Swedish black metal act Rimfrost recently reunited after their split in 2019. The trio has worked hard during the brightest months of 2021 to rev up the engine and dismount the breaks, and is now ready to go full throttle with two new tracks that depict the story of a killer. “Killer Instinct,” the first of those singles (but the final one from the tale), got its premiere via MetalSucks.
“Killer Instinct” will be available on all digital/streaming platforms on October 31st. A music video for the track will be revealed soon.
“When we started to write music for the comeback, we really didn’t know what we wanted to write about, but we quickly felt that we wanted and that we should continue on the horror path from ‘Expedition: Darkness’ since we all are huge horror fans, especially, we all share some extra love for 70´s-80´s slasher/zombie horror.
“After some discussions back and forth, we decided to create our own storyline that runs over 2 singles with our own made-up killer with inspiration from Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees, Leatherface, and all those classic killers. The story starts with ‘The rise of Evil’ (to be released later) and ends with ‘Killer Instinct.’ It all ended up as ‘The rise of Evil: Killer Instinct,’ and we are very happy and proud of how it all turned out!”
