I have seen Ice Nine Kills live on a couple of different occasions and they have always impressed me with their unique blending of pop infused post-hardcore and technical metal that is both adventurous and surprising. This new EP, Predator, runs the gamut as far as styles go. From the hard, heavy super technical opener, “The Coffin Is Moving”, to the pop-infused Adele cover, “Someone Like You”, to the slowed down acoustic number, “Six Feet Below”, there is literally something on here for everyone.

Ice Nine Kills’ latest EP The Predator reached #9 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and #38 on the Independent label chart with first week sales of 1,476 copies. The Predator EP was only available digitally and through their MerchNow store, and was funded by the band’s recently fulfilled Kickstarter campaign, which raised more than double their initial $10,000 goal (500 backers contributed $21,258 total funds). Additionally, The Predator was #15 on the iTunes rock chart and was Revolver Magazine’s “album of the week.” The band will enter the studio in April to record their next full-length album.
