Kill All The Gentlemen Talks of Merch, Shows, and Music!

Modernized death metal band KILL ALL THE GENTLEMEN have got some new music in the works, with their previous content widely available including 3 EP's and 2 album's with some hope to get out into the festival scene with more shows in suite as well. The band talks of shows, music, merch and more.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

KATG are from Southwest England born in 2013. Our mission was to create aggressive relentless music but with catchy hooks and melodies thrown in to at least shock and raise attention to ourselves in more accessible scenes. Our biggest shows to date have included Bloodstock Festival, Mammothfest, and main support in Eastern Europe for Napalm Death and Cradle Of Filth. The bands current lineup is:

Adam Martin - Guitar and vocals

Ben Andrew - Bass Guitar and backing vocals

Mike Precious - Guitar

Thomas Rorstad - Drums

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The name came from an event in time called The Prayer Book Rebellion. In 1549 in a local village to us The Battle Of Fenny Bridges took place, many died and the river ran red. By order of the King was to “Kill All The Gentlemen”

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based in East Devon, Exeter primarily with The Cavern probably being our hometown venue where we get our main local following and support to come and see us at every opportunity.

Exeter is very lucky to still have a club sized venue and is still one of the best in the country in my opinion but they are few and far between these days, especially for metal. I think the pandemic has played a big part in this.

If I was to recommend a band at the moment I would have to give a shout out to our new Swedish friends in Recreated who recently came over to the UK and did a run of shows with us.

4. How would you describe your style?

This is always a tricky one, particularly now in metal as there are so many sub genres but I feel we’ve steered away from that and gone down a more traditional route. I’d describe is as a modern death metal band with catchy hooks and melodies whilst retaining relentless aggression.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far we have released 3 EPs and 2 full length albums. Our latest “Black Canvas” came out this year and is still very much new as we are yet to properly go out and tour it but it’s in the works! Expect to hear 200bpm relentless energy, blast beats, double kicks, guitar harmonies, hooks, melodies, beat downs and angry vocals. Balls to the wall metal!

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We are always writing new music in the background. We have about 3 or 4 songs demoed at the moment but as our new album has only just been released we’re are not sure what will happen with these tracks but maybe they will be released in some form next year to keep the wheels in motion.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Our next stop is Beermageddon festival in Bromsgrove. It’s a privilege to be asked to play a sold out 10th anniversary event, we’re really looking forward to it. Afterwards we will be out doing another UK run and potentially Scandinavia and the Baltics this year.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Would love to get on some major festivals and broaden our audiences and horizons.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

As always the easiest way is to find us on all streaming platforms, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Pornhub etc.

You can buy some merchandise from us on our big cartel page or drop us a message on your social media platform and we’ll be happy to assist!

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Like a nostalgic breath of fresh air! Something you’ve been wanting to hear in metal for a long time. Like one of your favorite albums from the good old days that you wish bands sounded like today! Give us a try!
