Calling All Metalheads! Meet Supergroup Killer Be Killed

Killer Be Killed

Supergroups are rarely the sum of their parts, but I’m willing to give this one a shot.

Meet Killer Be Killed, which features Max Cavalera (Sepultura, Soulfly) and The Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato on guitar, bassist Troy Sanders (Mastodon) and drummer David Elitch (The Mars Volta). Cavalera, Puciato and Sanders will all share vocal duties.

Puciato tries to explain the band’s sound, basically saying the band is everything at once but nothing if not metal: “It’s a bit of SABBATH-y doom, a bit of thrash, a bit of hardcore and punk,” while Cavalera expands, “This is a very special project. It’s a one of a kind thing, with a lot of potential. The album is a mix of heavy, fast and melodic songs.”

Nuclear Blast has announced the band’s signing, and Sanders makes it sound like the album is already done after the band has been secretly locked up in a Los Angeles studio. “Having met, created and recorded an album together, this experience has easily exceeded my initial expectations.”

The album will see a release in 2014 with Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira) handling the production and mixing. Can’t wait.
