UK Industrial Metal Pioneers KILL II THIS Are Back!

The cult UK heroes finally return with new material....

Following a 21-year hiatus since their last album Mass. [Down.]-Sin (Drone.), UK industrial metal pioneers KILL II THIS return with a new album, titled Variant, which is due for release on May 10th via Revolver Records!  

KILL II THIS guitarist Mark Mynett spoke about the album title and artwork: “We originally had a much more complicated title for the album but the Variant title came about during the Covid lockdown period.  It also echoes previous KILL II THIS album titles, especially Deviate, and the roman numeral V signifies that this is the fifth album.  The artwork was created by Andy Pilkington at Very Metal Art and we are delighted with what he has come up with.  There are some really clever touches and the detail is incredible.  We’ve recorded a very strong album with Variant and it needed powerful artwork to match.”

KILL II THIS released four albums in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. Another Cross II Bare (1997) mixed by Colin Richardson, Deviate (1998) and Trinity (2000), both produced by Andy Sneap, and the aforementioned Mass. [Down.]-Sin (Drone.) in 2003.

During this period KILL II THIS toured extensively through Europe, both as headliners and as support to SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY (we fondly recall seeing them on the this tour), MEGADETH, TYPE O NEGATIVE, SOULFLY, DEVIN TOWNSEND and ANTHRAX. 

Variant was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mark Mynett, who, amongst others, has worked with My Dying Bride (including production of their latest album A Mortal Binding), Rotting Christ and Dawn Ray’d

KILL II THIS’ Variant is due for release on May 10th via Revolver Records.
