Formed in 2008 by Parker Jameson, Spencer Weidner and Charlie Federici, the band self-released an EP in 2010 under the moniker Massakren and played numerous shows across the US. A buzz about the band soon developed in the metal underground, and in tandem with signing to global powerhouse Century Media Records, they decided to change their name to STARKILL to mark the next chapter in their musical career.

While most of their peers were listening to and playing to the “core” US-based bands, the members of STARKILL spent their days cutting their chops to European metal – and the band makes no qualms about wearing their influences on their sleeves. Inspired by the likes of early Children Of Bodom à la the now classic “Hatebreeder” and “Follow the Reaper”, in addition to Dimmu Borgir, Nightwish, Amon Amarth and Dragonforce, STARKILL aims to pay homage to these acts, while also putting their own spin on Euro-metal – and their new album, “Fires of Life”, does just that.

Produced by the band’s own Jameson and mastered by death metal legend, James Murphy (Death, Testament, Obituary), the album’s concept, both lyrically and musically, is overlain in medieval fantasy-themed battles, mythology, and destruction. “Fires of Life”‘s artwork, created by renowned metal artist, Joshua Belanger, captures this perfectly.

Stay tuned for more news about STARKILL and “Fires of Life” coming soon!
