GENERATION KILL are the final answer to all that tedious talk about a comeback of Thrash Metal. This is not just another Thrash Band. Generation Kill incorporates many different styles of music, which sets this band apart from the rest. All five members have diverse musical backgrounds, which define and allow GENERATION KILL to be a band with no limitations.
Their highly acclaimed on Season of Mist released debut album "Red, White and Blood" incorporated already everything any aficionado of the genre might have wished to hear for the last decade: crunchy riffing, capturing melodies, killer solos and exactly the right dose of unashamed aggression that propelled bands like METALLICA, ANTHRAX, MEGADETH, TESTAMENT and many others to the forefront of extreme Metal music in the 80's. Yet GENERATION KILL do neither serve a dusty trip into nostalgia, nor is this a bunch of kids desperately trying to recreate what they never experienced.
This should come as no surprise as GENERATION KILL was formed by current EXODUS frontman Rob Dukes and Rob Moschetti (ex-PRO-PAIN, M.O.D.) who draw deeply from their musical roots that show through openly. Lead Guitarist Jason Trenczer (ex-Mutilation) is a master of technical guitar work adding catchy riffs and solos. Second guitarist and new member Jason Velez contributes an Erie metal style with groove and melody. Newest edition to the band is Powerhouse Drummer Jim DeMaria (ex-Merauder), who adds an extra dose of speed and power with his hardcore/thrash background.
After their first release “Red, White and Blood” on Season Of Mist GENERATION KILL are currently recording their second album with Producer Zeuss, who is well known for his work with Agnostic Front, Chimaira, Hatebreed, Shadows Fall and Rob Zombie amongst others. They're approaching the new record as a challenge by trying not to do the same thing as on the first record but at the same time still keeping their identity of who there are – a group of guys that grew up on metal, punk and Pink Floyd – outside the norm.
GENERATION KILL is not a side project!
