Within days of the release of their new protest feature Blood for Blood, Kill Frenzy had their video removed by Youtube, citing violation of community guidelines. The four friends from different musical backgrounds, got together in 2017 to form a raw, energized, fast-paced thrash metal band.

They hope their music can help spread the truth about what is really going on in South Africa.

Blood For Blood – The Video blocked by Youtube

The name Kill Frenzy is inspired by the original Grand Theft Auto video games and although the members are down to earth, the music screams anger, violence and hatred. Reminding you of old school metal, that just doesn’t seem to be around anymore.

The band prides itself ON its origins: The gutters of the Mother City, Cape Town, South Africa.

Not only hitting the local venues with city-wide touring, the band featured at Metal 4 Africa’s WinterFest ​in July of 2018. In September 2018, the band went on tour, headlining 2 nights at Botswana’s annual ​Rock the Nation ​festival alongside Overthrust and Deadline. Stopping over in Johannesburg along the way to play a show there as well.

The band has been very proactive in contributing to building not only the local scene but also building bridges and making friends with bands across the border. Most of the shows played are organised by Frenzy themselves and they have also hosted 4 foreign bands from Botswana and Mozambique.

They also contribute by organising gigs for charity, specifically animal charities, raising a considerable amount of money as well as collecting vast amounts of animal food. The band recently donated all proceeds from their show towards the hospital bills of a fan that was mugged at a metal show.


The band has released three singles so far ​Aggravated Assault​, ​Controlled​ and their latest ​Blood For Blood,​ which pays homage to the current situation in South Africa.

Band members:

∙ ​Carl Retief – Vocals
∙ ​Guthrie Garnham – Guitar
∙ ​Ryan Wentzel – Bass
∙ ​Jeandre Beneke – Drums

Reviews & Features:

The band has featured on numerous radio stations, podcasts, blogs, websites and magazines all around the world.
