Horror-Themed Metal Band Ice Nine Kills Launch Charity T-Shirt To Aid Musicians
We wanted to let our readers know about a charity project horror-themed metalcore outfit Ice Nine Kills have launched. For the uninitiated: the band’s latest album, 2018’s The Silver Scream features 13 songs, each paying a loving homage to classic horror movies like A Nightmare On Elm Street, Halloween, Friday The 13th, IT, The Shining, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and more. Check out a couple of their videos below.
The band, like most of the music industry, has been hit hard by Coronavirus and they’re trying to do their bit to help raise money for those in the same boat. They’ve released a limited edition shirt featuring Michael Myers, Ghostface and Jason Vorhees, proceeds from which will go towards the Grammy backed charity MusiCares and their Covid-19 Musicians Relief Fund and Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. Both organizations help artists and those who work with them in times of financial need.

Speaking on the special design and its purpose, INK frontman and creative force, Spencer Charnas says:
“The world is a scary place right now for everyone. In our corner of the music industry we are seeing the touring personnel that work closely with INK and other bands like us, lose their entire income stream in a matter of days. But like a resilient young coed fighting back against a masked killer in a final act bloodbath, the music business isn’t going out without a fight. Ice Nine Kills is proud to do its part, slashing back at the virus by partnering with two important charities — Sweet Relief and Music Cares — to release a special t-shirt which will generate income to send aid to those who need your help. A portion of the proceeds of this new, limited edition design will be donated to those charities and portion shall be used to support INK’s own displaced tour crew. Let’s mobilize the power of the amazing INK psychos to ensure the real carnage stays where it belongs – on The Silver Scream.”
About the Band:
In a landscape littered with celebrity fakes and would-be influencers, Ice Nine Kills stand apart. Visionary trailblazers and multimedia raconteurs, INK has steadily built a thrilling new underworld for a growing legion of devoted true believers, with theatrical shows, high-concept videos, and inventive band-to-fan communion. Ice Nine Kills summon the most captivating elements of metal, punk and hard rock and combine it with melody, cinematic obsession, and a literary fascination.
Loudwire hails them as “one of the most unique acts in metal right now,” a declaration supported by the band’s Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart topping slab, The Silver Scream.
The Silver Scream and the subsequent extended edition, The Silver Scream: Final Cut generated anthems for the disenfranchised and subculture obsessives, like The American Nightmare, A Grave Mistake and Savages and broke them into Active Rock radio, with hit track A Grave Mistake peaking at #9.
After a decade of studio wizardry and live theatricality, Ice Nine Kills draws favorable comparisons to rock icons like Slipknot, Rob Zombie, and Marilyn Manson, via a likeminded synergy of music, lifestyle, and cult following reverence. With 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify, a combined social media reach of over 762k and over 70 million views on Youtube, the band are firmly cemented as one of modern metal’s most ferocious forces.
