We’re STOKED when bands want to use our site to debut their first ever tracks. Check out Indian thrash metal act Kill the King in the track below and in the info they submitted below:
Kill the King is the brainchild of Pune based guitarists Aditya Swaminathan (Ex Anarchy, Ex Halahkuh) and Rishin Dharap (Ephemeral, Muzak) that was born out of their mutual love for Thrash metal.
The band had just been an idea since 2016, with Swami and Rishin bouncing ideas off of each other, but in the process pooling up material worth almost an album. Finally, in October 2020, Pune based drummer Akarsh Singh (Nemophilis, Hiraeth, Beparwah, Ex- Brazen Molok, Ex- Monks inc.) and Siliguri based vocalist Pritam Goswami Adhikary (Aarlon, Xero, Ether) got on board, making the band’s lineup complete.
The band released their first single titled ‘In the name of culture’ on 16th Jan, which speaks about the atrocities and hypocrisy associated with the pseudo-interpretations of culture and is part of an album that will be released in late 2021. The theme of the album is heavily focused on the idea of questioning authority, standing up for what’s fair, and against injustice. Each song represents the portrayal of certain aspects of our country and society that need to be addressed and we feel strongly about, and the lyrics are written by Rishin.”
