Ascending Northern metallers KILONOVA are poised to climb the ranks with
their stunning new single & video, Immortal out now.
Formidable modern metal foursome KILONOVA were originally formed when
bassist Joe Bambrick and guitarist Jonny Sloan joined forces in 2017. They
soon laid down demo tracks, connecting with drummer Steve Rouse and vocalist
Ellen Hill, and by April 2018, the quartet had made their live debut.
Instant momentum soon followed. The band wooed audiences at Newcastle’s
Metal 2 The Masses in the Spring of 2018 and were swiftly selected to
perform at Bloodstock. KILONOVA had officially announced themselves on the
UK’s metal scene.
The rising riff slingers started 2019 with a bang by finishing off work on
their debut EP, Omnicide, before continuing their rise in support of Finnish
upstarts Lost Society during their UK tour. This was also followed up with a
series of successful tours across England and Scotland. Last Summer, the
band released their first EP, Omnicide, which received rampant critical
acclaim. Kerrang! Magazine described the record as “…hair windmilling,
neck snapping Thrash nirvana”.
Since the release of Omnicide, KILONOVA have expanded their fanbase and
reach throughout the whole of the UK. Towards the end of 2019, the thrash
metallers entered the studio once more to record their new single, Immortal.
Vocalist, Ellen Hill remarks about the track: “Immortal is about rising up
from where you came from and realising that no matter what life throws at
you, you can get through it and it will make you stronger. It’s the next
step for us as a band; we have grown a lot as musicians since ‘Omnicide’ and
we are all really proud of the single and video”.
The band have a slew of tours planned for the rest of the year and a number
of festival appearances arranged for the Summer; check their social sites
for full details. 2020 is destined to be KILONOVA’s break-out year.
