I am guessing — and this is only a guess — that this band’s moniker was forged by taking two last names, and putting them together.
Like Marilyn Manson, only cooler. In this case, I am guessing the band is named after comedians Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, who are both dead — sadly — but worked together in Texas early on in their careers.
If this is, indeed, true, I already love this band.
Hicks Kinison is the hardcore metal project featuring Shane Embury of Napalm Death and Brujeria’s Chris Paccou.
The band further boasts Roel Klomp, formerly of Born From Pain, and former We Are The Damned vocalist Sofia Magalhaes.
This is pretty cool, man. No word yet on when they’ll have an album out, but we will keep you posted.
And now, here’s classic video footage of Bill Hicks — one of the funniest motherfuckers to ever walk this dying rock — going off on a heckler.
