Cannon fodder: 14 songs (plus 2 bonus) Released on 21st of May 2012. Helsinki, Finland.

First step of Kill the Kell. The album is a homage to the people who in 2011, headed the 15M movement in Madrid, Spain. The back cover and fonts are a display of it. The sound is very raw and simple though powerful. Easy to listen, the depth is more attached to the ideas than the music. References to war, ocultism, sex, cults, death, etc. Involving also interesting stories; an imposible romance between the author and a ghost, a Napoleon’s soldier who in the name of freedom noticed that he became the enemy and will drink absinthe until death, a depressed prostitute in any corner fighting for her life, an “anti-love” song, a porn song… are just few of them. The bonus tracks are 2: A faster version of “Roll K.O” and “Namaste” which were included apart of the piece itself, but intends to offer some instrumental beauty shaped into a piano piece, among so much dark and twisted pieces of work. “Cannon fodder” is a shout that Kill the Kell is alive and heartbeating.

Trip to nowhere: 36 songs, double album. Released on 12th of December 2012. Tenerife, Spain.

“Trip to nowhere” is more personal instead, more complex and musically richer. Puts together more elements than before, diving into the loneliness to be a traveller and an observer of the world that runs around as a crazy movie. This is a result of the experience in the streets of Finland, telling personal and told stories. Kill the Kell never would be the same after this experience. In return to this, is released a beautiful piano piece called “Northern lights (Enlightenment)” as a homage to Scandinavia. Besides, it is a display of a proliphic number of songs as an assortment of sensations and a bohemian whole piece of work itself.

Voice from underneath34 songs, double album. Released on 15th of March 2014. London, England.

The last piece of work (the most personal and hybrid), is a collection of new material and old pieces released in 2010. It is a demo released under the name of Damian Silva, entitled as “Entrance not for everybody” in homage to the winner of the Nobel price in literature in 1946, Hermann Hesse. As a sort of prolongation of it, “Voice from underneath” includes another Hesse reference in the title of the instrumental song “Magic theatre”, though also includes other literary extracts from Franz Kafka and George Orwell. It is an album of hundred faces, which experiments even more variety about music and stories, that many were told and many were lived through the period of time in the amazing jungle of London. With features of Norbert Pereira, Max Escudero, Kristina Maier and Pascale Ruppel.

Roots of Kill the Kell – B-sides & outtakes (2002 – 2014): 53 songs, triple album. Released on 16th. of December 2016. Tenerife, Spain.

As a collection of unpublished pieces of music, “Roots of Kill the Kell” brings the old material into light. Songs that have never been shown before due to a lack of quality, poor performance or just because were not considered appropiate then. Whatever the reason was to put it aside, now everybody can listen to it in this triple album. The album number I and II are a mix of own songs along the period 2002 – 2014, which many were composed before Kill the Kell was born (2012). The album number III is a summary of covers from a variety of artists universally famous like The beatles, The rolling stones or Bob Marley. Besides, includes a bunch of cult artists who are not so known in the mainstream but the same talented, just like Bert Jansch, Jackson C. Frank or Woody Guthrie. The entire triple album was possible thanks to the collaboration of excellent guests like Cristina Caballero, Sergio Sepúlveda, Monika Kopanská, Oscar Rilo Vázquez and Shevaun Hamilton. Also words from Jaroslav Seifert, who won the Nobel price in literature in 1984 are included in “NATO blitzkrieg”.

Serendipitous glimpse in darkness: 10 songs. Released on 17th. of July 2017. Tenerife, Spain.

