The whirlwind of heavy, fast, melodic, thrashy, and often meditative bombast, with sparks of hardcore punk, summoned by Killer Be Killed is the formidable and inevitable result of the sum of its parts, whose combined discography warped and shaped the culture.

Three men possessed of some of the most recognizable voices in heavy music split frontman duty. Boundary pushers and innovators, born and bred in different cities and tempered by their respective projects, each one is an equal participant in the fresh ceremony of inspired ritual, together with one of the most beloved drummers in heavy music. Killer Be Killed's debut album was a force of nature that demolished preconceived notions of "supergroup" upon its arrival in 2014. Reluctant Hero, the band's surprise follow-up, conceived in secrecy some six years later, doubles down on that mission statement while splashing the sonic canvas with new colors and visions.

Things went quiet on the public front following the band's string of shows in Australia, but Killer Be Killed remained steadfast in their commitment to rise again. Rather than stir up the heavy music community with talk about what they may or may not do, Cavalera, Puciato, Sanders, and Koller resolved to write and record the second album in secrecy. A cohesive, collective vision, Reluctant Hero represents a renewed statement of purpose with even more depth and clarity. Killer Be Killed is the sound of the specific chemistry in the room when these four guys are together. Killer Be Killed is inevitable.
