Florida’s deathcore act Kill The Imposter have a new single out “Dongan Hills” in support of their upcoming album “The Violence Sessions”. Those who have seen KTI live know that the band brings non-stop energy and that vocalist Johnny Nobody can be seen swinging from the rafters or jumping from bar to bar, but this vigor isn’t restrained to the live show, it can be felt on their recordings and in their music videos and this new single is no exception.
Dongan Hills is the second track off the pumping new album, it is named after a place in Staten Island, NY that Nobody would take a train to and try to escape life, but he’d always end up getting in more trouble.
The band states, «Coming straight from societies raw emotions right now the video depicts the feeling of never feeling safe. Directed by and filmed by Johnny Nobody and some edits from the Tony Trip Kill the Imposter will continue in any situation to bring you the real, raw , heavy deathcore you crave. Thank you for watching!».
The Violence Sessions are the third release from KTI, following 2019’s The Decimation and 2020’s A Strain Of Agony EP. Reflecting back to earlier work, Nobody quotes about the band’s evolution:
«I think the four of us come from not insanely different places, but different enough that we had to create our own sound. I mean, we didn’t invent the wheel for sure, but I think me trying to put my NYHC roots in everything helped guide the boat a bit. So at the beginning very simple beat-down riffs moved to a now more guided route. I mean we had to figure out who we were and weren’t».
KTI don’t half-ass anything, each song they write starts with a riff and gets hammered to precision until they can wait to play it in a set. According to them, «when we get those goosebumps listening back to demos – that’s when we know it’s ready for the masses to enjoy».
Angry and heavy, Kill The Imposter is recommended listening for fans of Bodysnatcher, Emmure, and Thy Art is Murder.

Kill The Imposter is an Orlando, USA-based deathcore band that was formed in late 2018. Pulling musical inspiration from everywhere, the intention of this four-piece band is to make you move in any capacity you see fit.
Coming from local and national bands, Kill The Imposter brings experience, drive, and mayhem, to the stage. The quartet banded together over a shared love for heavy and violent music, after sharing the stage for one song they knew they had something special, so they sat down together and within a week had 3 songs written and a video lined up. They haven’t stopped since that first sit down, and they won’t stop.
One of the founding members Danny Arrieta (guitar) is the primary music writer getting help with arrangement by Johnny Nobody (vocals). Nick Colvin (drums) carries the aggressive speed and heavy grooves with Wilson Bembry ( bass) definitely sharing and blending the thundering lows and technical playing between all of it.
Since they got together, Kill The Imposter has released The Decimation” (2019), A Strain Of Agony (2020) and The Violence Sessions (2021). They have pummeled the stages of Central Florida Metal Fest and Tampa DeathFest and played alongside heavy hitters such as Nile and Terrorizer.
