Team Kill - Team Kill Newsletter Interview

01 May 2015 // An interview by Shade

Team Kill are a five-piece Metal band hailing from Hamilton. The band released their first EP, Age Of Disease on June 21st 2014. With a new EP already in the pipeline they're hitting the road once again, living up to their reputation as the hardest working metal band in NZ, embarking on a 9-date stomp around the country! Rob 'Chuck' Walker answered the following questions for muzic.net.nz:

What is the one thing you want NZ to know about Team Kill?

Our name. Team Kill. We want to use this tour as a way to increase our profile, let people know who we are, and what we’re all about.

How would you describe Team Kill’s music in one sentence?

Honest, straight-forward, no-holds-barred, head banging riffs and brutal energy, delivered with a deep groove and killer lyrical hooks.

What has been your most memorable show to date?

We had a blast touring the country last year on the Rooster’s Roadshow, and the Hamilton show on that tour was off the hook….. but probably the most memorable show would have to be supporting the mighty Devilskin at King Street live in Masterton, 2013. That night was truly insane….

What local albums have you been enjoying recently?

We supported Seasons when Patriarch was released, and that album’s been a favourite for a while now, and the new Just One Fix album Let Them Hate, So Long As They Fear as well. Lately we’ve been digging the new Thy Assassin album A World Left Behind….. and we’re patiently waiting to get our hands on the upcoming Inhale album 10 Cones!

What sets you apart from other bands?

Our work ethic, relentless. 3.5% more metal every day! That, and the fact we roll as a Team… brothers. Unbreakable.

Where do you get your inspiration to create music from?

Life. Shit keeps happening to everyone, you deal with it…there’s inspiration in the struggles. The shit we see going on in the world, in our society. The way people treat each other. Just everyday life.

What can we expect to see from Team Kill over the next year?

A new EP, that’s already in the pipeline. We’ll be getting around the country a little more this year, and we’re keen to tour again when the EP is released. So essentially, more of the same!

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Don’t ever stop. Talk less, listen more. Be careful who you take advice from. Stay humble and be prepared to work your arse off…. 3.5% more metal, everyday!
