KillerHertz are a four-piece Danish Hard-Rock Band you can listen to their new single on your preferred music service following this link here.

How would you describe your music?

Its hard rock music that has a lot of energy, with a catchy chorus and tight beats. Rock Lifestyle described us thus: “like Volbeat had a baby with Megadeth”. 

Tell us about the history of the project?

The project started back in 2011 rehearsing once a week on borrowed instruments. We were childhood friends who have had a break from the music scene due to family and kids…we came from different bands, such as Saturnus, Pitch Black and Morbid Vision, meaning we mostly played trash and death metal. But after a few years break we were eager to start a band together but in the rock genre instead.

There are only two members left from the early days, Thomas Trold and Kent KillerHertz. The two new spots are now filled by Jonas Roxx on lead guitar and Jakob Nielsen on bass. 

What are your influences/ musical heroes?

There´s a tons of bands and artists, but mostly classic bands and artists from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, such as Megadeth, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Motley Crue, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Merciful Fate etc. – and the era of that time has had a significant influence on all of us, some of the best albums were made in that period.

What inspires you?

We get our inspiration from other bands and musicians, but also from the people around us, like family, friends and our kids. 

Do you write on the road? Or do you prefer to write in the studio?

Thomas Trold writes all lyrics himself and most of the writing at home or in the rehearsal-room. 

What is your favourite song to perform live?

Well, there are always songs that are better than other songs, but most of them are fun to play live – as long as we can maintain a good vibe and energy in that particular song, we will play it.    

What would be your dream tour to be a part of?

Metallica, The KillerHertz, Megadeth, Kiss and Iron Maiden perhaps ha-ha

What are your current thoughts on the music industry?

Technology like internet and streaming services has made it tough for the music industry the last twenty years or so. Music today is more widely available, but with artists getting smaller amounts in returns, decreasing record sales, online piracy, talent shows and so on….It really needs to be less mainstream, and should be more innovative, towards different types of music. 

What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?

We haven’t exactly been on a tour, well not yet ha-ha. But there are always small stories to tell, like one time our drummer slept for three hours on a toilet seat after a gig, thought he went home, but later woke up to an empty bar…. 

What are your future plans?

We are producing music videos at the moment and scheduled them for  release in January, March, May and June this year. At the same time, we will release an EP album the 29th of May. The concert schedule is still in the making, but hopefully this summer with a couple of concerts in Copenhagen and then we’ll see.
