Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Gravity Kills' third album finds the Missouri-based group striking a perfect balance between rock, metal, and industrial, all the while staying within pop-leaning song structures. Strident rhythms, unrelenting intensity, and processed vocals à la Ministry and Nine Inch Nails are the order of the day, though straight-ahead songs like "Love Sex and Money" display surprisingly few technical bells and whistles despite production by Martin Atkins (Pigface, Ministry). "Fifteen Minutes" (of shame, rather than fame) is catchy and lyrically astute. Jeff Scheel's passionate vocals and keen lyrics elevate even average songs--and there are a few scattered about Superstarved. The standouts include the rousing "One Thing," a fairly true-to-the-original cover of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus," the tortured title track, and the edgy "Wide Awake." These musicians may not be groundbreakers, but Superstarved is an assured outing by a talented quartet. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars Gravity Kills - Superstarved* Review April 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Gravity Kills broke into the music scene with their high powered hit "Guilty" which propelled their debut album up the charts. The song was also featured playing in the background of the David Fincher hit Se7en. GK's self-title album spawned a serious of singles that found their way onto soundtracks and remix albums. The Mortal Kombat soundtrack featured a demo (and edited) version of "Goodbye" while the Lords of Acid created one of their best known remixes with their song "Down," and an even cool remix was released from the song "Blame."
When Gravity Kill's second album, not counting the remix cd Manipulated which featured no new work from the trio, came into stores it was met with high expectations, but those who expected Gravity Kills to escape the Sophomore curse were wrong, and Perversion was a major disappointment to some die-hard GK fans.
Which brings us up to their third release, Superstarved which puts the band back into the so-called saddle that they rode so high upon with Gravity Kills. Superstarved is more of a mix between the guitar-laden first album, and the techno/industrial influenced second release. Superstarved surprising first single "One Thing" is so reminiscent of "Guilty" that you might even mistake them from coming off of the same album together.
"Love, Sex, and Money" sounds eerily like a Marilyn Manson song even by the title. The cover song "Personal Jesus" makes you wonder what CD you actually inserted into your stereo with it's very country guitar, that skips away and makes way for a very hard guitar. Earlier last year Gravity Kills posted demo versions of "Enemy" and "Personal Jesus" for fans to download. A demo version is an unmixed song, and it shows. The new tracks differ quite a bit from the originals even by name.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best album I've heard in a long time! April 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Gravity Kills since their self-titled debut album, and I have met the band many times. If you like industrial rock, nu metal, and techno, but are still a devoted fan of rock and roll, CHECK OUT GK! Fans have waited for this album for a long time, and GK has definitely not disappointed us. Superstarved is an incredible album from start to finish. Although Jeff Scheel's vocals have been compared to Trent Reznor's, don't be fooled. Jeff Scheel is a MUCH better singer and songwriter! His voice is much clearer and melodic. Plus, Scheel and Gravity Kills have an uncanny ability to write songs that have obvious personal meaning, but the lyrics also deftly and powerfully touch listeners simultaneously. "Love, Sex, and Money" seems to be about the enticing, yet dangerous world of materialism. "Take It All Away" seems to be an angst-ridden song about a relationship gone astray due to selfish intentions. "15 Minutes" is one of those wonderfully ambiguous songs that could mean many different things. The lyrics during "Forget Your Name" tell listeners that "everything's fake and nothing is real." "Enemy" seems to be about the desire to remain friends with someone who's slipping away. "Breakdown" is an emotionally-charged track (my third favorite) about a friend who is having some problems and wanting to help them. "Beg and Borrow" (THE BEST TRACK ON SUPERSTARVED) seems to be a evaluation of the way that so many people fall into hollow materialism and find their world crashing around them. It exemplifies GK's masterful ability to artfully flow from the slow and more mellow to more high energy and anger. "One Thing" (my second favorite song) is a hypnotizingly melodic track decribing the spiritual void and agnosticism that many people feel. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars gk's last and best... April 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Throughout the course of their career, Gravity Kills always took a lot of heat for whatever people wanted to dis them about. And they worked hard for everything they did. It culminated in "Superstarved," their last CD, which showed real growth from the band in pretty much all facets of their music.
Pretty much all of the musical aspects on the album sound a bit less polished and glossed over than the unremarkably sterile Perversion. The band makes a serious statement from the first snare shot and power chord of the album on the very traditionally industrial-sounding "love sex and money." It might be a simple progression but they pull it off expertly and with a lot of flourish. When I first heard the scream that closed the chorus I knew the album was going to be all I expected it to be. And Gravity Kills sticks with their basic guitar + drums + keyboards + scream formula for pretty much the whole album, stopping here and there to try something a little different or pick up a different influence. The standouts also include: "fifteen minutes," with very catchy guitars throughout, strong programming and a very powerful chorus; "forget your name," where Duddenhoffer and Firley create a fragmented wall of sound as the bridge of the song and Scheel's carefully honed scream seems to break character for a tiny moment, and you can hear a little bit of pain in there...
