Killer Be Killed―the new supergroup featuring Max Cavalera (Soulfly and formerly of Sepultura), Troy Sanders (Mastodon), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan) and Dave Elitch (The Mars Volta)―have posted lengthy updates in regards to their upcoming debut album, which is due for release next year on Nuclear Blast.
Greg Puciato on the album, “We [Puciato and Cavalera] did the song on Soulfly’s ‘Omen’ and then we started talking about doing an entire album together, the way he had with Alex Newport. We eventually got together with some riffs we both had and wrote a bunch more material in a 72-hour blast out in the desert. We left with about 15 demos we made using the same drum machine and four track Max used working on Chaos A.D.” Puciato also describes the album as as “a bit of Sabbath-y doom, a bit of thrash, a bit of hardcore and punk.”
Max Cavalera has revealed that each member will be performing vocals on the record, explaining, “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. I love the idea of Greg, Troy and I singing together, with David Elitch’s amazing drumming. Being a part of this is something quite different for me.”