This is a piano and orchestra collection shaped as a movie soundtrack piece. This album is focused in instrumental music except for few songs. A peculiar album from KTK, in which could not be found any guitar note or scream, along the more than fifty recorded minutes. It makes emphasis on darkness with the music, but also the lyrics is an important issue with “Gloomy Sunday”: Known world wide as the hungarian suicide song, written in hungarian by Rezső Seress and László Jávor and adapted in english by Sam M. Lewis. For sixty years, the song was banned by the BBC until in 2002 finally was lifted. Then we can listen to the Bob Dylans kick with “A hard rain’s a gonna fall” and misery of war. A noisy badass blues that makes you recover after “Gloomy Sunday”. then, the third pillar that this record stands on, is “Bela Lugosi’s dead”. Known as the harbinger of gothic rock music, so is considered the first and most influencial song of the goth movement. Written by the english band Bauhaus in 1979, and making a very clear homage to the story from Bram Stocker, Dracula. The album so, It connects this three pillars with other songs, not especially very lyrical but the same sensitive with the last but no the least, “Mephisto finale”. A clear homage to the master piece from Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, “Faust”.

Hades Nostrum: 5 songs. Released on 1st. of October 2018. Tenerife, Spain. 

This work from Kill the Kell has the shortest length and it exposes the crisis of the refugees all over the world. The core of this material is about the crisis on the Mediterranean sea, very well known as Mare Nostrum during the roman empire, it diversed by the author in Hades Nostrum instead. The greek term Hades (underground, sort of place to rest for the deads) plus the latin term Nostrum (ours) it turns the meaning of “Our sea” into “Our cemetery”, in an obvious intention to stand out the victims along the Mediterranean sea, all of them just because of terror and misery from other human beings. In a way and once more, beauty turned into horror. Musically very acoustic and running in midtempos, with no drums but only a subtle percussion and ambient background. A cover from Jackson C. Frank is worthy to mention, his beautiful song “October” almost at the end of the piece.

Mientras nos quede aire: 10 canciones. Estreno el 27 de Septiembre 2019. Tenerife, España. 

Por primera vez, Kill the Kell presenta un disco cantado íntegramente en español. Su contenido, comprometido y de marcado carácter popular, es un homenaje a aquellos que han defendido los derechos humanos incluso en los momentos más adversos de la historia universal. “Mientras nos quede aire” es un canto a favor de la unión de los pueblos, y de un alzamiento en contra de el sistema que destruye la dignidad de las personas, la naturaleza y la sensibilidad entre mortales. Un sistema que promueve competir en lugar de compartir, que alimenta a la eliminación de competencia, en lugar de un aprendizaje y un apoyo mutuo. Su eclecticismo musical hace que convivan en un mismo disco; la canción popular, la música clásica y otras pinceladas de música exclusiva del siglo XX, como el boogie woogie, el blues o el rock. Entre las diez canciones, hay dos que no son completamente de su autoría: La primera es “Los gallos”, que fue escrita originalmente por el cantautor Chicho Sánchez Ferlosio. Esta vez Kill the Kell muestra una versión mucho más melódica a piano y orquesta, transformándola en una pieza más clásica que popular. Una segunda canción, denominada “La brizna encendida”, utiliza la melodía compuesta por José Melchor Gomis para dar vida a una nueva poesía. Melodía también conocida como la del “Himno de Riego”, un alegre pasaje musical que intenta evocar el ideal popular de la clase trabajadora española. Con una innegable influencia en su forma y en su fondo, Kill the Kell hace su propia versión. En este caso, al contrario de lo que sucedería con “Los gallos”, le quita toda orquesta y la desnuda hasta dejarla en una sencilla melodía popular, al paso de la gente común.

20 & 20 Stories: 40 canciones. Released on 20th. of Februeary 2020. Tenerife, Spain. 

“20 & 20 Stories” is a compound of songs from Kill the Kell, which can be the best way to describe the hard work of this project during the period of 2012 – 2020. Kill the Kell wants to thank all the supporters in any way along this tough way. All this music was never meant to make it for money, but for the pleasure and satisfaction of giving the best that Damian Silva could ever offered.  Hopefully, It could positively influenced on those who were insterested in the project. Everything was just an intention to make you think, to make you feel human, and to turn this huge crazy world into a better thing. At the end, this was just a trip.
