discovered and many did what they could to survive into the next millennium, but sadly they would disappear from what “underground” scene there was at the time. Now in recent years the metal community around the world is starting to look into this seemingly lost period in US metal history.

Little is known about this mysterious band that in the mid-'90s emerged on to the scene under the name HOLY MOSES and issued two self-released albums, Latitude Zero (1995) and Rock N Roll Forever (1996) before changing their name to KILLER KHAN. They would go on to release the third album, Kill Devil Hills, in 1999 and re-release Rock N Roll Forever in 2001 under the new moniker.

BraveWords scribe and rock author Martin Popoff referred to KILLER KHAN as having, "a weird sound, a great sound, something like old SAVATAGE crossed with CATHEDRAL with a bunch of weirdo indie moves. It’s so cool that metal freaks like this exist and just crank the stuff."

After eight years of seeking out the band and the man known as KILLER KHAN (aka Killian Khan), Heaven And Hell Records have located him tucked away deep in the mountains of Western North Carolina. There he has been for more than a decade, quietly waiting for the right time to resurface onto the underground scene.

In June of this year a reissue of KILLER KHAN’s debut Kill Devil Hills is scheduled for release. The reissue will include new artwork, bonus tracks, and will be re-mastered by Jamie King at The Basement Studios. This CD release will be limited to 500 copies.

  • "Computer Icon"
