After undergoing somewhat of a musical transition with last album Euthanize-Steralize, Western Australian metal outfit Kimura have now settled on their hard hitting sound and are preparing to unleash the onslaught onto the public with their upcoming album Circle The Prey, which will be out towards the end of October.
To introduce fans to the new, brutal direction Kimura have unleashed the first track from the album, Sharpen The Bones, with vocalist Josh Kelly joining HEAVY to chat about the song and the album.
“It’s fallen in line with everything we’re trying to do with the whole writing process for the album,” he explained. “Sharpen The Bones was actually one of the last songs that we wrote for the album, and it just came really organically like a lot of the songs did. We wanted to highlight some of the really cool stuff that our guitarist Ian was doing with some of his riffs and some of his fret work, while maintaining the melody and groove that we have. A punchy, heavy, smack in the face sound.”
In the full interview, Josh goes into more details about the meaning behind Sharpen The Bones and its eerie film clip, the heavier direction undertaken by the band, his role as vocalist, the sound of Kimura and where it comes from and more.
