Killer Be Killed Supergroup Debuts First New Song in Six Years, Announces ‘Reluctant Hero’ Album
Killer Be Killed, the supergroup featuring members of Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Soulfly and Converge, have just released "Deconstructing Self-Destruction," their first new song in six years. The track comes off their newly announced sophomore record, Reluctant Hero, which will be out Nov. 20.
What's especially appealing about this particular group of metal luminaries is that three of the members — Troy Sanders (Mastodon, Gone Is Gone), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Queen) and Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy, ex-Sepultura) — all sing. Sometimes, the three combine their voices in sublime harmony while, at other times, take turns, texturing the riff-intensive metallic foundation of the über catchy "Deconstructing Self-Destruction."

Last summer, guitarist/vocalist Max Cavalera forecasted that Killer Be Killed would be back with a new record in 2020, and, despite all the unexpected circumstances this year has brought (namely, a global pandemic), it turns out he was accurate. "I think the first record was really good … but I think not a lot of people knew about it," said Cavalera in 2019, "So hopefully this time, with this new one, we get to show it to more people. Because it's a special project. The combination of me, Greg, Troy and Ben [Koller, Converge] is very unique."
