Kill Trip delivers an in-your-face sludge rock soundtrack for the end of humanity!
The band plays sludgy riffs with elements of hardcore and punk. Justesen's vocals range from a dark and somber “Weltschmerz” tone to an aggressive “FUCK THE SYSTEM!” assault.
The band is inspired by the bands they heard when they were young, like Down, Life of Agony and Alice in Chains. But also newer acts such as Red Fang, Mastodon and Kowloon Walled City are inspirations.
The lyrics circle around the desperation and frustration of poverty, drug addiction, death, the degradation of the climate, war, religion/spirituality, mysticism and the natural elements that surround us.
A special driving force is the fear of becoming the generation who will witness the demise of the planet.
Kill Trip is:
Karsten Gøeg: drums
Thomas Gajhede: guitars
Claus Langkjær: bass
