Killkount is a brutal death metal band based in India with a current lineup of Vishal Dalwani (vocals), Divyanshu Gupta (guitar), Laksh Thamman (guitar), and Aditya Oke (drums). The group just put out their full length LP titled Konflict & Terror just last month, which was engineered and mixed by Aakash Sherpa, vocalist of Indian progressive metallers If Hope Dies. Overall, the album was a solid display of both hard-hitting riff barrages and extreme technical virtuosity in the vein of Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, or Allegaeon.
We're proud to be premiering the full band playthrough video for their single "W.M.D." The song is dedicated and tribute to the band's bassist, Mradul Singhal, who recently passed away from a road accident. Guitarist Divyanshu states, "'W.M.D.' was the first Killkount song ever written back in 2014, when the first draft of the lineup picked their instruments and jammed for the first time. Conceptually, the song is from the perspective of a nuclear weapon and it's talking about being potentially the most destructive force mankind will ever see. It's like a character sketch of a one shot solution to end mankind, and what it thinks about us swarming over this beautiful planet like cockroaches. The video is the last bit of work to feature late Mradul Singhal after his shocking demise in a road accident on March 13th and serves as a tribute from the band to their fallen brother."
The track showcases the group's impressive musicalities and spot-on brutal songwriting. Check out the band tear it up viciously in the playthrough video below, which features Aakash Sherpa also adding guest vocals.
