Biography

The Killing is a six piece metal band from the suburbs of Philadelphia in Southern New Jersey. Shortly after forming in 2002, The Killing recorded their first album resulting in a dark mixture of metal and hardcore. After solidifying their line-up, The Killing emerged in February 2003, immediately gaining a name for themselves in response to their extremely energetic live performance as well as their musicianship. Their debut album, 'What is Yet to Come' was released August 2003 and received an abundance of positive reviews and feedback.

Into late 2003 The Killing continued their campaign to heavily promote their debut release. The band's intense live performances were duely rewarded and recognized with slots on the first New Jersey Metal & Hardcore festival in 2003 and then Hellfest 2004. Aside from festivals, the Killing has shared the stage with an impressive list of national touring acts including Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Between the Buried and Me, and Children of Bodom.

Going into the summer of 2004, The Killing focused on writing new material for a full length release. Ten songs were recorded during pre-production sessions, three of which appear on an Ep entitled 'Exhibit A'. The songs on 'Exhibit A' display a great leap in The Killing's musical progression with well orchestrated songs that are technical and coherent. 'Exhibit A', released in November 2004 by 'End All Music', is meant to give fans a taste of where the band is going.
