℗ 2020 Nuclear Blast
Reluctant Hero Tracklist:
Let’s forget the part about these guys being a “Supergroup.” Killer Be Killed is flat out of the best bands, supergroup or not, that you’ll hear in heavy music. Their debut was great, but Reluctant Hero is miles beyond it. From start to finish, this is one of the best records, not only from 2020, but possibly ever. Greg Puciato belongs in heavy music. His voice sounds better than ever. Troy and Max are stellar as always. Each singer adds their own flair and it works insanely well. If you like heavy music at all and you don’t at least listen to this record, idk what to tell you. This might be THE heavy record of the year so get on it!
Just like their first album this one is true to form. The combination of speed, heaviness and melody is unmatched . Killer be killed is better than the guys other bands. I hope they keep making music!
Blown away! Heard the weekend special on Liquid Metal and really enjoyed hearing the back story on the production of this masterpiece. I had planned to buy the album, but when I heard the track Reluctant Hero-it floored me. It is that rare masterpiece of a song that has you reaching for your guitar to instantly start learning the song. Caps off a box of dynamite album with a haunting ballad-sure to be a classic!
I absolutely loved the first record and was disappointed it didn't get more attention. These first two new songs are excellent, combinning heaviness with melody; singing with screaming. If the rest of the album is as good as the first two, this could end up being my favorite album of the year. These guys just blend their styles so effortlessly and the results are fantastic. I hope the word gets out because this has something for virtually all metal fans!
