In Paris, amidst the boulevards and the Seine’s languid flow, Kill The Void reintroduces themselves with “Suck Your Idols,” a fervent techno-punk concoction, weaving its dance from EBM to hair metal and post-punk. This French pairing crafts an artful tension, juxtaposing seductive rock vocals with searing, impassioned cries. Through deft manipulation of their gear and the strategic use of distortion, they channel a poignant, rebellious spirit, echoing the fervor of punk’s decadent heyday that was recaptured briefly during the electronica era of the early to mid-90s.
Imagine a world where Manowar and Ronnie James Dio walk into the pulsating heart of a Berlin techno party and have a dance-off to the Industrial rock classic “Juke Joint Jezebel” by KMFDM, as well as select tracks from The Prodigy’s 1997 album “The Fat of the Land.” This description more or less captures the essence of the electrifying track “Suck Your Idols.”
Ella and Ash’s initial encounter centered on a brief horror film endeavour, a shared affinity for the chillingly macabre drawing them together. While their affections lie rooted in hard rock and metal, the allure of techno soirees isn’t lost on them, placing the duo in a tantalizing liminal space between both worlds.
In their quest to satiate their artistic inclinations, they acquired a Prophet 6 and a TB303, pairing them with distortion pedals and an inclination for the frenzied.
Kill The Void debuted with their EP “Cult of Tau,” courting listeners through UK’s Dance Trax label. Their offering, a novel intersection of techno-punk, seamlessly fuses the mechanical with the profoundly eerie. Cult of Tau garnered accolades from industry stalwarts like Tsugi, Maxximum, and Rinse, culminating in performances in Berlin’s vibrant scene. Their sophomore offering, “Future Revolution,” was introduced under the aegis of their self-established label, Vvoid Club Records, in 2022.
Remaining true to their punk ethos, and eschewing fleeting fads, the ensemble has embraced their audacious persona. As 2023 unfolds, they venture forth with an evolved live performance and two forthcoming EPs, hinting at a caustic electronic extravaganza marked by lush synthesizers and fervent vocalizations.
