ICE NINE KILLS are a Boston, Massachusetts metalcore band renowned for their theatrical approach and horror-themed lyrics. Formed in 2002 by Spencer Charnas, the band began as a post-hardcore outfit before evolving into their current style.

Frontman Spencer Charnas, known for his dynamic stage presence, serves as the driving force behind ICE NINE KILLS. The band’s lineup has seen several changes over the years, with notable members including Justin “JD” deBlieck on guitar, Joe Occhiuti on bass, and Patrick Galante on drums.

ICE NINE KILLS gained traction with their early releases, including “Last Chance to Make Amends” (2006) and “Safe Is Just a Shadow” (2010), which showcased their blend of aggressive riffs, melodic hooks, and Charnas‘ emotive vocals. However, it was their 2015 album, “Every Trick in the Book,” that propelled them into the spotlight. This concept album drew inspiration from classic literary works and solidified their unique horror-inspired identity.

In 2018, they released “The Silver Scream,” an album that paid homage to iconic horror movies. This release garnered widespread acclaim and further cemented ICE NINE KILLS‘ status as masters of combining heavy music with cinematic storytelling.

Through their relentless touring and captivating live performances, ICE NINE KILLS has amassed a dedicated fanbase, affectionately known as “The Psychos.” With their ever-evolving sound and commitment to theatricality, the band continues to push boundaries and captivate audiences worldwide.
