Album Review By Anthony Nicastro

Boston Rock Radio


Hailing from San Diego, Killing Tyranny is a very formidable heavy metal band, that is not afraid to tell anyone that metal is far from dead in the USA. Singer, George Gregory's vocal style blends between bands such as Rob Zombie and Pantera. This album drips and oozes with frenzied guitar solos from Scott Muller, chugging guitar rhythms from Jason Bonsangue, pulsating bass lines from Erik Owens, and driven double bass from Bill Giannattasio that will be more than enough to keep the listener’s attention. 

Opening with a steady bass line, ‘Can You Feel The Power’ displays the Rob Zombie influencesPinch harmonics add a nice touch of accent to go along with a guitar solo that feels very Judas Priest influenced, which is certainly commendable. The drums go into overdrive and to another level during the last chorus of the song.   

Literally right from the starting line ‘Douche’ is pummeling with complex drums and a guitar solo that would make any 80’s virtuoso proud. The ending of the track stands out quite well with the line, “You see them coming, you better start running, nice.”

Easily the heaviest track on the album, ‘Nothing To Lose’ comes right in with heavy drums complementing heart palpitating snare and accompanying double bass.  This vocal style sounds is much more abrasive, as if Mr George Gregry is channeling his inner Phil Anselmo. 

The track, ‘Sleeper Awake’ has a great 80’s throwback feel with straightforward guitars and memorable lyrics, particularly the chorus line of “I see the rivers rise and the mountains fall”.  It’s what I consider a bookend song, where both the intro and outro are of similar nature and indeed they are both melodic in nature, which is right up my alley.   

The Lie” starts out with a single bass line backed by dive bomb pinch harmonics before the main section of the track sets in. This track features, if ever briefly, a polyphonic vocal line where the main words “Lies, deceit / doesn’t matter what happened” is accompanied by a soothing clean underlying vocal melody line. It brings a nice element and could very well serve as a springboard for future material.

In conclusion, this 14 song album was very enjoyable, full of aggressive energy, and one that I would recommend to anyone to give it a listen.  I do hope to catch them on tour at some point and witness their raw power in real time.
