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

When you look this on paper everything fits except Max Cavalera. But when you listen to it, it just works. The opening track is spectacular. Greg's voice (Pusciato-Dillenger Escape Plan) steals the show. The other great thing about this album is it doesn't sound like Mastodon, Dillenger Escape Plan or Soulfly. These musicians are phenominal and the songs are well structured and way more catchy than you would think. The opener Wings of Feather and Wax is awesome, great song. Face Down and Snakes of Jehovah showcases the talents of all these musicians. I have never really liked the "supergroup" and most of the time they aren't that good. But this group is probably the best since Mad Season.Check this album out. Awesome to see these guys come together and make great music.
