KILLER BE KILLED: New Details On MAX CAVALERA, GREG PUCIATO, TROY SANDERS Supergroup
For a project that has been in the works for about three years now, things finally seem to be moving at a good pace.
The new project featuring legendary metal icon Max Cavalera, The Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato and Mastodon's Troy Sanders has a name now, Killer Be Killed. It has a label, Nuclear Blast Entertainment. And now, it has a first official photo (above) and some new details on the album.
First off, the drummer is confirmed to be David Elitch, formerly of The Mars Volta. As shown in the photo, Greg Puciato is playing guitar and he, Max and Troy all perform vocals in the band. The band is working with metal mega-producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God).
Puciato describes the music as "a bit of SABBATH-y doom, a bit of thrash, a bit of hardcore and punk," while Cavalera describes the music as "a mix of heavy, fast and melodic songs." Puciato asserts that the music sounds like none of the musicians' current projects, and it sounds the least like Dillinger. This is the choice quote from Troy Sanders that sold this album for me:
The electric chemistry was apparent the first time they all assembled. “Having met, created and recorded an album together, this experience has easily exceeded my initial expectations,” says Sanders. “The collective energy and mutual respect for one another eased the entire process and has been very therapeutic for me.”
Killer Be Killed is hoping to finish up work on the album for an early 2014 release. Can we get a demo already?
