TKO | TOTAL KNOCK OUT – THE COMPLETE TKO, 5CD BOX SET Coming soon...


  • 5CD box set bringing together TKO’s three classic studio albums.
  • Plus a posthumously released second album ‘Round Two’, along with numerous rarities, alternate versions and demos.
  • And the post-TKO band Suicide Squad’s EP, on CD for the first time ever.

To many, Seattle band TKO need no introduction, a pioneering US metal outfit that came out of the gate strongly with their first album 1979's ‘Let It Roll’ establishing them as American metal leaders at least a year before the NWOBHM acts that were soon to come flooding in from the UK... and a good three years before the US power metal movement started to take hold Stateside.

Band leader Brad Sinsel led TKO through a number of line-up changes throughout the 80s and on an, at times, uneasy path to success. A trip that established them as firm cult favourites with fans; and a highly influential act with musicians as diverse as Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and numerous traditional European metal acts who cite the band as a major influence to this day.
