|What more can be said about Killwhitneydead (further denoted as KWD) that hasn't been said before?! At times utterly sick and disgusting but often lighthearted and even funny, one thing remains constant: KWD is the most fun and over the top band the scene has to offer. On its second full-length, Never Good Enough For You, KWD once again succeeds in visually, lyrically, and musically offending the listener. The new album completely reinvents these dudes from small-time offenders into a major wrecking crew that delivers seventeen deadly blows of pure lust and hatred against members of the weak sex. |
The cover features Katie from Suicide Girls (www.suicidegirls.com), naked and covered in blood, with her heart torn out as she hold it in her right hand. Hot! Just like the album's artwork, the dudes in KWD don't fuck around with their music as they deliver an onslaught of grinding metalcore with punishing breakdowns and an abundance clever movie samples - an amalgam which makes KWD a true original.
Unlike other bands that use movie samples in their music, KWD fuses the two to perfection. At times funny and completely over the top like the sample from Harry Potter on the opening track, Where There's Smoke, but often disturbing and even scary like the sample from an HBO original movie Flypaper on I Already Have Enough Friends (Take Two), the samples play the role of a narrator in KWD's music and add color, usually blood red, to the lyrics.
On Never Good Enough For You, KWD takes a pretty blunt approach to its music. There are no unnecessary parts, just heavy fucking metal with heavy-ass breakdowns and movie samples. The band makes its point heard and does not hesitate to pull the plug; all which makes me want more, especially during Bitterness is a Beautiful Thing where I wish for the solo at the end to go on forever.
KWD offers plenty for metalheads and hardcore kids to enjoy. There is everything to fit an eclectic musical palate: speed, intricacy, breakdowns, amazing movie samples and plenty of shock value. You can't go wrong with Never Good Enough For You.
The album cover with a picture of a sadistic-looking naked woman drenched in blood and holding out a freshly plucked organ in one hand, makes it a certainty that the music on the disc is what one might hear on a romantic comedy movie soundtrack…NOT! And that’s just the front cover! On Never Good Enough for You, Arizona’s Killwhitneydead specialize in sample-ridden, molten blasts of white hot metal that will dye your carpet red from all the blood pouring out of the speakers. I can’t recall a straight up metal album that utilized so many movie samples on every single song to such fantastic effect. This isn’t just intro and outro material or even the occasional mid-song break; the samples are woven into the
metallic fabric, shooting through the mix of chainsaw riffs, double-bass blasts, and bone-chilling quasi-black metal style vocal shrieks. No masturbatory musicianship goes on with any of these 17 tooth-chipping tracks; it’s blast, burn, pop in with a sample, shriek your guts out, change pace quickly, throw in a couple more samples, and burn the fuckin’ house down with the family still inside. It’s not all repetitive riff chug either; a tune may move from death metal bash to metalcore groove all in the matter of seconds. Then on songs like “The Fine & Subtle Art Of Deception” and “Like You Didn’t Hear Me The First Time,” guitar solos rip and tear like a drunken maniac with a razor blade. By the same token, we’re not talking incredibly deep arrangements or expert song craft either. It doesn’t matter though because I still felt like bashing someone’s head in or driving my car off a cliff when I played the CD. It’s all about the carnage. What more can you ask for? As I mentioned above, what makes this one special is the manner in which the band so effectively uses the samples as part of the arrangements; not just the standard horror movie stuff either. Hell, I heard twisted material from comedies like Old School and Saving Silverman and they were far from out-of-place. The boys even list on the insert every single movie from which a sample was taken and got permission to boot – I counted close to 40! And how about some of these other song titles: “Love Is Like A Mouth Full Of Broken Glass,” You Will Get Exactly What You Deserve (And Not One Bullet Less),” and “Who Said Alcohol & Handguns Didn’t Go Great Together.” This is some serious face breaking metal covered in a thick syrup made of bone dust and entrails. It’s just goddamn fun!
