To Kill started out of plain love for hardcore and based on solid friendships amongst its members. However, what’s been very unique right from the start was a unconditional dedication to the band and its cause. That made To Kill, after only a few years, one of the biggest names in today’s European hardcore scene.
With an unbelievably huge amount of shows To Kill have been playing around Europe as well as the USA, the band has been touring relentlessly after the release of their debut mcd on Still Life Records and their debut album “Watching You Fall” on Catalyst Records.
The Gsr Music-years (2006-2009) first brought the release of their second album “Vultures”, a long winter tour with American metal band Gather, visiting almost every country in Europe and their most important tour at the time, supporting Swedish hardcore legends Raised Fist, followed by the several big festivals in Europe and yet another tour with Set Your Goals and No Trigger. In spring 2008 To Kill released their acclaimed second effort for Gsr, "When Blood turns Into Stone", a fresh new record a little more metal influenced. The release was followed by various tours/shows with some of the biggest bands in today's hardcore and metal scene, like Parkway Drive, Suicide Silence and Bury Your Dead, finally ending the year 2008 with the band’s first headliner tour in Europe supported by two promising American bands, Recon and Liferuiner. In 2009, after yet another tour with US hardcore legend Bane, and the release of their "Maelstrom" mcd, which has been released as a benefit for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, an organization strongly supported by the band, To Kill started working on their final album.
The new record is called "Antarctica" and marks the final step in To Kill’s career. Although it is, without any doubt, their most powerfull and passionate release to date, supported by a new and strong partnership with Let it Burn Records, the band decided to call it a day after one final tour and a handful of farewell shows in Italy.
“Antarctica” represents like nothing else the band's life and attitude, blending more perfectly than ever before their hardcore roots with their metal influences. It is a strong and solid final statement of one of the most active and influential European Hardcore Bands of the decade.
