THE THRILL KILLERS
The Thrill Killers was formed in late 2010 by former members of Flashburn Sam Illich, John Marlatt and Jimi Russell who is also a current member of Bag of Humans from Baltimore Maryland. Damian Arletto of Jane Likes Dick and Scott Reedy and Brian Roper both of Peace Corps fame, joined up merging the overwhelming power of each respective band into one... The Thrill Killers.
Van Brando is a San Diego based Hip Hop & Metal / Hip Hop Emcee (MC/Rapper). Van Brando's style is unique not only to Daygo, but to SoCal (Southern California) as well. The scene has rarely been exposed to an Artist in the past 10 years who has an original approach to Hip Hop.
This all changed when Van Brando jumped on the scene. Imagine if Pantera, Slayer, System of a Down, Cradle of Filth and I See Stars were all in a raw musical orgy with Tech N9ne, Immortal Technique, Eminem, Beastie Boys, Hopsin and Necro. The result is not a messy room filled with money shots... It's an artistic display of borderline genius meets insanity.
In San Diego Van Brando is known as a screamer... Noooooo you sick bastards and confused Hip Hop lovers, not that type of screamer! The screaming Van Brando does, is a well balanced mix between the Underground Hip Hop culture, Metalcore culture and a Tarantino flick. Anytime an Artist can emerge in a flooded, convoluted and confused Underground Hip Hop scene and bring something new to the table... Fans can tell they've stumbled upon a rare gem.
If you're in Los Angeles (LA), Orange County (OC), San Diego (SD), Nova Scotia (CAN), Zambonia (AFR), Japan (JPN), Netherlands (NL) or somewhere on Sirius B... You can probably hear this dude ripping a mic right now if you listen carefully. Stars pass gas... Van Brando is essentially his own solar system of Hip Hop music fused with the hardcore stylings of a mad man. Van Brando is not looking to be the next star... He's looking to be your next inspiration!
"Shemrok Christ has survived a barrage of shortcomings throughout his life and career, never losing sight of his brainchild—even if that brainchild gets into the band’s stash at times. All debaucherous inclinations aside, Shemrok Christ is a lyricist, ripping up stages with rhymes spanning from drug addiction, vivid pop culture, unrequited love, and even conspiracy theory"

Navigating your way through the rap/hip hop music offered today can often be more tragic than triumphant. If you’re looking for new music to listen to, and love supporting independent artists then you’ve come across the right article.
If the Beastie Boys and Sleigh Bells had an illegitimate child, it would be King Shem. I like to describe his music as tripped out hip hop with a lo-fi rock sound. It doesn’t always fit a label, and you certainly can’t try to stuff it into a box. King Shem has been making music for years, starting off as part of the group Cooler Than Smack, then recording solo as King Shemrok Christ, all while managing his label DRC Records. He’s a little bit East coast, a little bit West coast, and constantly evolving. "
