“Killitorous already given the widespread success and tech-death scene’s mass awareness of their 2014 debut album, Party, Grind. If not, you missed out, and the band is dropping their second album, The Afterparty, on May 22nd through Tentacle Industries. Only this time the group has expanded their line-up to adopt a triple-guitar attack within a tech-death setting and the results are fucking awesome.” – Metal Injection
“This Canadian death metal band is a party in black wifebeaters. In their video for the aptly-titled “Married With Children,” Killitorous hired a middle-aged woman to get crazy in the pit of a basement show. Excellent work, gentlemen.” – Loudwire
“Well F*ck me lifeless with possibility and throw my rotting corpse down a well with joy; if such an album hasn’t become manifest. It’s here for all to relish in the form of PartyGrind by Canada’s own Killitorous.” – The Circle Pit
“Killitorous Don’t Suck Sh*t” – MetalSucks
Looking to become the band they never saw, Killitorous is comprised of the passion to grind and the general love of technical death metal.
Formed in 2006 in Ottawa, Canada; Killitorous is made up of current and former members of Annihilator, Suffocation, First Fragment and a myriad of other bands. Determined to sound like a combination of their one million favorite death metal bands they envelop technical death metal in an eternal party. A bit cheeky and a metric f*ck ton of fun, Killitorous is that raunchy but charismatic friend who fuels every party.
Killitorous is a chaotic concoction, best described as technical party chaos death grind and it’s a true 90s death metal experience complete with one hell of an AfterParty!
Their latest album “The Afterparty” due out May 22, 2020 via label Tentacles Industries is the follow up to 2014’s “Party, Grind”, which was also co-produced, mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Despised Icon, The Agonist, Shadow of Intent) at The Grid in Montreal, Quebec.
The album features three guitars (which in terms of recording was a nightmare), tons of blast beats, brutal bass and vocals, plus of course tons of movie references, cartoon parodies and endless phrases maintaining the fine art of partying.
The guests on “The Afterparty” are just as you’d expect from a great metal bash that includes Dan Mongrain (Voivod/Martyr), Riley McShane (Allegaeon), Leo Diensthuber (Divine Realm), Cody Ford (Soen), Raphael Weinroth-Browne (Leprous), Youri Raymond (Unhuman), Callum Clark (Ending Tyranny), Paul Ablaze (Blackguard), Matt McGachy (Cryptopsy), Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschlager (ex-Obscura), Gore Lussier (Erimha), Bob Katsionis (Firewind), Steven Henry (Neuraxis).
