Killaman - _Killaman_
(Displeased Records, 2004)
by: Xander Hoose (9 out of 10)
Those who mourned over the disbanding of Murder Corporation can finally put their grief behind them. Under the name Killaman comes their new incarnation, consisting of Rune (vocals), Johan (guitar/bass) and Rikard (drums). Those of you familiar with the Deranged line-up might recognize a name or two as well. _Killaman_ is not as much the continuation of the Murder Corporation sound as it is the taking of a new course, mixing death with thrash and a sniff of grindcore. On the eleven songs on this album, Killaman doesn't let their guard down for a second: from the first notes to the last, your senses are bombarded with non-stop violent riffing, aggressive drumming and clear, deep growls. Think of a death metal version of The Haunted's debut album and you might get the idea. Having a fast-paced album without any slower pieces means something has to be done to hold the attention: the tiny insane guitar parts that can be found throughout the songs do the trick perfectly. Clocking in at a decent 32 minutes, _Killaman_ is a worthy debut album that leaves a desire for more. It's good to hear that in the meantime, a second guitarist and permanent bass player have been found. If these guys are playing at a club near you, go check them out!
