Killwhitneydead Nothing Less Nothing More / Hell To Pay

Killwhitneydead Nothing Less Nothing More / Hell To Pay
Obviously mistaking themselves for Guns n’ Roses at the height of their popularity in 1991 (before Nirvana ruined everything for Axl and crew), Killwhitneydead have done away with their illusions (long since revealing their true identities and home base in the face of their ever increasing popularity) to deliver an impressive 24 new tracks in the two-year span since So Pretty So Plastic. Nothing Less Nothing More is the "official” release, with Hell To Pay only currently available on-line and at KWD shows, but both were recorded at the same sessions and feature no marked difference in quality, misanthropy, musical hostility or the overwhelming number of film and TV samples (everything from Deadwood, Family Guy, The Devil’s Rejects, Batman Begins, Sin City, Kill Bill, Closer, Firefly/Serenity to Anchorman and about a billion more) that have become KWD’s murder weapons of choice. True, KWD haven’t changed or altered their modus operandi since perfecting that volatile mix on Never Good Enough for You, refining their destructive Molotov cocktail of thrash and death metal, Southern metallic grove and occasional grind parts with a slightly hardcore sheen ever since. However, they’ve got it down to a science and the relentless musical assault and lyrical tales of revenge are offset by the band’s sly humour and sample-mania. After all, it’s not any band that could cover Soft Cell’s "Tainted Love” and get away with it. (Tribunal) (Tribunal)
