What I love about most of the new music coming out is that it’s purpose driven. What I mean by that is that more and more the music and lyrics are telling a story (and more than just “oh I love her”). In a world that is trill dominated by fluff one can take solace in KillSET. This is a band on a mission and the mission is you. KillSET is poised to take the nu-music scene to the next level with music from the heart and mind. Their songs are crafted, not manufactured. Check out our First Listen feature on them and you will hear what I mean. And check out the interview as I talk with the whole band!
KillSET is a new project rising from the soiled ashes of other musical endeavors. KillSET was formed by taking an experienced, professional, well-oiled, digital grunge nu metal machine and adding the missing ingredient, an explosive, highly ignited, charismatic front man. Now being undeniably accomplished in all facets of music ranging from creativity to musicianship to originality, KillSET is poised to erupt & transform the music scene into a chaotic aftermath.
The band was created when former ARCM members, James “Jas” Dillon (Drums), Mark Baker (Bass), and Dave Comer (Guitars), combined forces with new singer Luca (Choleric). Instantly, there was an addictive atmosphere in the writing process that was undeniable. With an anything goes attitude, the contributions and writing styles of each member seemed to perfectly complement one another’s individual uniqueness, to create a sound that beautifully kills. KillSET then joined forces with renowned producer, Eddie Wohl (Fuel, Smile Empty Soul, Anthrax, Ill Nino) and completed their debut E.P. which is set to make the masses recognize the combined ferocity and simple beauty that is KillSET!
