Over the years, supergroups have gotten a bad rep for disappointing fans. Even if the lineup is crazy, they either don’t mesh well together or they just don’t write good music. This is not the case for Killer Be Killed, the new supergroup featuring the likes of Max Cavalera (Soulfly, ex-Sepultura), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan), Troy Sanders (Mastodon), and Dave Elitch (ex-The Mars Volta). Even though the bands these members come from each have distinct sounds they are famous for, they manage to blend together nicely, making something new and exciting. The album that came from this juggernaut of a lineup consists of many different styles, from crushing and heavy as fuck to catchy and even a little melodic. You can definitely hear the bits and pieces of Soulfly, Mastodon, or Dillinger throughout their music, which is what makes it so fucking amazing.
Killer Be Killed’s heavily anticipated debut album comes out, May 13 on Nuclear Blast, but you can stream the entire thing right now courtesy of MetalSucks.
