DRILLER KILLER
DRILLER KILLER
Cold, Cheap & Disconnected
(Osmose Productions)
41:24min

Hmm, it seems that none of our contributors is really into DRILLER KILLER's stuff as the possibility of reviewing the band's sixth full length wasn't necessarily crowned with enthusiastic responses... I am not a big fan of this Swedish bunch either, but at least do have a lot of respect for what they've been consequently doing for nine years now. DRILLER KILLER have created a quite unique sound on their own, by mixing elements of old Hardcore Punk (in the early G.B.H., DISCHARGE, EXPLOITED vein), with the raw Rock'n'Roll attitude of MOTÖRHEAD and a few modern, Scandinavian Death Metal overtones. The result is highly energetic, totally aggressive, kick ass music that will most certainly be even more enjoyable in a small, sweaty club, with a couple of beers consumed. Still not something that I would freak out on constantly, but at least it's not as annoying as I expected it to be. And hey - somebody should somehow make sure to play the band's cover of 'I Love Playing With Fire' to JOAN JETT, who originally released that song on her 1983 release "Album"... I bet she's gonna love it, hahaha.
