Killcode Krew, "Still Here" Video Review
Facebook is a funny site. Why do you want to be my friend and why am I yours and if I needed $5 til payday would all of my friends choke it up. Hell no.
Facebook also offers a nifty ‘inbox’ function. As you can see right here on the morning of the fourth of July I got a msg from a band I apparently am friends with. This is how it begins and this is how we get to this review. Auto response or a really bored band member I will never know who I was corresponding with but the fact of the matter is- they get a bit of space right here on rocknyc.
Let’s get the negative out of the way. There are two minor things I am not found of. I dont like the “K” in Krew. It’s silly and 80’s ands so is lead singer ‘Tom’s’ moustache. Thats it. Thats all I have on the negative.
This slickly produced video throws Kid Rock and Stone Sour into a Vita Mix and makes a bloody mess. Its a great song for those who enjoy their metal with a dash of down home cookin’, meaning these New York City boys have a Southern twang- where the hell did that come from?
There is nothing unique about the tune but its anthemic qualities will certainly make the devil horns rise and there is a strong hungry young market just dying for this genre. Its a cool niche, this Southern inspired hard rock. But alas, Im a punk rock girl so its not my scene.
I absolutely respect bands that reach out and will always do my best to at least give them a shout out-Killcode Krew could potentially be your new favorite band. So give them a try on your way to grab some Skoal.
Hey Killcode Krew- well done
