ASSASSIN Are Ready To 'Go Fight Kill'

ASSASSIN, the reunited German thrash act that released a couple of promising albums in the late '80s via the SPV label (1987's "The Upcoming Terror" and 1988's "Interstellar Experience"), have posted the following message to their official web site:

"First of all the whole band wanna thank all the crazy headbangers who saw our recent shows in Duesseldorf and Wacken.

"It was awesome for us to play in front of so loyal fans who ALL partied, slammed and of course banged during the whole show. We had so much fun!

"We really wanna tell you guys the whole story from our point of view:

"We love metal and it took a lot of guts to reform ASSASSIN again while spending lots of time and money in order to finally succeed the whole reunion.

"Since 2001 we practice constantly and since over a year with the present line up we rehearsal four times a week. So far we are unsigned and all expenses (equipment, transport, rehearsal room, merchandise, etc.) we all pay by ourselves. Even the manager and the crew are working for [idealisric] point of reasons and so far earned no single €.

"Of course the Wacken money will be reinvested into studio costs for a demo and the monthly payments for the rehearsal room.

"We furthermore will continue our work with new songs for a third album and as well continue to support crazy events like the recent 'Death Parade' where we had a great session! (for free of course) and partied alongside the normal metal fans which we are ourselves anyway.

"For a third album we do take our time cause, since we do not wanna hurry up with some cheap and cheesy riffs put together within a month or so. So far we have 5 new tracks and all are very thrashy ASSASSIN-style killer songs. We, the band as well as the fans who listened to them all love them and stand 100% behind them. Be aware!!!! We are ASSASSIN and go fight kill all fucking rip-offs.

"We plan to sign in the next few month with a motivated and 100% supporting label. In November/December we plan to record the third CD which should then be released in spring 2004.

"In May-June we hope that we can organize a tour and in summer 2004 we plan to take part in other open air festivals.

"One more time a big thanx to all of you who were at the reunion shows, all ASSASSIN fans who could not join, our manager Rudy, our crew Frank, Hand, Saki, Stefan & Andreas as well as our girls who all worked hard under super stress!

"Watch out & Achtung: ASSASSIN and the AGD is on the move to GO FIGHT KILL!!!

"ASSASSIN Robert, Steifff, Dinko, Scholli & Achim"
