all streaming sites.
Bursting out of Newcastle Upon Tyne, KILONOVA spit out an incendiary,
thrash-tinged sound combining the Bay-Area intensity with a tectonic modern
groove. The North East riff warriors were only born in 2018 but their second
live appearance occurred at Bloodstock Open Air Metal 2 The Masses. The band
flourished throughout the whole competition and were selected to perform at
Bloodstock 2018. KILONOVA released their debut single in the run up to
Bloodstock, and began work on their debut EP.
Throughout the start of 2019, the band supported Finnish upstarts Lost
Society, vigorously sharpened their set, and completed work on their first
record, Omnicide. Bassist, Joe Bambrick remarks about the EP: “Omnicide is a
mission statement for Kilonova. It’s a dark, raucous picture of who we are
as artists. Going into the recording process we wanted the sound to be as
true to our live energy as possible, and I think that really comes through.
It’s a dirty, chaotic sound that grabs you by the throat and forces you to
Omnicide arrives this July and it immediately lunges forward with stunning
pace, spewing out frantic drumming and hi-octane riffs to striking effect.
Ramming five full cuts of intensely contagious vocal lines, a burly rhythm
section, and high paced Kirk Hammett-esque licks, the band have produced a
blazing and potent slice of modern metal. The stage is all set for the band
to rise and break out to the nation.
