In case you aren’t familiar with recent developments, Killer Be Killed — featuring Soulfly‘s Max Cavalera, The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s Greg Puciato, Mastodon‘s Troy Sanders, and former The Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch — actually lives up to its “supergroup” status, measuring up to be the sum of its parts. I said as much in my review over at Metalsucks, concluding that their debut album is “a proper culmination of influences that represents each member’s artistic lineage and talents in a manner that does each legacy act justice.” In short, the album doesn’t suck. We’re closer to Down than Hellyeah on the metal supergroup spectrum here.
Now, you can hear the album for yourself! Killer Be Killed’s self-titled debut is streaming in full exclusively at Metalsucks. If you’re strapped for time, be sure to listen to ‘Wings of Feather and Wax’ if you’re in the mood for something outrageously catchy and ‘Fire To Your Flag’ for an example of how chaotic and heavy the album can get.
The album will hit stores in North America on May 13th. If you like what you hear, pre-order the record via Nuclear Blast.
