Paul Speckmann

Paul Speckmann

Real/full name:
Paul Speckmann
57 (born Sep 28th, 1963)
Place of origin:
United States (Chicago, Illinois)


Paul Speckmann is an American bassist and vocalist from Chicago, Illinois. He currently lives in Uherské Hradiště, Czech Republic.

His first band was War Cry, founded in 1982. In 1983 he started Master as a thrash metal band. Due to internal problems it was put on hold and Speckmann started another band, called Death Strike for which he recorded one demo, which was later released on Nuclear ...


Paul auditioned twice for the legendary Chicago band Trouble, and was accepted at the second audition. However, he turned it down as he felt Master would be bigger.

During the late '80s, while Abomination and Generation Waste were practicing at the same studio, Paul, Ted Domurat, and Aaron started a punk/thrash metal band for fun.
