Out Now! Party Grinders KILLITOROUS “The Afterparty”
Album guests from Voivod, Allegaeon, Soen, Blackguard, Cryptopsy, Firewind and more!
Available from Tentacles Industries (Worldwide), Self-Release (North America)
The highly anticipated album “The Afterparty” from Canadian tech-death comedy metal band KILLITOROUS (consisting of members from Annihilator, Suffocation, First Fragment, and more!) is now available as of May 22nd via label Tentacles Industries.
“The Afterparty” is the follow up to 2014’s “Party, Grind”, which was also co-produced, mixed, and mastered by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Despised Icon, The Agonist, Shadow of Intent) at The Grid in Montreal, Quebec.
The album features three guitars (which in terms of recording was a nightmare), tons of blast beats, brutal bass and vocals, plus of course tons of movie references, cartoon parodies, and endless phrases maintaining the fine art of partying. The track listing is as wacky and weird as usual, with a constant barrage of twisted pop-culture humor.
It also features a great list of party invitees with Dan Mongrain (Voivod/Martyr), Riley McShane (Allegaeon), Leo Diensthuber (Divine Realm), Cody Ford (Soen), Raphael Weinroth-Browne (Leprous), Youri Raymond (Unhuman), Callum Clark (Ending Tyranny), Paul Ablaze (Blackguard), Matt McGachy (Cryptopsy), Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschlager (ex-Obscura), Gore Lussier (Erimha), Bob Katsionis (Firewind), and Steven Henry (Neuraxis).
The band adds:
“‘The Afterparty’ is our sophomore effort, after many years of growing as musicians, friends and as a band. Since ‘Party, Grind’ was released in 2014, we’ve all individually joined hard-hitting and somewhat legendary bands and worked as sessions musicians for such bands as Annihilator, Suffocation, First Fragment, and more. We are more than stoked to show you our growth with our tremendous new line-up including a new vocalist and bassist, as well as the addition of a third guitar player. Similar to our debut release, this album is rammed full of blast beats, sweeps, shred, nasty vocals, and 90’s movie references. This new album features three guitars and as such is very dense harmonically, with very full arrangements and varies in styles across the metal genre. Besides more intense guitars and more solos, this album is a testament to our evolution as songwriters and features some of our catchiest songs/riffs to date. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!”
Killitorous‘ line up consists of Mathieu Dhani (Epiphany From The Abyss) on vocals, Guitarists: Aaron Homma( Annihilator/ex-Vital Remains), Nick Miller (First Fragment) and Marc Roy (ex-Divine Realm), Eric Morotti (Suffocation/ex-Blind Witness) on drums and Xavier Sperdouklis on bass.

Looking to become the band they never saw, Killitorous is comprised of the passion to grind and the general love of technical death metal.
Formed in 2006 in Ottawa, Canada; Killitorous is made up of current and former members of Annihilator, Suffocation, First Fragment and a myriad of other bands. Determined to sound like a combination of their one million favorite death metal bands they envelop technical death metal in an eternal party. A bit cheeky and a metric fuck ton of fun, Killitorous is that raunchy but charismatic friend who fuels every party.
Killitorous is a chaotic concoction, best described as technical party chaos death grind and it’s a true 90s death metal experience complete with one hell of an AfterParty!
“the group has expanded their line-up to adopt a triple-guitar attack within a tech-death setting and the results are f’ing awesome. ” – Metal Injection
“This Canadian death metal band is a party in black wifebeaters. In their video for the aptly-titled “Married With Children,” Killitorous hired a middle-aged woman to get crazy in the pit of a basement show. Excellent work, gentlemen.” – Loudwire
“Well F*ck me lifeless with possibility and throw my rotting corpse down a well with joy; if such an album hasn’t become manifest. It’s here for all to relish in the form of PartyGrind by Canada’s own Killitorous.” – The Circle Pit
