Danish Melodic Death Metal band Killing Gandhi are set to release their début full length album Cinematic Parallels this coming August 14th through the Norwegian label Crime Records. Transporting the listener to a mind-scape of Danish pop and Swedish melodeath, Cinematic Parallels is Killing Gandhi’s version of the scandi metal sound, taking inspirations from bands in the same vein as In Flames, Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir & Soilwork, among others from the Heavy Metal scene, and Medina, Robyn and Daft Punk on the more commercial side of the Heavy Music scene, creating a good mixture of short, effective and catchy songs.
Founded in 2013 and hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark Killing Gandhi include among its ranks past members of Evil Masquerade, Manticora, Wuthering Heights, Ureas & Sickseed, as well as the current drummer for the long running band Illdisposed.
Killing Gandhi are:
Thorbjørn “ThunderBear” Jensen (Vox)
Martin Arendal (Guitar)
Kasper Gram (Bass)
Rasmus Schmidt (Drums)
The concept of Cinematic Parallels is a top 11 of Martin Arendal’s all time favourite movies. The 11 movie titles then got renamed based of Martin’s interpretation of the film, and that title based the headline of each song, and lyrics were written with that title in mind. Therefore the title Cinematic Parallels.
The debut album from Killing Gandhi is mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Pretty Maids, TÝR, Evergrey a.o).
Recordings for Cinematic Parallels were achieved at Mono Mono Studios and Studio 907 MKII between the months of May & August of 2013, with the great Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Mercenary….) carrying out the mixing and mastering responsibilities.
Cinematic Parallels is available now for pre-orders at a special price on the Crime Records web-store.
