Johan Van Roy, Suicide Commando's only member, began experimenting with music in 1986. Three years later, he released his first tape under the moniker Suicide Commando, and made an appearance on the vinyl compilation, Electric. As Van Roy continued self-releasing tapes, he landed more compilation appearances on Rotation II and Induktion, Varianz und Deren Folgen, both released by Kugelblitz records.
1994 finally saw Suicide Commando's first CD, Critical Stage, released on the German label Off-Beat. Shortly after in 1995, Suicide Commando released Stored Images, which contains to date one of van Roy's most popular songs, See You in Hell.
1996 was the ten-year anniversary of Suicide Commando, and with it came the release Contamination, as well as the limited boxed version, which contained a bonus 3" compact disc. Contamination was released a year later in North America by the now defunct Electronic Death Trip records.
In 1998, Suicide Commando released the album Construct-Destruct and its sister release, Reconstruction, the former of which was picked up by Possessive Blindfold Records for distribution in North America with bonus tracks. The next Suicide Commando album, Chromdioxyde, reached number 7 on the Deutsche Alternative Charts.
Van Roy was one of the founders of the Dependent Records label in 1999. It was on this new label that Suicide Commando's next releases, two singles and one EP: Hellraiser, Comatose Delusion, and Love Breeds Suicide, accompanied Suicide Commando's 2000 release, Mindstrip, reached the number one spot on the Deutsche Alternative Charts. It was at this time that Metropolis Records began releasing Suicide Commando in North America.
For Suicide Commando's next release, Axis of Evil, a special edition double single called Face of Death was released beforehand, selling out in two days. The regular edition of the single continues to sell, and Axis of Evil was voted album of the year (2003) by the Deutsche Alternative Charts. Later, Suicide Commando released another limited edition double single, Cause of Death: Suicide + One Nation under God.
In 2006, Suicide Commando released the album Bind, Torture, Kill, featuring the single "Godsend".
In 2007, Suicide Commando will release a special 2CD,DVD release celebrating 20 years of Suicide Commando. The album will be called X20.

Yes, get your old turntable from under its dust because SUICIDE COMMANDO goes vinyl !
On July 31st. SUICIDE COMMANDO finally will return with brandnew material in the form of a strictly limited (to 500 copies !) red coloured vinyl featuring 2 new songs called "until we die" and "severed head", going back to Johan's KLINIKal roots.
Make sure to order your copy soon at the Out Of Line online shop OR at our own SUICIDE COMMANDO mail order shop as this one probably will sell out really fast.

SUICIDE COMMANDO VS PSYCLON NINE
It hasn't been a secret that both SUICIDE COMMANDO and the US PSYCLON NINE share a lot of mutual respect for eachother, it actually was SUICIDE COMMANDO who got Nero and C° into starting PSYCLON NINE several years back.
Now their mutual respect and support will be immortalized on the forthcoming PSYCLON NINE album "we the fallen" as Johan aka SUICIDE COMMANDO will be one of the guest vocalists on the opening track "Soulles (the Makers Reflection)" from their new album.
Other guest vocalists that will appear on this song are for example Gary Zon from Dismantled, Jason C. Miller from Godhead etc ...
PSYCLON NINE are in the studio right now putting the last touch on "we the fallen", so expect it pretty soon now !
Other collaborations between both bands are already in planning, so be prepared !
