Debut full-length album by the German Heavy Metal band.
These German Metal maniacs are bringing back the glory days of 80?s Teutonic Metal with their fantastic debut album. Very cool underground stuff in style of old Accept, Sinner, Tyran Pace and Noisehunter with the vocal similar to Udo Dirkschneider, includes members of Stormwitch, Saintsbleed and Eternal Darkness.
This German band was formed out the defunct band Hot Wire who recorded a few demos and played some shows in the late 80's and very early 90's before splitting up.  Highway Killer is comprised of only one original Hot Wire member in Ralf “Metal Lion” Neumann and bunch of other veteran Metal performers.
The songwriting on this Heavy Metal album is strong with some very catchy 80's style of melodic Heavy Metal with some Hard Rock influence. Included on this album are 3 actual songs from Hot Wire's 1989 demo as well as modern versions of these songs with Highway Killer's  take on them. Some of the songs were written in late 80s, but never released! Now after 20 years here is the new and improved Highway Killer! 
Accept, Noisehunter, Gravestone, Running Wild and whatever influence you will name from German 80's Metal. Highway Killer play exactly that style and can convince with strong vocals and very fine totally 80s songs!!
CD includes three bonus tracks from Hot Wire's “Demo’89” + one hidden track!
