Red Machete were a Traditional Heavy Metal quartet formed in Detroit Michigan in the mid-1980's.
They self released two 7" singles, both in 1985.
The 1st coupled "Scream Out Loud" and "Memory", whilst the 2nd featured "Pull The Rope" and "Ain't No Mercy".
At this point, bassist Leo Whalen left the band to be replaced by Wayne King, and Darin Jordan was replaced behind the kit by Carl Toth.
Tragically, drummer Carl Toth died in 1988, and the band changed their name to MADHOUSE shortly thereafter, adding new drummer, Roy Barker.
They supported many national bands on their way through Detroit including WHITE ZOMBIE, STEPPENWOLF, BLACKFOOT, HELIX, DIRTY LOOKS etc and also played with Detroit legends like Seduce and Halloween too.
Madhouse recorded an album, "Everything Kills", in 1990, but it remained unreleased until 2007, when the band released it themselves, however it was only available through E-Bay & the band's MySpace page.
The band are still active & have retained the same line up since their inception.
