Meteors started almost Thirty years ago as a reaction against
the soft rockabilly that was popular at that time and they have now
evolved to become the acknowledged "Kings of Psychobilly".
Their audience has continually expanded, and includes not just psychobillies,
but everybody from rockabillies and punks, to bikers, and
most alternatives. They are the original creators of Psychobilly Music,
and although they have spawned hundreds of imitations, The Meteors are
proud to be the only pure Psychobilly band ever. Their songs are inspired
by their personal experiences and interests; Horror, Perversion, and
Death in general. They list their hobbies as motorbikes, Rock’n’Roll,
and burying the living; amongst their heroes are Michael Myers, Charles
Manson and Mark Chapman the man who shot John Lennon.
They have now made no less than 40 official albums, and countless singles,
not to mention dozens of compilations and re-issues. Many were made
in their own recording studio, "In Heaven” a fully working
pro studio used by 100’s of bands including some very famous household
names and lead-man Paul Fenech has also released six successful solo
albums. (They have also featured in many films and numerous TV shows)
Worldwide sales have increased steadily over the years, and they have
toured almost continuously to support these releases.
Their live show is wild and addictive, (they have done it over thousands
of times in fact this year passing their four thousand five hundredth)
and has been seen in just about every country in the world, including
Japan, several tours of America, and every major city in Europe and
Scandinavia even spending a sell out week in Israel, Everybody
is welcome at a Meteors show, and the band make a point that The Meteors
Live is a political or religious free zone. People should come to enjoy
the music, and to wreck if they are brave enough! It's wild and sweaty,
but nobody gets seriously hurt.

The Meteors Are Pure Psychobilly
Meteors have cared little for trends or fashions, which surely goes
some way in showing the reason they have been able to deliver groundbreaking
work with such consistency, ever since their debut album 'In Heaven',
to their latest crazed offering 'Hymns for The Hellbound'.
Currently enjoying phenomenal success in the United States, The Meteors
will be showing exactly why they have been described as nothing less
Under the direction of lead singer and guitarist P.Paul Fenech, The
Meteors took the basics of 1950's Rockabilly and injected it with such
‘punked up’ venom that it could only be called one thing
