We caught up with the boys from Kinasis after their set on the Hobgoblin New Blood Stage at Bloodstock 2018, the New Blood Stage offered a huge variety of talent from across the UK and beyond, so it was good to chat with Kinasis to see how they fitted into the Bloodstock experience and see where this journey will take them.
Kinasis, a multi faceted, technical, extreme-metal band from the south-west of the UK, re-defining the rule book of what is possible in their passionate, brutal and often haunting compositions.
The band are a collective of talented musical explorers, unbound by any single metal sub-genre, avoiding all trends and perceived scene ‘rules’. Often walking the fine line between noise and music, chaos and order; Kinasis mix death metal, thrash and grind-core influences with more contemporary metal to create a unique, uncompromising brand of extreme metal which transcends any current metal subgenre/classification and appeals to a wide range of metal fans. A blend of brutality and melody, technicality and groove; Kinasis songs are almost exclusively in oddtime and contain complex and intricate arrangements. Mosh-pit friendly hooks abound throughout, occasional blast beats add to the sheer brutality of it all. The band’s ferociously tight delivery makes them a force to be reckoned with.
Kinasis have been refining their craft, honing their stage skills by gigging sporadically throughout the UK since March 2010. Their debut 3 track demo e.p. was self released the same year. The demo was well received and gained airplay on several internet and regional UK radio stations. The demo scored 11 out of 13 in an online review by www.roomthirteen.com.
A video for the track ‘In Vivo’ was released in February 2012.
In recent years Kinasis have shared a stage with many bands on the UK underground circuit and international artists, including the likes of Sepultura, Malefice, Flayed Disciple, Sworn Amongst, Abadden and Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster to name but a few. The band also played several dates in Italy and the UK with upcoming Italian guitar virtuoso Gianluca Ferro and his band S.H.I.N.E
Their debut album, mixed and mastered by Justin Hill (Fortress Studios/SikTh) is completed and a teaser can be found here:-
Kinasis do not know the meaning of the word failure and will do whatever it takes, overcoming all odds to succeed.
Now they are looking to take the next step and are currently seeking opportunities for both release and touring to gain a wider acceptance and throw down the gauntlet to the world, aiming to prove that the UK is still the best country in the world for inspirational, dynamic, visceral music.
