Killitorous: “The Afterparty” Album Review

Hey, all you cool cats and kittens! (Sorry, I’d be remiss if I didn’t make at least one bad Tiger King reference eventually.) I’m guessing at this point that most of you are about to snap off and start taking family members hostage in the basement if you can’t get outside and interact with people you’re not connected to through DNA shared by incestuous drunken trailer park hook-ups. God knows when live shows will happen again. I can’t see there being socially distanced mosh pits, so what’s an upstanding morally bankrupt metalhead to do these days? I say throw on the new Killitorous record, The Afterparty, grab a sledgehammer, and start swinging it at anything you can to get out your pent up emotions.

The Afterparty is the follow up to 2014’s Party, Grind, which was also co-produced, mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, Despised Icon, The Agonist, Shadow of Intent) at The Grid in Montreal, Quebec. The line-up consists of vocalist Mathieu Dhani (Epiphany From The Abyss); guitarists Aaron Homma( Annihilator/ex-Vital Remains), Nick Miller (First Fragment) and Marc Roy (ex-Divine Realm); drummer Eric Morotti (Suffocation/ex-Blind Witness); and bassist Xavier Sperdouklis. So, Killitorous is basically just a “supergroup” of underground badassness.

A few of my fave tracks are “Eat Your God Alive,” “Rodney Dangerfield of Dreams”(Rest in peace, RD!), and “Married with Children,” which has a fantastic video to go along with it.

The Afterparty is out now on Tentacles Industries. Buy it here!
