Guitarist Kurt Colfelt (a.k.a. Kurt Kilfelt; ex-AGENT STEEL) of the reformed Seattle-based speed metal band HOLY TERROR has sent the following message to BLABBERMOUTH.NET regarding the group's recent vocalist search:
"So the search for the singer has ended as quickly as it began. Man, we got responses from all over the place. It was kinda flattering that there's still support for the band. But Jeff's [Matz, bass; ZEKE] Dad hooked us up with a singer. It's sorta crazy — he also lives right down the street. His name is Aaron Redbird. The band sounds fucking nuts. We will see you all on the road…"
As previously reported, HOLY TERROR have set "Stillborn" as the title of their upcoming CD box set, tentatively due in early 2006 on Candlelight Records. The set will feature never-before-heard remixes, outtakes, live stuff and video footage.
In addition to Colfelt, Matz and Redbird, the group's current lineup includes Joe Mitchell (drums) and Matt Fox (guitar, ex-BITTER END). "We will be recording with legendary [producer] Jack Endino begining in late January," Kilfelt told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "Hopefully the band will be on tour by summer 2006. New merch will be available in the coming months at HolyTerrorSpeedMetal.com."
HOLY TERROR were formed in the mid-1980s by Kilfelt and ex-DARK ANGEL drummer Jack Schwarz, who left before the release of the band's first album, 1987's "Terror and Submission". A follow-up effort, "Mind Wars", was issued in 1988.
