KILLSET RETURN WITH KILLER SET, ‘S.T.F.U.’
KILLSET RETURN WITH KILLER SET, ‘S.T.F.U.’
is the combination of a professional, well-oiled, finely tuned metal
machine and an explosive, super charged charismatic front man - as
evidenced by their upcoming album, ‘S.T.F.U.’ (release date: June 23rd).
Having been produced by Eddie Wohl (Fuel, Smile Empty Soul, ill Niño,
36 Crazyfists) and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, ill
Niño, Sepultura), this sophomore effort is polished and ready to take
over the world. The leadoff single/video, “Killers in the Pit,” serves
as the perfect introduction to the unique flavor of the band with
crushing riffs, shouted vocals, and heavy rhythms.
in the Pit,’ is simply a song for our fans, the Killers!,” explains the
band. “It’s for everyone that supports our music. It’s for everyone
that takes the time out of their lives to come down to our shows and
tear up the place with us! It's about finding a positive and fun way to
get rid of that extra energy and stress that so many people feel in
their lives. We decided to drop this single first because music needs
some flavor right now and we're bringing that not only with this track,
but the whole ‘S.T.F.U.’ album! As it says in the song...let's show the
Other standout tracks include "Tomorrow" and a cover of Kris Kross’ ‘90s hit, “Jump,” which are among the favorites of the band and singer Luca.
is very personal for me because it takes me back to my hometown and
what was going through my head before I moved out to L.A. On a broader
scale, it is a song for all those who lay their head down at night and
think of what could be. It's about taking a chance in this life and
following your dreams no matter how crazy they may seem to others. It's
for all those who so desperately want to live their passion, but are
afraid to fail. As it says in the song, "There is no tomorrow, I gotta break out now!"
"When I suggested “Jump” as a cover, I was really surprised the guys
were down. We started jamming and messing around with it, and it became
obvious that this was the cover we needed to do and that we also needed
to go all out and shoot a parody music video! So I wrote the script and
then we went to thrift stores and bought the biggest jeans they had,
timberland boots, leather woven belts, boomboxes, jerseys, cross colours
clothes and I had my mom send out my old pager and the rest is
history...haha. The song came out sick and I think it was by far the
most fun any of us have ever had shooting a music video!"
was created when former ARCM members, James "Jas" Dillon (Drums), Mark
Baker (Bass), and Dave Comer (Guitars), combined forces with new singer
Luca (Choleric). Instantly, there was an addictive atmosphere in the
writing process that could not be denied. The contributions and writing
styles of each member perfectly complemented one another's individual
uniqueness, to create a sound that beautifully kills.
then joined forces with renowned producer, Eddie Wohl (Fuel, Smile
Empty Soul, ill Nino, 36 Crazyfists) and completed their debut
full-length album ‘Know Your Killer,’ demonstrating their signature
sound of pure ferocity and simple beauty. The overwhelming support of
the freshman album allowed KillSET the opportunities to share the
stage with Fear Factory, Otep, Red, Adrenaline Mob, Flaw, Nothing More,
and Saliva. The band then chose to embark on another musical
journey, again collaborating with producer Eddie Wohl, which has
culminated in a sophomore effort that will undoubtedly impact anyone who
dares to listen. Transcending the current generic norm, the new album,
‘S.T.F.U.’ has a style and flavor that is simply undeniable - which fans
will soon hear for themselves.

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT
QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

Sabaton was formed back in 1999 in Falun, Sweden when the members of a band called "Aeon" reformed and rearmed for the upcoming first recording in Moon Music Studio. The founding members of Aeon: Rikard, Pär and Daniel Mullback had joined forces with Oskar and Joakim earlier during the year which had seen a few line-up changes and the guys decided on a fresh start and changed the name of the band to Sabaton. These are the same guys you see on stage today.
As a young proto-metalhead living in the hard streets of Riverside, Rhode Island we would all gather at whoever had the latest vinyl release and rock out for hours. Discussing techniques, listening to lyrics, guitar solos. The best albums offered up energy at its purest form. It transmitted from the vinyl grooves right into our little teenage brains. You could literally feel what the band or artist was trying to convey.
Metallica's latest release, Hardwired to self destruct offers up a modern day version of that same energy and spirit from days gone by. It is a powerful statement from a band that many had written off. One song...Now were all dead...that is the only song you need to listen to. But there are many, many more. This is grade a material from a group of artists who managed to capture their energy and channel it through this disc. This is real, this is power, this is the definition of a classic metal album.
Another great sign of a good, solid album is that you can list…
