Max Cavalera, Greg Puciato, Dave Elitch and Troy Sanders. When you say these names, you instantly think of bands like Soulfly, Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Mars Volta. Never in a million years did I think that they’d form a supergroup, well they did and called it Killer be Killed. They took some time to write songs and record an album and now they’re getting ready to release this album on us.
The self-titled debut is an absolute masterpiece. The album is a mixture between Groove Metal, Thrash Metal and Hardcore Punk. Max Cavalera, Greg Puciato and Troy Sanders share all the vocal duties on the album. I know, you’re thinking how can this work? Trust me it does, their voices compliment each other so much, that I can’t believe they didn’t do it sooner. Max and Greg are also a dream duo in regards to the guitaring on the album and the drum and bass duties are executed perfectly throughout the whole album.
All in all this is one of the best albums I’ve heard in a very long time, I can’t stop listening to it. This is the perfect example of a perfect album and this is how an album should sound. This is a fast and heavy album that is filled with surprises.
From the opening track till the closing track this album thrusts into your mind and takes over. The vocals, guitaring, drumming and bass on this album is flawless. I know you still probably think it’s to good to be true. You’ll have to take my word for it and get the album. You won’t regret buying extra copies of this album!!! Get it on Vinyl too, it’s a must for any collection.

I'm a crazy and random individual who loves making and listening to music, partying, playing live shows, hanging out with friends and VINYL. Music is my passion, I eat, sleep and breathe music. I play drums for the band Conquering Chaos (a Hard Rock band with a Nu Metal twist from South Africa). My favourite genre is Swedish Melodic Death Metal. I love bands like In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Soilwork, At the Gates etc etc etc.
