South America is pretty cool but it's been utterly misrepresented on this blog, unless you take into account my review of Beatriz Carnicero last year. I bring that up because members of Timekiller are from Brazil (and Arizona!). They play raw-punk that features influences stretching from Scandinavian hardcore to Japanese hardcore to speed-metal, which sounds like an ace mix. Plus they come Maximum Rock n Roll approved, which is fine by me. Their EP Bleed Out was released in 2014 by Spanish label Noise Of Hell Records on 7", on tape by French label Crapoulet Records and digitally by the band themselves.
2. Kill The Judges
3. Bleed Out
4. Sinking In Shit
5. Half Empty
6. Sick Vision
7. Time Heals Nothing
This is thick, guitar-laden punk with plenty of reverb in the vocals and massive intensity. Opener Burden sounds like garage punk turned up to the max thanks to the vox. Timekiller throw screaming leads into the mix on Kill The Judges. which can just be heard amongst the crushing walls of distortion and drumming. The songs on Bleed Out are short blasts of pit-inducing proportions.
