Former Kreator bassist Christian “Speesy” Giesler has a new gig. The thrash metal hero has joined the supergroup Bonded, which also features ex-Sodom guitarist Bernemann Kost.

“We’ve been talking about making music together since the “Hell comes to your town” tour in 2001/2002,” Kost explains. “It just took us a little longer to realize our plans than usual hahaha…..we were both so involved with our jobs at Kreator and Sodom that we never found the time, but we always stayed in touch over the years. If Speesy hadn’t still been with Kreator in January 2018, he would have been our first choice for Bonded, but due to the intensive Kreator tours it was out of the question. That’s why we were very happy about his collaboration on the song “Rest in Violence” together with Bobby Ellsworth. When the situation suddenly arose a few weeks ago and we broke up with our bass player, it was only logical for me to call Speesy first, and he didn’t really think long about an answer hahaha…. now we finally want to hit the gas pedal together.”

The group hasn’t announced any new music with Giesler yet, but in their social media post they wrote “more news will follow.” We’ll keep you updated with details as they become available.
