Side-Line introduces Kill Minus Nine - listen now to'Burn Dystopia' (Face The Beat profile series)

The 41st track on our free download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 4” (featuring 92 tracks) is by the American dark wave act Kill Minus Nine.

The Denver based band Kill Minus Nine combines ultra-heavy beats and glitchy synthesis with driving guitar and emotional, aggressive vocals to create something fresh but also nostalgic as you can hear in the track they have submitted.

KM9 was formed in early 2013 in Colorado by collaborators from several other projects, including EBM outfits Die Brücke and Emergence, as well as the Denver metal act Nemesys. With their clear rock sensibilities and EBM influences, Kill Minus Nine (KM9) is reminiscent of 1990s Industrial rock acts such as KMFDM or Nine Inch Nails, while at the same time bringing their own unique “techno-tribal” sound to the genre. The current line-up consists of Jason Ayres, Erik Johnson, Rob Holman, Corey Drake, Noel Johannes.

You can find them right here on Facebook or on their official website.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
