At XS Noize, new music is dear to our hearts and we believe that genuinely talented fresh artists deserve a platform to share their material with the world. As such, we will now be showcasing one unsigned act every week, hand picked from submissions by Tom Day for the world to hear. Great news for all you audiophiles out there, but more importantly for those who’s voices deserve to be lifted from the crowd.
This week XS NOIZE Unsigned Presents – Kill for Eden
Kill for Eden
For fans of:
Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Soundgarden
In their words:
Kill For Eden are a London-based hard rock band formed by guitarist Dave Garfield and vocalist Lyla D'Souza. Lyla is a rock/soul singer songwriter who has performed in the UK, Europe and Australia. Dave has lived and worked in Amsterdam and Cologne, recorded for EMI Germany and BMG Germany and has gigged and recorded all over Europe playing many festivals and TV shows and supported major artists on tour such as Joe Cocker, Rammstein and Die Arzte. Londoner Mike McGuinness plays bass guitar and Wally Miroshnikov is on Drums.
Building from classic foundations in the form of Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, Kill For Eden take their influences from the The Cult’s solid riffs, Blondie’s instant melody and Garbage‘s contemporary mix of pop hooks and rebel attitude. The band have been gigging around England promoting their debut album which has achieved airplay across Europe on XFM & Bloodstock Radio in the UK, Scandanavian and Spanish national radio stations and regional radio across the UK and Germany. Their latest release was a 3 song EP ‘Living On Mars’.

Why Tom chose Kill for Eden for the showcase:
They stood out from a long list of people doing similar things Kill for Eden have taken a classic approach and built on it. The riff from Kerosene has lodged itself firmly in my head all week! It’s nice to hear someone creating some 70’s style rock riffs and soulful vocals with a new edge and blistering metal solos.
