Why She Kills Announce New Singers

Dutch metallers WHY SHE KILLS have announced the addition of Anita Borst and Danielle Logtenberg to the group's ranks. Brutal vocalist Anita has learned the tricks of the trade as a bass player and backing vocalist in METHYLBENZEEN and IZEGRIM and as a lead vocalist in BELLE GUNNESS. Danielle is as fresh as Anita is experienced, but her powerful clean voice already benefits from a thorough classical training.

The outfit has set a June 2 release date for its brand new EP, "Daydreams of Obliteration". The follow-up to 2006's "Of Hope and Suffocation" will be more death metal, more brutal but also more technical and melodic.

WHY SHE KILLS is in the final stages of booking the first shows with the new ladies and will also announce some summer festival appearances shortly.

Check out a brand new band picture on the group's MySpace page.

Ex-Genetic Wisdom Members Launch Why She Kills

The sensational new Dutch metal machine featuring two female vocalists and 4 ex-Genetic Wisdom members, WHY SHE KILLS have recorded their first EP, expected to be released on September 7th 2006.

WHY SHE KILLS came to life in March 2006. The Dutch six piece featuring Ronny Scholten (ex Sacrosanct drums), Peter Slootbeek (lead guitars), Ralph Roelvink (guitars, also Callenish Circle touring bass player) and Gerrit Knol (ex Sacrosanct)–all ex Genetic Wisdom –and eye catchers (the blonde) Janneke van Berkel (vocals/growls) and Imke Kuipers (vocals) are fully armed and ready to deliver some fury.

The press release reads: "The introduction of Janneke and Imke means a very fresh, unique and new approach of the aggressive and melodic 'newcore' this outfit brings to your ears. Battling over vocal ground these two 'bitches in disguise' will bring it all; the grunts, the screams, melodic clean vocals and sisterly harmonics. The experienced musicians delivering the music are widely influenced coming from classic Bay Area thrash all the way to modern metalcore and melodic death metal. Yes, it's cooking with lots of different spices in the WHY SHE KILLS kitchen! Their one and only motto however is; brutality and melody'."

WHY SHE KILLS has worked hard the past weeks. Together with producer Arno Krabman (Wackmobil, Lange Frans baas B) and Nienke de Jong (Autumn) the band recorded their "Of Hope and Suffocation" EP at the Graveland Studio. "Of Hope and Suffocation" is currently available for FREE download now at the band's myspace page.

1. Demise of Your Crown
2. A Lover's Poetry
3. Of Hope and Suffocation
4. Spasm of Violence [to be continued….]

WHY SHE KILLS continues talking to labels that already showed interest and the first string of live dates will be announced shortly. The band hopes to release their debut full length in the second half of 2007.
