#131: THE KILLERS - “voice of reason”
i guess there have been various bands called THE KILLERS long before NEW ORDER used the fictitious name in the video to the song “crystal” and THE KILLERS (pop-rock-band) from las vegas went big. this 7” is by a powerviolence-/fastcore-band from the late 90ies.
i remember lots of people talking about this record or band, because some ex-members (or at least one) of CHARLES BRONSON were in it. and CHARLES BRONSON was, together with REVERSAL OF MAN, one of the most popular powerviolence bands (at least here in vienna) of that time.
the record was released on a german label called chappi records in 1999. the 11 songs are really straightforward fastcore/powerviolence with some nice moshparts. lyricwise you get lots of political topics (e.g. a hate-song against nike), which is quite typical for that era.
by the way: that’s for sure the heaviest vinyl-7” in my collection. i just put it on a scale: it weighs 70 grams!
