The whirlwind of heavy, fast, melodic, thrashy, and often meditative bombast, with sparks of hardcore punk, summoned by KILLER BE KILLED is the formidable and inevitable result of the sum of its parts, whose combined discography warped and shaped the culture. Three men possessed of some of the most recognizable voices in heavy music split frontman duty. Boundary pushers and innovators, 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 one of the most beloved drummers in the genre.
Killer Be Killed began when Max and Greg first got together for a 72-hour writing session in the Arizona desert. (Demos were recorded with the same drum machine and four-track Max used working on Chaos A.D.) Puciato recruited Troy into the new band and by 2013, they were in the studio making their self-titled debut album. Koller came in just in time for the band’s inaugural live performances in 2015. A follow-up album, Reluctant Hero, arrived in late 2020.
KILLER BE KILLED is the sound of the specific chemistry in the room when these guys are together. KILLER BE KILLED is inevitable.
