Killer Be Killled - Reluctant Hero [Clear w/ Black & White Splatter] (New Vinyl LP)
Three men possessed of some of the most recognizable voices in heavy music split front-man duty for Killer Be Killed. Max Cavalera, Greg Puciato, and Troy Sanders are boundary pushers and innovators in their respective bands, born and bred in different cities and tempered by their respective projects, each one is an equal participant in the fresh ceremony of inspired ritual, together with Ben Koller, one of the most beloved drummers in heavy music. Inventive in spirit and decisive in execution, Killer Be Killed sound borderline esoteric at times and yet remain unrelenting in heaviness and groove. Like it's self-titled predecessor, the 11-song RELUCTANT HERO was produced and mixed in Southern California by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Megadeth, Gojira). It's an assemblage of aggressive compositions that blends basement-show worthy carnage and massive festival-ready hooks, anchored in smart, dissident sensibilities, and raw authenticity.
