3.5 greatInsurrection CONTRIBUTOR | May 13th 14

Finally a supergroup that doesn't suck hairy taint

0.0 Daken | May 9th 14

Hearing a verse sung by Troy Sanders that goes into a chorus sung by Greg Puciato, and vice versa, is a cream dream.

3.0 goodJames G | April 22nd 14

Way better than the tracks released prior suggest. The riffs are powerful as fuck and Greg's vocals have improved yet again!

3.5 greatMarchelloZ | April 24th 14

Patchwork of ideas that don't always match together well. Overall one of the better supergroup albums to date.

4.0 excellentInFiction | April 23rd 14

Honestly, it's really refreshing to hear a supergroup that actually sounds like an equal divide between the musicians. Everyone here gets their moment in the spotlight, making it a varied listen without sacrificing the sense of identity it builds for itself over its 45 minute runtime.

4.0 excellentPostMesmeric | May 17th 14

This doesn't sound like I thought it would, but I ended up enjoying it big time. The diversity between Troy, Max and Greg's vocals gives the songs lots of twists in tone, all while offering some really heavy riffs and mind-blowingly fluid rhythms. Don't let the radio-friendly opener fool you; this is heavy stuff from one of the best metal supergroups to appear in a while.

Wow, way better than expected, and Forbidden Fire is an amazing closer.

Melting Of My Marrow is a fucking awesome song. I love this band.

4.5 superbultradevilgod | May 9th 14

This is what supergroups should sound like, the combination of their sound and influences into one kick-ass album! This will be one of the best releases of 2014.\m/

4.0 excellentPrefrontalCortex | February 26th 15

What can i say? A super group like this doesn't come around very often, and this group just happen to bring the fire along with them on this guitar shredding ride! The chorus to "Wings Of Feather In Wax" is one you're not going be disappointed with. That goes with most of the album as well, most of the songs are enjoyable to listen to with the odd miss here and there. A fan of any of these members individual bands would be a fool to not at least listen to this album once.

2.5 averagecryptside | August 22nd 14

Killer Be Killed did nothing for me as a listener, unfortunately. With almost no
experience with any of the past bands associated with this endeavor (besides Mastodon, of
course), I didn't have any expectations going into listening to this. First song and single
"Wings of Feather and Wax" is a melodic masterpiece, employing one of the catchiest choruses
of the year and an extremely listenable solo. The biggest downfall of that song in
particular also points to the overarching problem in general; Max Cavalera's involvement
drags the album down considerably. His vocals are laughable and pale in comparison to the
contribution made by Troy Sanders and Greg Puciato. However, the best performance on this
album goes to drummer Dave Elitch, who provides fast-paced and enjoyable fills. There simply
aren't any highlights on Killer Be Killed; it is essentially an album filled with
great moments that aren't fleshed out in any way. It's good for a few listens here and
there, but mostly this album is a wasted opportunity from a talented group of musicians.

Bump

3.5 greatMasBarHigeuoris21 | June 24th 14

This was a lot better than I expected. Didn't expect the different genres that each of these men bring to the table to mesh that well. Glad I was wrong.

Bump

4.0 excellentTunaboy45 | June 22nd 14

Definitely how a supergroup should be. A mix of the styles of each member's bands. Troy
tries some harsher vocals and Greg does a few cleans, meaning that it isn't too samey and
they go out of their comfort zones. And Max... well Max is Max. Highlights are Wings Of
Feather And Wax and the fantastic Melting Of My Marrow. No one really knows whether this
will simply be a one off project or not. Either way, this is an album that will be
remembered as a supergroup done right.

Bump

3.0 goodMuZack95 | June 5th 14

Great band dynamic, not so great songs.

Bump

4.0 excellentblueriver | May 18th 14

I love the way each singer got their chance in the spotlight, it kept the songs feeling fresh.

Bump

3.5 greatBRAman22 | May 15th 14

There are some pretty good songs on here, but a lot of songs sound kind of generic too.

Bump

Bump

3.5 greatILJ | May 13th 14

Some of these tracks are great and hard hitting, and others just sound like a poor mishmash of ideas. And I wish Puciato had handled most of the vocal duties.

Bump

4.0 excellent3ddie | May 12th 14

solid and surprising, this album turned out something greater than I thought.

Bump

3.5 greatsapient | May 9th 14

Best post-Sepultura Max Cavelera project? Yeah, probably. The dueling lead vocal dynamic of Greg, Troy, and rMax really makes this stand out, with the overall musicianship between everyone sounding undeniably tight for a rnew band. A very pleasant surprise

Bump

4.0 excellentBaseballJames | May 9th 14

Fuckin' excellent riffing and drumming. And the vocals kick ass too. Great stuff.

Bump

3.0 goodtg103 | May 8th 14

Does a surprising job of sounding like a combination of the members' previous work, yet somehow fresh. Not as proggy as expected and sometimes quite unengaging.
