Killer Be Killed talk about debut album

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.”

Well, it has been announced that the “new project” is called Killer Be Killed and they just recently inked a deal with Nuclear Blast for the release of their debut album, which is tentatively due in mid-2014. The album is being recorded at Fortress Studio in Los Angeles, California with producer Josh Wilbur.

Max Cavalera and friends in the studio

Yes, I know we don’t cover Sepultura or Soufly, but their singer/guitarist Max Cavalera just entered Fortress Studio in L.A. with producer Josh Wilbur, where he is recording an as-yet-untitled project with Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders, The Dillinger Escape Plan singer Greg Puciato and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch. He writes:

“It’s going to be cool, we just don’t have a name yet, the name is a pain in the ass to find a name but the music is great. We have been working on this for two years!

Greg approached me kinda like how Alex [Newport] approached me to do Nailbomb in that he was really, really trying to get me to do this project. I told him already I was pretty busy doing Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy [and] I was not really looking for an extra thing, but he was pretty insistent and then I just gave up and was like ‘let’s fucking do this!’

It started with just me and Greg and then we got Dave Elitch – he’s an amazing drummer – and then Greg knew Troy and we asked him to be the bassist so it kind of became a supergroup all of a sudden. We jammed a couple of times and the last jam we did it sounded killer; the songs are really powerful real heavy. It’s hard to describe but I think the coolest thing about this project is that all three of us are going to sing on every song.”

The Dillinger Escape Plan cancels European tour

The Dillinger Escape Plan have unfortunately cancelled their European Tour due to the fact that guitarist Ben Weinman has injured his hand and wrist. The band has announced the following statement:

“I’m heartbroken that we will miss these shows because we were all looking forward to them a great deal,” Weinman said. “Obviously nobody likes being injured. I’m looking forward to performing on Summer Slaughter at full capacity and we will be back in Europe this fall on our headlining tour.”

 “Leaving for tour knowing that we would be performing without all members on stage isn’t something any of us are comfortable with,” added frontman Greg Puciato. “Ben is going to take the next month to heal and we’ll be ready to demolish Summer Slaughter and return to Europe in the fall with all systems loaded and ready to go.

Album Review: The Dillinger Escape Plan – “One Of Us Is The Killer”

Holy shit! I’ve just pressed play for the first time after anticipating the new Dillinger Escape Plan release for months and months now. I’ve been a big fan of these guys, who I believe to be the most extreme band to have ever existed, since their early days and have always had a strong opinion when it comes to debating this with others, justifying why nobody can fucking touch this band. Not now. Not ever. But I’m almost entirely lost for words. How the fuck am I supposed to review a Dillinger album and write anything that means a single thing to anybody that is a fan or simply knows about them and what they do already? How the fuck do I analyse these eleven tracks and outline this record and band for people that know nothing about them? I feel like I am completely unqualified to be in a position where somebody might read this review, take into account my opinion, and make a decision as to whether they want to check “One Of Us Is The Killer” out or not. One thing is for sure, “One Of Us Is The Killer” is as good a record as any other if you’re looking for an introduction to the New Jersey party smashers because they never hold back. Not now. Not ever.

Before this record was available to myself and my fellow Britons, I read a few of the early reviews it had received in the States. I did this with the hope of quenching my thirst for this new material by trying to imagine what it was that others were describing. For the most part, this was successful. However, I noticed what seemed to be a rather large amount of people writing essentially the same thing. A lot of reviewers seemed to be mentioning the fact that “One Of Us Is The Killer” is their most accessible album. Now, this is The Dillinger Escape Plan we are talking about, I wouldn’t really describe any of their material as “accessible”, unless you’re already big on extreme metal genres. I can’t imagine many non-Dillinger fans saying “I really couldn’t understand ‘Miss Machine’, but this is a lot easier to get into” or “’Option Paralysis’ was a but too heavy for my liking, so I’m glad they’ve put a few more calmed down bits on this record”. As far as I see it, you’re either a Dillinger fan or you’re not. Simple as that. They aren’t going to be picking up any more fans with this release, save for people that had never heard them before and are only just realising they exist and are incredible (my message for those people is you’re in for a real fucking treat once you’ve explored their entire discography).

Another common theme was “’X’ song would fit really neatly on ‘X’ album” and “’X’ reminds me a lot of ‘X’ from ‘X’”. No way! You’re telling me that one of their songs sounds a bit like a song they might have put on another record? Maybe it’s because they were written by the same band. Maybe it’s because that band aren’t the type to jump on any bandwagon and adapt their style according to the requests and needs of others. Maybe it’s because The Dillinger Escape Plan, despite plenty of lineup changes, stick to making an experimental sound that emulates nobody and has literally no competition. That’s why some of these tracks sound interchangeable with ones from previous releases!

Then we have the early-Dillinger purists, the social network army of ‘mathcore’ snobs that constantly refer to “Calculating Infinity” and how they haven’t liked anything the band did since then. Congratulations guys, you’ve left a YouTube comment to show everybody that you used to listen to them before there was any singing in their music, and now you don’t like them because it isn’t what it used to be. Let me just clear something up for you – that album came out in 1999 and about ten different people have played in this band since then. Their main annoyance seems to be with Greg Puciato (vocalist since 2001) and his use of sung, rather than shouted, vocals. Personally, I believe that this has done nothing but improve their music. The contrast between the two vocal styles Greg exhibits is what makes The Dillinger Escape Plan’s music so much more chaotic. It’s never long before the storm arrives and it gives these parts a much stronger impact than “Calculating Infinity”‘s constant madness. This contrast is very prominent on the new album. Tracks like “Nothing’s Funny”, “One Of Us Is The Killer” and “Magic That I Held You Prisoner” are all testament to the fact that Greg has an amazing singing voice and he’s obviously happy to demonstrate it, regardless of what the YouTube critics have to say.

This album is another masterpiece in terms of structure, it flows perfectly from start to finish and every song is a fantastic amalgamation of crazy time signatures, some of the best drumming you can expect to ever hear, jazz tendencies and brute force. Of course, “One Of Us Is The Killer” is packed with Ben Weinman’s famous biddly-biddly-biddly guitar work and broken riffs that put most metal acts to shame, proving that the only original member of this group is still completely capable of writing insane experimental music without it becoming stale and unoriginal.

My personal favourites are “When I Lost My Bet” for the amount of times it switches up and how crazy powerful each transformation is, and “Crossburner” for it’s stoner bassline and downright heaviness.
This release shows that The Dillinger Escape Plan are still at the top of their game, and that nobody is even getting close to matching them at what they do. Not now. Not ever.
