THE KILLERHERTZ - A KILLER ANTHEM

MIGHTY MUSIC

MAY 26 2014

 

 

Danish Rock has seen a rise in awareness outside of the country in recent years and The KillerHertz take their cues from Danish Metal and Hard Rock bands of the eighties and nineties and with legendary producer Flemming Rasmussen on board they have produced a debt that deserves to be heard.

 

If you love your Metal to be of a more traditional kind then The KillerHertz take a classic Metal sound and add a little of the bluster of bands like say ‘Black Tide’ but at its core the essence is a modern take on the Hard Rock/Metal genre with more emphasis on melody than histrionics, shredding or over the top drum fills.

 

‘Rebelheart’ that opens the album is refreshing modern Hard Roc/Metal amalgam and a fiery anthem to get the ball rolling. In the eleven songs here there’s a surprising amount of variety and tracks like the lighter more Hard Rocking ‘Let the Game Begin’ sounds distinctly European riding the line between Hard Rock and Power Metal.

 

If you like those openers then the good news is the best is still ahead of you. ‘The Fall’ is a laid back, but naggingly catchy mid-tempo rocker and sits nicely with some of the standouts like ‘Feeding The Damned’, ‘Shattered’ and ‘Youth Inc.’ all of which combine catchy Metal infused with Hard Rock sensibilities. A very solid album, well worth a listen even if it lacks that one killer song to pull in the masses.

 

A great debut full of fire.
