Starkill: launches album trailer for "Fires Of Life" online
Chicagoland-based STARKILL has now launched an album teaser for their upcoming album, "Fires Of Life". Due out April 30th in North America and May 13th in Europe via Century Media Records, "Fires Of Life" is both lyrically and musically overlain in medieval fantasy-themed battles, mythology, and destruction. For a preview of the album, click the link below to watch the official trailer:

Right after "Fires Of Life" is released, STARKILL will head out on a North American tour with Hypocrisy, Krisiun, Aborted and Arsis. The band will also be playing a few headlining and supporting shows after their stint on the trek.
While most of their peers were listening to and playing to the "core" US-based bands, the members of STARKILL spent their days cutting their chops to European metal - and the band makes no qualms about wearing their influences on their sleeves. Inspired by the likes of early Children Of Bodom à la the now classic "Hatebreeder" and "Follow The Reaper", in addition to Nightwish, Amon Amarth, Dimmu Borgir and Dragonforce, STARKILL aims to pay homage to these acts, while also putting their own spin on Euro-metal - and their new album, "Fires of Life", does just that.
