Kill the King is a thrash metal act based out of Pune, India. Rishikesh Dharap (guitar) and Aditya Swaminathan (guitar, bass; Halahkuh) joined together with an interest to revive thrash back in 2016. Just recently, they added on Pritam Goswami Adhikary (vocals; Aarlon) and Akarsh Singh (drums) leading to a full lineup and finally some killer material.
Their debut single "In the Name of Culture" harnesses Power Trip and Havok momentum, bursting with fast-paced rhythms and barking vocals. If you are intrigued by the band's rapid headbang-inciting energy, stay tuned for their upcoming nine-track debut album planned for late 2021. For now, check out the lyric video of the aforementioned single now.
