Nefariant (ex-IKILLYA) Releases Debut EP

From the ashes of IKILLYA, New York City Metal band Nefariant is here with a surprise drop of their debut EP, which was released on January 24th, 2020. The band debuted the material at a listening party at New York’s metal homebase, Duff’s Alchohol Abuse Center in Brooklyn. Nefariant features former IKILLYA members Jason Lekberg (vocals), Rob Broderick (bass) and Drew Maciejewsk (drums) along with (keyboards) Paul Cibrano and (guitarist) Dustin Tooker. The band seems to have forged a sound that mixes the extremity of their former projects with a melodic Gothic vibe. You can purchase and stream the EP at the links below. Continue reading
