Supergroups! What’s the deal with them? I honestly don’t know, as most of them are disappointed to say the least (I’m looking at you, Adrenaline Mob). However, the rare gem does present itself and Killer Be Killed is a fine example. Consisting of Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Juan Montoya (MonstrO), Max Cavalera (Soulfly), Troy Sanders (Mastodon) and, for this performance only, Ben Koller of Converge on the drums, this band is a who’s who list of metal. And they sound damn good. Apparently, they can also pull their weight on the stage as recent footage of Australia’s Soundwave Festival shows. Head on below the jump for the video!
Despite the fan quality of the video, it shows not only a very much on point Killer Be Killed but also an enthusiastic crowd. The drums especially sound good but is that a surprise to anyone? Another high point for me is Sanders who sounds exceptional, his distinct voice offering a much needed counterpoint to Puciato’s screams. Hopefully I get to see them live myself one day!
