Biography

The bevy of sub-genres associated with heavy metal and hardcore punk have often given birth to one-off partnerships, guest appearances and duets, but rarely is there an entire band assembled with the primary purpose of getting in a room together to watch what happens when their respective creative muses danced, fucked or fought.

KILLER BE KILLED

Customer Reviews

A very lethal combination of talents fused together in a most satisfying way.
P. Nodine
Artists from Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and the legend himself, Mr. Max Cavalera from Soulfly and Sepultura all in one band.

The album is great, i've only listened to it maybe six times so I can give an essay review but from top to bottom I enjoyed it.

The debut album for KILLER BE KILLED has finally landed and it is worth every second of the wait that metal fans have had to endure since the forming of this “supergroup” was announced.Over the years, supergroups have gotten a bad rep for almost never amounting to much outside of fleeting novelty. Of course, you have exceptions — off the top of my head, bands like Down and Murder Construct are nearly as celebrated as the original acts that spawned them — but more often than not, a meeting-of-the-minds in the world of metal tends to come up shorter than the sum of its parts. Fortunately, Killer Be Killed, the new project from Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Troy Sanders (Mastodon), and Dave Elitch (ex-The Mars Volta), is a proper culmination of influences that represents each member’s artistic lineage and talents in a manner that does each act’s legacy justice.

Shades of Soulfly, Dillinger, and Mastodon not only come and go, but intermingle in near self-celebration. Max Cavalera’s patented thrashy groove metal style largely carries Killer Be Killed at its core, accented by Puciato (who also performs guitar) and his background in hardcore and his affinity for thrash. Sanders and Elitch also leave their mark, but it seems clear that they entered the project after many song skeletons were in place. That doesn’t stop them from making song-making contributions or performing ably as a rhythm section, as Sanders’ bass satisfyingly rattles under the action and Elitch has his moments of pure brilliance, as most evidenced during “Twelve Labors.” Outside of the heavier tracks like “I.E.D.,” “Snakes of Jahova,” and “Fire To Your Flag,” Sanders and Puciato are able to concoct brilliantly catchy choruses, few and far between as they are.

Wow, this is great!
Having been a fan of Max Cavalera's for some time, and a fan of Mastodon's work, I was hoping this would be great and it is.
Never really been a fan of The Mars Volta and I've only ever gotten into The Dillinger Escape Plan's EP with Mike Patton.
But I love this new Killer Be Killed album. The mix of vocals and different sounding songs is wonderful.
Max is still the best though and he shines, as always, when his distinctive style explodes at you.
Buy it now!

I'm a huge music collector but I very rarely post reviews on here. Since there are so few reviews posted so far I thought I should speak up. This album is incredible. It really took me by surprise. I am a fan of all four bands represented by Killer Be Killed but you don't have to be into any of them to find something to like here. The sound is very New Wave of American Heavy Metal--not exactly thrash, not exactly hardcore, certainly not death metal, but some kind of very modern combination of the three.

The performances are super tight and the production deserves special note as well: the drumming in particular sounds very "human" and occupies just to right place in the mix for excellent clarity. There is plenty of melody, but make no mistake, this thing gets crushingly heavy. It's often at least as heavy as the latest Soulfly album. This isn't a "watered down" version of anything. If you have only heard the pre-release singles ("Wings of Feather and Wax" and "Face Down"), I would tell you that those songs don't give you the whole picture. Every track is unique and there is not a second of filler.

This project was initially described as a successor to Nailbomb, and although it doesn't sound anything like Point Blank, it is similar to that album in the sense that a collaboration of heavy metal greats have once again come together to create music that is unique, fascinating and enduring.

I heard about this new side-project by Max Cavalera a couple of months ago, and after listening to a couple teasers on the web, I looked forward to getting the album when it was out. I've listened to it several times since I got it, and I'm really digging it. They've done a great job working out the 3 singers and their different styles of singing, the songs are heavy, the riffs are simple yet effective. Really good stuff, as far as I'm concerned.

An all-star lineup superband that from the start peels the paint off the walls and then tears the house down! The music is an onslaught of a genius mixture of screamo, metal, thrash, & doom. You wouldn't think a trio of different style vocals would work but this does in a big way. On wings of feather and wax, melting my marrow, & snakes of jehovah are just a few standouts on this epic collaboration

Hands down one of the most hyped-about and eagerly anticipated new bands not only of the year, but of the entire decade, too, Killer Be Killed is a metal supergroup that almost intimidates the listener with its pending auspiciousness and promises of being great. Comprised of The Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato, Dave Elitch (of The Mars Volta fame), Max Cavalera (of Sepultura/Soulfly/Nailbomb), and Troy Sanders (Mastodon), the kind of music that K.B.K. play should probably first-and-foremost as groove metal, but it is one that utilizes a sludgy guitar tone, thrash metal-derived tempo'ing, and death metal-worthy aural heaviness.

Or, when reading between the lines, they are much like Cavalera Conspiracy (another one of Max Cavalera's side-projects) in that they ultimately come across as a mere mix of the sounds put out by the band members' main projects. Killer Be Killed's eponymous debut, released in 2014, plays like the Mastodon and Mars Volta frontmen (Sanders and Elitch, respectively) came down and laid down some guest vocals to an instrumental soundtrack written by the older-of-the two Cavalera brothers. (The only band that gets shortchanged, here, is TDEP, whose frequent tempo changes and oddball time signatures are noticeably absent.)

But even if creative songwriting and unpredictability are not two of the strong-suits to be heard on "Killer Be Killed," the record is still one that is borderline impossible not to enjoy (at least to some extent). Indeed, no matter what kind of music it may be, it should definitely be chalked-up as an extremely well-played and overall memorable affair, and one that results in exceedingly satisfying and enjoyable listening sessions.
