Driller Killer - _And the Winner Is..._
(Osmose, 2000)
by: Kirsty Buchanan (7 out of 10)
This album can be summed up in one word: "RAW". After one listen I didn't ever want to punish my aural nerves in that way again. But a faulty stereo which will only read certain CDs forced me late one night to enter into the world of Driller Killer once more. And I'm very glad it did. "Fire in the Hole" is a truly fast, frantic track which grew on me the more I heard it, as did the rest of the album. Humour is one thing I'm always hunting and when the sample before "B.O.F.G." made me laugh till I cried for no real reason, I was very impressed. The samples and subtitles to the songs are a work of comedic genius and original creative skill. "Legalize Murder Now": "Save tax money, have a get together, burn childmolesters at your local store". This, although possibly intentionally inflammatory, seemed to me to embody the open sense of humour Driller Killer display. The percussion, after a number of times through, ceases to be as raw and jarring to the senses, and I could recognise the inherent skill of it. No compromise indeed!!!
