The Roadkill are based in Porsgrunn in Norway and label themselves as “hard rock / metal”. That pretty much covers the bases for their catchy sound which is nicely accessible.
As well as producing some good music, working together since 2011 (when the band restarted with new personnel after splitting in 2009) to develop their sound, they’ve got an interesting “persona” as well. A twisted gothic image to go with dark musical overtones. If you watch the video for “Choke” below, you’ll see that the visuals and the music go together very well.
There’s a touch of the Marilyn Mansons in there, again I’m thinking visually as well as audibly, with a bit of a sub/dom theme.
The new album Reborn was released at the end of December and I’ll try to get a quick review of it up here soon. In the meantime, enjoy the video and check out the links.
