“Hailing from the frigid, bitter metropolis that is Helsinki, Finland, Killing Frost are finally back in 2023 after releasing a highly touted demo tape a few years back. Featuring members of modern Crossover Thrash legends Foreseen, Killing Frost takes a similarly metallic approach to their Hardcore, but in a completely different way. While the material on the Self-Titled 7″ is still rooted in Killing Frost’s signature concoction of bands like Celtic Frost, Sheer Terror, Discharge, and Carnivore, there’s a little more of an experimental feel to the 3 songs on this EP. I mean, when was the last time you heard a Hardcore record with keyboards on it? Bands in Killing Frost’s lane are generally afraid to take risks and break the mold, but these Finnish boys clearly don’t give a fuck about being generic or playing it safe. The centerpiece and closer “Wilkman’s War II” clocks in at almost 5 minutes, and there isn’t a single second where your skull isn’t being pounded in by absolutely barbaric riffing and blood curdled screams. There’s some very apparent Rock N Roll swagger mixed into the brutality of Killing Frost’s music, making each song more memorable than the last. It would also be a crime to not mention frontman Niko Wilkman’s absolutely ferocious vocal performance. He’s swinging for the fences and hitting it out of the park just as Paul Bearer, John Brannon, and Jack “Choke” Kelly did before him. Absolutely top notch stuff across the board – can’t recommend it highly enough!” – Connor Donegan
