April 6th Show

We are playing our first show of the year this Saturday,  April 6th

 

Creative process

Posted 3/25/2019
by Ted
Most of the songs started with a riff. More often than not, these riffs appear when I am jamming home alone. I record the riff ASAP on my computer, and if the inspiration is still there, an instrumental version of the song quickly takes shape. If I am no longer inspired after the initial riff, I just stock it in a file, and when other riffs appear, I dig in this file to try to match it up with something else. A few songs were written starting from the lyrics. La tête dans l’cul on the first record is an example, and so is Godly faith erosion on the second. The events of life are my source of inspiration for the lyrics. But they can come at anytime, whether I am on the job, or taking a shower! When a song takes shape, I record a demo version on my computer, with drums and bass midi tracks, and I then send this demo to the rest of the band. After that, everyone puts their personal touch, and the song comes to life.

Friday the 13th @ Foufounes Électriques

Posted 7/15/2018

Contrary to popular beliefs, Friday the 13th was a good day for Killing Unit. We had the privilege to share the stage with three great bands, Sans amertume, Helpless and the canadian metal vets, Anvil. 

The guys were a little nervous, but the evening went great. People took their time to move to the second floor at Foufs, but the place slowly filled up and Helpless opened the show with a good set of old school thrash, and the crowd appreciated.

Killing Unit then went on stage, and our set went very well. The crowd was amazing, chanting the choruses with us, and we had our very first moshpit!! The guys from anvil showed up on the mezzanine during our set, and they seemed to enjoy the show.

Bienvenido Kamilo

Posted 2/24/2018

After 2 months of searching intensively for a bass player, we are Proud to introduce you to our new member : Kamilo Novoa.

During his audition, Kamilo stood out of the other guys that we tried because of the subtlety of his playing, his quickness to adapt and his enthousiastic mood.

At the exact moment that he played his first notes, we knew that we have found the guy we were searching for.

Welcome Kamilo.

We would like to sincerely thank everybody that showed some interest in playing bass in the band. We wish you the best of luck in your future projects.
