THE KILL BOTM

This month our Band of The Month is a Melbourne band that has been around for a pretty long time, but still blows our minds every time we hear them play. The Kill play their own unique brand of violent grindcore that has built them a strong fanbase that can’t get enough. The band might not play a heap of shows, or release a heap of albums, but everything they do is worth going well out of your way to check out.


In the year 2000 when OPENWOUND had come to an end, Both Jay and Roby started THE KILL with UNDINISM vocalist Neil. They recorded the first demo which was released in various formats.

Demo CASSETTE through NO ESCAPE RECORDS.
