Formed in 2009, Kinasis have been gigging sporadically throughout the UK since March 2010. Since then they have shared a stage with the likes of Sepultura, Malefice, Flayed Disciple, Sworn Amongst, Abadden and Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster.
Kinasis have also played in Italy and the UK with upcoming Italian guitar virtuoso Gianluca Ferro and his band SHINE and played some UK dates with Gian and Japanese session musician and guitar maestro Isao Fujita (Spark7, Kami band and many others).
Kinasis are a collective of talented musical explorers, unbound by any single metal sub-genre, avoiding all trends and perceived scene ‘rules’. Often walking the fine line between noise and music, chaos and order; Mixing extreme death metal, thrash and grind-core influences with more contemporary metal to create a unique, uncompromising brand of metal which transcends any current metal sub-genre/classification and appeals to a wide range of metal fans. A blend of brutality and melody, technicality and groove; Kinasis songs are almost exclusively in odd-time and contain complex and intricate arrangements. Mosh pit friendly hooks abound throughout, occasional blast beats add to the sheer brutality of it all. All of this is overlaid with a versatile range of vocal styles. Synths and samples add additional textures. The band’s ferociously tight delivery makes them a force to be reckoned with.
Now Kinasis are looking to take the next step and are seeking opportunities for both release and touring to gain a wider acceptance and throw down the gauntlet to the world, aiming to prove that the UK is still the best country in the world for inspirational, dynamic, visceral music.
