Formed in 1989, KILL THE THRILL played as support for KILLING JOKE, ZENI GEVA, BIG CHIEF, YOUNG GODS, EINSTUERZENDE NEUBAUTEN, LA MUERTE, NEUROSIS, JIM ROSE CIRCUS, GRÖTUS, TREPONEM PAL and CORONER, before even releasing their first album in 1993.
This debut album "Dig" was produced by David Weber (TREPONEM PAL, YOUNG GODS). Counting three musicians only, KILL THE THRILL work with both a drum machine and samplers. In the same year they released the EP "Pit". Following both releases the band played at several French festivals and again toured through Europe.
While KILL THE THRILL started as a trio, only Marylin and Nicolas recorded the second full-length album "Low". This release is a balance of noise and quietness, with the impossibility to isolate one song from another.
KILL THE THRILL are three again when recording "203 Barriers", their debut on Season of Mist. Its recording and production was achieved by Nicolas Dick. With "203 Barriers" KILL THE THRILL developed their music to a daring sound, disturbing and extreme. But the bands compositions have evolved with the band itself. The fury is now under control and melodies obtained a real place within the compositions.
Their newest release, "Tellurique", finds the band hitting where it hurts. They have put together an extremely cold and clinical industrial / metal album that, at times, still emits rock and new wave elements. All the while, it seethes with melancholic atmosphere.
This exacerbated trio is a symbiosis, an entity, their argument is simple: nothing is flesh, universe is a sensation and we handle its unbearable rigor. KILL THE THRILL join the inexpressible, anger has no origin; when the events it is made of, body and waves, cant contain anymore patience and intelligibility, sounds become violence.
KILL THE THRILL can be seen live supporting DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN during their French dates and ISIS + JESU in the United Kingdom and Belgium.
