The Kill Circuit has been writing and playing from their headquarters in Norfolk, VA since 2010. The main constant for the band has been how uncategorizable they are. Yes, they are a “rock band”, but they skim the boundaries of that word, giving homage to many musical influences in each melody. Threading these traits together is the same obsessive attention to detail from guitar player/singer Mike Ragan, drummer Joey Rudacil and bassist/singer EJ Toudt that creates their unique sound. The music made for their first self titled EP reflects a process that’s even more detail oriented than earlier efforts by each members former projects (Buzzard, Crab Nebula, Black Ranchero, JWonder). Drawing influences from bands as diverse as Rocket From the Crypt, Isis, Turbonegro, Helmet, and Radiohead, The Kill Circuit set out to create a sound that combines heavy music with a more melodic approach to singing. And though they are only a three piece band, the live show is full of sound and energy. Blisteringly loud,driving and unbelievably melodic at the same time, the sound created by these gentlemen belies their numbers.
