London metal thrashers Kill For Company are an up and coming band about to unveil their new EP This Sadness Lasts Forever, which is set for release this Summer. Born in 2015 the band draw influences from Testament, Megadeth, Blotted Science, Nasum, Carcass and Pantera to name a few.
Following on from their 2015 release of “Crawl” the band have stepped up their game with their latest EP whilst maintaining the integrity and style of their 2015 debut release. Acquiring the production skills of Phil Kinman of MTR Studios “This Sadness Lasts Forever” sounds great and perfectly captures the bands style and metal prowess.
Combining styles from tech death, groove and thrash metal these Londoners bring fire, aggression and tasty riffage straight to your ears and leave you wanting more. Their four track EP has a good blend of different songs each with something new to offer the listener with plenty of recognisable influences of their favourite bands.
First ear exploding track “Isolation“catches you with Quinton Lucion’s extremely speedy picking style and catchy riffs, his guitar skills are crazy good mixing fast riffs and epic melodic solos into one fined tuned machine of efficiency and virtuoso accuracy. Topped with Tom Hennessey‘s shattering vocals bringing lyrics about real world issues spat at you with another level of venomous and attitude. Blended together with the powerhouse of drummer of Daniel Danby and bassist Ben McCann. Brought altogether these elements are an exploding force of aggressive thrash with a modern day metal sound inspired by the old school of this genre.
Our favourite the title track “This Sadness Lasts Forever” grips you with an epic opening scream, finger twisting riffage and psychotic drum fills. This is like the insane love child of Slayer meets Decapitated, the breakdown is killer and this track completely slays. This is what Kill For Company does best and would definitely like to hear more of on future releases.
“One For My Enemies” is the kind of song you want to go all out and punch people in the face to, not that we’d advise or recommend doing that here at Invicta. With it’s heavy fast paced groove and stampede vocal flow this track smashes and holds nothing back at all. Which brings us to the closing track “Democracy Has Failed” with its unique rhythms, relentless attack and deep growling vocals of lyrics about a world gone to madness, reflecting today’s society and political fallacies.
This is an EP of ferocious proportions and not for the faint hearted. You’ll be headbanging along until you realise your head is no longer attached to the rest of your body.
Having also personally seen these guys in action rocking a stage there is definitely more good things to come from this London based metal crew. Expect to see them hit stages around the UK this year and take things by storm.
