Killing Culture - _Killing Culture_
(Edel America, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
Few new bands possess the traits of a great band that may possibly lead them to success. May I introduce to you Killing Culture. The Los Angeles-based quartet deliver fast and furious riffs of intensity and might, wrapped within a darkened shell of hatred and anger. I really like this record. Why, you ask? The production is killer (let's thank Anthrax' Scott Ian for that), the music flows vigorously, and the band's music has a cool Slayer-like sound (_Reign in Blood_/_South of Heaven_ era) to it. So will this band be successful? Why not? They have worked hard to get their music so well-executed and I feel that the speed/thrash feel to the record radiates a very positive 90s feel to it. It also allows the band to bring more modern elements to a sound that never really died but was just left by the roadside and never given the opportunity to make a leap into a more modern era of metal. Loud, brash, and extremely tight, Killing Culture lash out at us with its jagged claws in hopes to strike us down. Could happen as this record plays hardball from the start. Check this band out.
