After The Kill / Press

“First up this month is a band out of Hazard, KY called After The Kill. The group consists of Devin Combs on vocals, Johnny Neace on guitars, Sean Fryman on bass and Brandon Smith on drums. They call their style of metal "Deathgroove" but to me they are more "groove" than "death". The songs are mostly up tempo in nature, like the songs "Trigger To Reality" and "Honor The Code", but on songs like "Undying" and "Lost Cause" they switch things up and mix in some more mid and slower tempo riffs in to give the songs some texture and breathing room. There's some pretty cool single note riffing in "Trigger To Reality" and "Honor The Code" and some pretty thick chording.........”
