The Kill - Hate Sessions 2000-2002
This is kind of a discography of the Australian Grindcore band The Kill. It’s all the recordings they did, in their first 2 years of existence (2000-2002).They broke up a couple of times in the years after that. In the middle of 2006 they re-grouped again with a new singer and did some shows again.
Basically this release contains their The Soundtrack To Your Violence MCD, split 7” w/ Birdflesh, demo tape, split 7” w/ Retaliation and their 4-way split 7”. It's 25 songs of pure blistering, fast, extreme sonic grind terror! Those 25 songs are passing you by like a Boeing plane flying straight over your head in just over 22 minutes. Musically, this band plays hyperfast, mind-blowing technical grind/powerviolence, comparable to bands as Discordance Axis, Assuck, Narcosis and an insane over the top Brutal Truth. This band exists out of a drummer, guitar-player and a vocalist, so no bass here.
The first 14 songs are from The Soundtrack To Your Violence. These songs are over before you even know it, but these songs are the best songs on the disc. These recordings have a very good, acceptable sound. Normally that’s the biggest problem of underground grind bands, having a decent sound. It’s too difficult to write stuff about separated songs, because they are over before I even hit the keyboard. Most of the lyrics by this band are in the category of hate humanity and fuck off! lyrics. Occasionally they sing about some political topics. After a couple of times listening to this record, I got to like their sound more and more. As always with grindcore bands doing a shitload of songs in just a short time, it’s the boredom that hits you after a dozen of songs. It’s the same with The Kill.
After hearing them play the puss out of my ears for 15 songs, I kinda heard it all. The 16th song sounds exactly as the first one. What doesn’t help either is that the recordings of the Retaliation split 7” and the rest, don't sound as good as the first 14 songs. Some songs are a pure blur of drums and guitars with a vomiting angry singer. With a proper recording this disc may keep your interest until the end, but now I kinda lost interest halfway through. It’s a pity though, because the first 14 songs made me hungry for more.
If you want your grindcore fast, technical and just insanely over the top and you are into stuff like Discordance Axis, than this is the band for you! Oh, currently The Kill is writing and recording for a new full length album. Hopefully they are recording their stuff at a proper studio.
