Killer Be Killed

Max Cavalera is a busy man. Already fronting both Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy, he decided to hook up with The Dillinger Escape Plan mainman Greg Puciato in a new project, eventually roping in Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders and Converge drummer Ben Koller and christening the band Killer Be Killed. The guys stated that the sound would bring in influences from all the members, and that's the case, as Killer Be Killed doesn't directly sound like any of the aforementioned bands but fans of said bands would feel at home here. The style is loosely in the metalcore field if a single genre must be named, the songs are harsh and heavy, with clean and metalcore vocals shared equally. The standard side-project disclaimer probably applies here: this is not the main band for anyone here, so this may be a one-off or it may take off and even supercede the other bands.
