Ice Nine Kills
Ice Nine Kills is an American metalcore band from Boston, Massachusetts who are signed to Fearless Records. Formed in its earliest incarnation in 2006 by high school friends Spencer Charnas and Jeremy Schwartz, the group originally pursued a style combining pop punk, emo, post-hardcore and ska into their own innovative blend of rock but have since shifted into more of an experimental metalcore hybrid.
To date, Ice Nine Kills has released three EPs: The Burning, 2 Song Acoustic and The Predator. Four full-length studio albums: Last Chance to Make Amends, Safe Is Just a Shadow, The Predator Becomes the Prey, and their most successful album to date Every Trick in the Book which peaked at #122 on the US Billboard 200. Their band name is derived from the fictional substance ice-nine from the science fiction novel Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.
