Kin Beneath Chorus are the Greek winners of this years Wacken Metal Battle. They play at Wacken along with all the other Metal Battle winners from all over the world to compete for the Over All Metal Battle Champion!
Can you give the readers a quick introduction to the band.
We were formed back in 2010 in Greece, Thessaloniki. Our music is a combination of death metal and hardcore filtered with modern sound and attitude.
So far, we have released one demo called “Nothing is Sacred” (2011) and a full length album called “Futuristic.Composed” (2013). We have also released one lyric video of the track “Greetings Atrocity” that can be found in “Futuristic.Composed”. Straight from our album also comes our first official video clip “Beyond the Dynamic”. Last but not least, at June 1, 2014 we released our new single called “Session XII”
How would you describe your sound.
We would describe it as aggressive but still melodic and modern.
How would you describe the metal music scene in your country. What has changed over the last few years?
The largest change is that the bands are fewer nowadays. This is not necessarily bad because the level of the bands that are still playing is much, much higher.
