Kicks joy Darkness













This is the official website of Kicks joy Darkness, a London based band that was destroyed on November 8th, 2001, when Anno (guitar/vocals), Lee (bass) and Alberto (drums) were all killed in a car crash on a Milan motorway. Apart from the sole remaining member (vocalist/guitarist Billy Scherer, AKA Bocephus Prime), all that is left of the band is their inspiring, devastating, ferocious, symphonic, genre-defying music. Listen to it.

NB: This website was designed by Anno and his webmaster Nao Yoshino in 2001, hence much of it has been deliberately left as it was. The pages that have been updated with new material include the songs page, where you can listen to all of KjD's tracks.
