Killwhitneydead – Trilogy Of Terror

Posted: February 24, 2011 in Music

By now it’s no secret that Greensboro, North Carolina’s KILLWHITNEYDEAD began their career in a shroud of mystery. It too is no secret that they didn’t expect to ever release any material beyond the first EP. But with the release of that first EP, the unexpected happened…KWD had actual fans besides their close friends and “people in the know.” Those amazing new fans demanded more music. So in the incredibly short process of about six months the band wrote and recorded nearly 30 more songs which would become the albums Never Good Enough For You and So Pretty So Plastic.

What is not widely known about these early years is what little finances the band had at their disposal to record these albums. With a few pennies and a helping hand from engineer/friend Jamie King, KWD were able to record those albums for basically nothing by today’s standards. Fast forward to 2008 and Jamie King (known the world over now as “the” metal engineer) asks KWD if they would like to remix the early albums because he can surely make them sound better with today’s technology. So they said, “HELL YES!” and with that comes the collection, Not Even God Can Save You Now: A Trilogy Of Terror.

With a powerful sound that borrows from many genres (mostly deathcore), and a myriad of movie and television quips mixed in for good measure. Killwhitneydead is worth a good listen, and this collection is a great little package of their work up until 2009.

Included are the re-recording of their first EP Inhaling The Breath Of A Bullet, the remixed and remastered versions of Never Good Enough For You & So Pretty So Plastic, and a fourth disk of some new tracks and new mixes.

The band will be releasing it’s newest studio album in 2011, titled Ever Thine. Ever Mine. Ever Ours.
