SurKill is a heavy metal band from Austin, Texas. With complex riffs, melodic elements, brutal vocals, and lyrics with meaning, SurKill delivers a unique spin on the conventions of the metal genre.
The band’s roster has undergone several changes since the project’s inception. Founded by Terry Taylor (Lead/Rhythm Guitar) and Stephen Hurt (Vocals), the band had guitarists and bassists come and go, before Terry’s sons Sethe Taylor (Drums) and Ashton Taylor (Lead/Rhythm Guitar) joined the group. The addition of Jason Ogden (Bass) solidified the band’s lineup. The band states their influences as Arch Enemy, Pantera, Lamb of God, Chimaira, Slayer, Sepultura, Necrophagist, Whitechapel, Tool and Slipknot.
Surkill’s first full length studio album, Beyond the Guillotine, was recorded, mixed, and produced by Chico Jones at Ohm Recording Facility in Austin, Texas. Beyond the Guillotine is now available for sale.
