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.Read more ›
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.

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.

The first seven tracks are mind-blowing. Wonderful arrangements, performances, great melodies and heavy grooves. After that I don't really care for the songs. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Ryan Sayles
