Hailing from Saint-Petersburg, Russia, hard rockers from Kill City Kills blend heavy metal and classic rock riffs inspired by the

golden era of the 80’s, with modern metal production and punches, resulting in their own melodic heavy metal style, standing somewhere in between Motley Crue and Children of Bodom, W.A.S.P and Avenged Sevenfold.

The band was formed by old friends Ellis Sylvain (vocals), Nikki Tishkov (guitars) and Andrew Sharapko (drums) back in 2017.

The idea was to make raw and outrageous riffing heavy metal with lyrics full of street romance praising rebel spirit.

In 2018 the band released their first EP “Straight from the Heart of Nowhere” which was produced by the band and mixed by mixing engineer Stacy O’Dell (Darkh, Killcode). At the same time, KCK released the music video for “Wild Brigade”.

EP was re-released a year after on Sliptrick Records in 2019. 

In 2019 the band launched the riffing competition to fill the place of the second guitarist.

That’s how KCK found a companion in the person of Roman Loshakov - talented guitarist and music producer from Saint-Petersburg. With new ally,  KCK locked itself up at the home studio to focus on research of the new sound and put their music production skill on the next level. The new line-up was tested in a string of live shows in the beginning of 2020

Out of a clear sky, KCK released the music video for “(Can You Hear) The Midnight Call” on 28.08.2020.

This track became an early bird from the album “Badlands I”, which was mixed and mastered by Cristoffer Borg (Amaranthe,

Art-Nation, Kee Marcello). On this record the band is going to show its new sound with the “take-no-prisoners” approach.

Now, please, shut the hell up and let KCK kick some ass.
