Listen. You've got the legendary Max Cavalera of various metal acts on guitar and vocals, as well as Greg Puciato of The Dillinger Escape Plan, you've got Troy Sanders of Mastodon on bass and vocals, and you've got Ben Koller of Converge on drums. If you're a metal fan and you aren't at least aware of half those names you have sorely limited your metal scope. All three vocalists are exceptional for the genre with distinct voices of their own, and each of them take turns holding the spotlight ... read more

HOLY SHITRBHEHDGWGWG

YES THIS WAS ABSOLUTELY WORTH THE SIX YEAR WAIT

I just... oh man. I’ll write a proper review soon, I need to hear this some more..

Edit: okay. I think they’ve solidified themselves as strong and very much useful band in the groove, alt, thrash, and just metal in general, world. A really tight four piece, each member brings something fresh to the table, whether the thunderous vocals from Gone Is Gone, and Mastodon’s very own Troy Sanders, the harsh, ... read more

I was waiting for this record to drop and waiting to finally hear it. Now that I did, oh man... It's one of the best Metal albums of this year no doubt

Killer Be Killed is one of the many supergroups that are known in the Metal genre. Sadly, most of them are all hype and just a few deliver the musical proposals that we as fans might expect, but I looked at Killer Be Killed and their all-star line-up and I said to myself: "This guys can't go wrong". And they didn't go wrong at all. ... read more

I get that where you draw the line is subjective with this brand of metal but this to me is more corny than cool.

I don't know if this be my genre, i like the album , it has some powerful songs the second part is better than the first one. sometimes i feel i was listening to killswitch engage of any metalcore band.

Killer Be Killed is such a real supergroup. Not just 3 Rage Against The Machine members and Chris Cornell (I do love Audioslave though), that’s not really a supergroup. But this band, has 4 unique members, that’s a real supergroup.

Every song was top notch and I could easily see me ranking this even higher when I get more used to the songs.

Who would've thought that the coolest sounding lineup would make, as somebody said... sub par "bro metal."

Couple decent tracks though.... Overall disappointed.

I heard we got some good new thrash so I gave this album a listen. Pleasantly surprised to find out Max Cavalera is involved! As for the songs, the album is pretty consistent, but I find straight up thrash to be too repetitive. Having said that, the album comes with some interesting grooves, awesome riffs and catchy melodies. My favourite of the bunch would be Left of Center, Comfort From Nothing, Dead Limbs and Reluctant Hero. The last two especially were my favourites. Didnt care much for ... read more
