Killing The Dream - "Self Titled" (RVL004)
Killing The Dream's debut effort features 5 brand new songs on vinyl (vinyl is currently out of stock), and a 10 song CD featuring all 5 new songs, plus the 5 songs from the 2003 demo. Killing The Dream plays a style of hardcore similar to that of modern hardcore bands like Comeback Kid, successfully mixing traditional fast hardcore with some heavier material. Expect layered guitar harmonics and melodies, reminiscent of Count Me Out and Kid Dynamite, mixed with the vocal intensity of the early American Nightmare recordings. This new record takes an already solid foundation and builds upon that, hinting at a band really beginning to come into their own, creating their own unique approach to anger and desperation.
"...you can expect an all-out assault from all angles fusing melody, quality musicianship, and a dose of fun."
"Every once in a while a band totally knocks me off my feet and whenever this happens I feel the urgency to tell the world about it"
"Solid guitar work, solid vocals, solid rhythm section, just one fucking solid release."
"Imagine the intensity of Terror mixed with the melody of Stay Gold and this is exactly what you'd get."
"There is a definite feel of hardcore with tons of energy and passion blaring from the speakers, fast drum beats and grooves thatíll have you two stepping/skanking in no time."
