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 Nightwish, Amon Amarth, Dimmu Borgir  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.

Check out various appetizers from “Fires Of Life“ that is both lyrically and musically overlain in medieval fantasy-themed battles, mythology, and destruction:
Fires Of Life
New Infernal Rebirth”
Sword, Spear, Blood, Fire
Whispers Of Heresy
