Kill II This achieved some minor cult popularity during their existence. The band emerged from the ashes of China Beach, who split up in late 1994 after one EP and one album at the end of a tour with German Band Running Wild. By the time of their fourth and last album, 2003's mass.(down.)-sin.(drone), the band had gone through two member overhauls, guitarist Mark Mynett being the sole original member. Eventually the band broke up, with Mynett, along with several other British musicians in a new band called City Of God.
Mark Mynett was a Senor Lecturer in Music Technology & Production at the University of Huddersfield and currently resides in Stockport, England with his pet dog Lucy. Mynett has recently had the cover feature published in November 2009's issue of Sound on Sound magazine where he discusses 'Extreme Metal Production'. Mynett still actively produces albums from his studio in Huddersfield, England.
In late 2014 Kill II This reformed with the original line-up of Mark Mynett, Pete Stone (bass), Jeff Singer (drums) and Simon Gordon (City Of God) on vocals. They are currently working on new material and played a live gig in the Belgian music Festival 'La Fiesta Du Belgium' on 16 October 2014. The first two tracks to be named are "Coma Karma" and "Sleeper Cell."
Mynett said in an interview with French metal site Metal Sickness that the new material will be akin to the "Deviate" album and sound, with a modern feel.
