Biography

Chicago, Illinois, United States (1987 – present)

My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult (often shortened to Thrill Kill Kult or TKK) is an American band formed in 1987 originally based in Chicago, Illinois, United States. Along with Wax Trax labelmates Ministry, KMFDM, and Front 242, Thrill Kill Kult helped develop the music genre, but they themselves continued to evolve, creating a sound that is not easily identified or categorized. Their music can be described as music with heavy beats, reminiscent of both and , yet amplified to a sometimes abrasive level. Thrill Kill Kult reflected a shift where records could be ominous and aggressive, and they laced their music with riffs and references that would seem more at home in a group. One of their most distinctive characteristics is their use of spoken-word samples lifted from B-movies and other sources.

Frankie Nardiello and Marston Daley met in the spring of 1987 while touring together with the band Ministry. Soon after, Nardiello and Daley began to conceive an art film to be called My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult - a headline taken from a British tabloid Nardiello had noted a few years prior when he lived in London. The film was never completed, but the music they had recorded for its soundtrack appealed to Wax Trax! Records, who released the completed songs as a three-track EP entitled My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult (1988).

    I love how this band can sound *really* cheap porno one minute and the next minute sound like a group of demonic ghosts worshipping their dark lord in a cave somewhere and the next minute like CANDY MOUNTAIN, CHARLIE. Sex, drugs and Satan, indeed! <3

    Spooky Tricks is fun on a bun! I haven't been this impressed since The Reincarnation of Luna, which was great IMHO.

    Можно долго рассуждать о том, что же они на самом деле представляют из себя, но проще будет сказать, что это полная хрень.

    "Never heared anything like them before." I'd say Ministry's Land of Rape and Honey is their most obvious inspiration, you should give it a try.
