Metal Supergroup Killing Machine Recruit Evergrey's Jari Kainulainen

03/15/2010
.
Killing Machine have revealed that former Stratovarius and current Evergrey bass guitarist Jari Kainulainen will be joining the band. Jari will continue with his position in Evergrey, but the chance to challenge himself in a different field with Killing Machine was an opportunity he did not want to miss.

Commenting on joining the band Jari Kainulainen said "When Peter (Scheithauer) contacted me and asked me to join Killing Machine as replacement for David Ellefson, I had to check it out. And after listening to a few songs I knew straight away that this is something I definitely wanted to be a part of. I especially fell in love with the fast and blasting bass lines and kick ass guitar riffs., so it was an easy decision for me. I'm really looking forward to start playing with these guys."

On welcoming Jari to the band, guitarist Peter Scheithauer said: "First off, I am so thrilled that I can finally announce Jari Kainulainen as the new bass player!!! Once I was done with the demos it was time to think about getting the band together. I wanted people who were ready to tour - no egos. Plus returning to Europe I wanted someone we can hang with who was first and foremost a true metalhead. Csaba (Zvekan) and Jon (Dette) were already in and I knew David (Ellefson) was out of the question for the obvious reasons. I always loved Jari's playing, I saw him several time with Stratovarius and love Evergrey. If someone can play crazy bass lines and be creative it's him. And besides being an outstanding musician he is a very cool guy and at the end that's what really matters."

The completed Killing Machine line up is Csaba Zvekan - Vocals, Peter Scheithauer (Temple Of Brutality / Belladonna) - Guitar, Jari Kainulainen (Evergrey / Stratovarius) - Bass Guitar, Jon Dette (Testament / SLAYER) - Drums.

KILLING MACHINE will re -locate to Europe for a series of summer shows and recording of the new album. The band have already confirmed an appearance at Germany's Headbangers Open Air Festival on 29th July 2010.
