killing boy – Self-titled Review

As bands rise and fall, members of groups come together to form new bands and create new sounds. killing boy is one of those bands, featuring members of Art-School, Straightener, Hinto, and Nothing’s Carved in Stone.

Their self-titled album featuring nine tracks is very reminiscent of Art-School and that genre of rock, partially because it features the vocalist from that band. The bass style is a non-stop accompaniment of the beat. With a groove strong style, killing boy sounds like a combination of the styles of each individual member meshing together.

I’ll admit, it’s not a huge step away from a recognizable Japanese rock style, but it does show that the band is able to work through different styles with little problem.

Hopefully the next release will have a bit more strength.
