This IN-YOUR-FACE metal/core combo started out back in 1998 by Erik Mansson (guitars) and Adrian Westin (vocals), under the name Aggressive Serpent. They were soon joined by Marcus Wesslen (who was forced to play the bass), and influenced by acts such as Meshuggah, Machine Head, Sepultura and Pantera, they locked themselves up in the rehersal room. Long hours of hard work made them find their own way of approaching the scene, and when drummer Conny Petterson (Anata, Eternal Lies) joined the band in 2003, everything raised to a new level. in 2004 Andre Gonzales (By Night) stepped in as a second guitar player and completed the line-up that remain today. When they were about to release their demo "Break the Silence" the band decided to change their name to Trendkill. The demo got a great response from different people and magazines, and was voted best demo in Close-Up (swe) #68. This demo also got Trendkill their deal with Regain Records (Behemoth, Danzig, Overkill, Vader, Dark Funeral a.s.o.) and in the summer of 2005 the band entered Studio Mega to record the debut album "No Longer Buried"!!!
