Kamikaze Zombie was formed in Birmingham Alabama, by founding member and New Orleans native Clint Spain in 2014. He and a few longtime friends started jamming first just as fun and later they became more serious. These jam sessions would become Kamikaze Zombie. In late 2015, Kamikaze Zombie started to make moves coining the term “Horror Crossover” to describe their sound, they would play only three local shows, before they landed their first local opening slot for international act Decapitated. This show opened the door for Kamikaze Zombie and in 2016 Kamikaze Zombie kicked off their first tour playing the southeast, as well as playing a slew of local shows and opening for more national acts. Despite a revolving door of member changes, largely due to members not wanting to tour at the level KZ wanted to work, moving forward with the motto “nothing stops the KZ train”. Kamikaze Zombie entered the studio for the first time in 2017 to record their first album “Night of the Nuberus” recorded by Matt Washburn, (who is best known for recording the band Mastodon ), at Leadbelly Sound Studio in Dawsonville Georgia. Despite not being signed to a major label, Kamikaze Zombie, with the help of Clawhammer PR, were able to obtain radio play and magazine reviews in various countries worldwide. Throughout 2017, Kamikaze Zombie continuously toured playing anywhere and everywhere. In 2018 Kamikaze Zombie released their first music video for the song " The Story of Jane Doe," directed and filmed by 1931 Productions, which currently has over 100k views. They also, returned to work with Washburn and Leadbelly Sound Studio to record their second album. On May 25, 2019 “The Destroyer of All things” was released.
In Feb of 2020 Kamikaze Zombie Played their last show due to Covid-19 with Child Bite. In March of 2020 they cancelled their three-week west coast tour, that was planning to be their biggest tour to date, this tour included show dates with, Today is the Day, Pro-pain and Child Bite. Despite the hardships of COVID-19, Kamikaze Zombie brought in Trevor Edwards on Drums, Oliver Stansell on bass and continued to remain focused by appearing in a YouTube interview for “The Wrestling Diaries,” as well as on a podcast titled “The Mosh Pit.” They released a lyric Video for the song “Into the Nothing” off their last full length “The Destroyer of All Things” and released a New Year’s Eve “LIVE” stream via YouTube. On Halloween of 2020 Kamikaze Zombie released a five song covers EP (recorded at Leadbelly) titled “Fiends of The Night” which paid tribute to some of their favorite hardcore/crossover acts like, Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, Crowbar, Negative Approach and HateBreed. Other influences of Kamikaze Zombie include: Superjoint, Slayer, Pantera, Black Flag, Municipal Waste, Soilent Green, and The Black Dahlia Murder. Currently Kamikaze Zombie is writing songs for their next full-length album. but not without hardship On New Years of 2021 longtime guitarist Steve Cater and Kamikaze Zombie parted ways. But in pure Kamikaze Zombie fashion they were able to persevere bring in longtime friend Lee Kader on guitar. Since shows have picked up, post pandemic, Kamikaze Zombie has gotten back to work in a big way, playing festivals and touring with such bands as Yatra and Nest. Spending a year under the management of John Jarvis of Pig Destryer, Scour and Nest, Kamikaze Zombie was able to capitalize on the opportunity by making countless lifetime connections and friendships.
Through extreme perseverance and an undying work ethic, along with the overwhelming support of the Crude Mutants (what they call their fans), Kamikaze Zombie has had the opportunity to open for many national and international acts such as Phil H Anselmo and the Illegals, Dark Funeral, Belphegor, Cavalera Conspiracy, SuperJoint, Crowbar, Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore, The Black Dahlia Murder, Eyehategod, Power Trip, Obituary, and Gatecreeper just to name a few. As well as playing Festivals such as Full Terror Assault, Devastation On The Nation, Southern Brutality Metal fest, and Dimestock. They have also independently toured the United States multiple times.
