Hailing from Perth, Western Australia; Kimura are a straight up, unapologetic heavy metal band, known for putting on entertaining, engaging and dynamic live shows. Comprising of lyricist vocalist - Josh Kelly, riff machine guitarist, Ian McAllister, bottom end slapping bass player, Kyle Baker, and grooving drum basher, Gordo Steinberger; Kimura get heads banging and horns flying.

With all band members growing up with different genres and styles of metal, Kimura have fused their common heavy influences of Whitechapel, Devildriver, Lamb of God, Slipknot & Pantera, into the one audible assault they have become now.  

Kimura's 3rd release, Euthanize Sterilize, along with their new vocalist, saw the band take on a heavier direction which was well received & welcomed by their dedicated fans and has substantially and continually grown since.

Having played extensively across Western Australia, as well as picking up radio play both locally & internationally, Kimuras soon to be 4th release, ‘Circle The Prey’, is set to be their heaviest and most personal album to date,  incorporating real life stories and the raw nature of the world we live in both internally and externally.
