Metal Blade Signs Culture Killer
Culture Killer will be tracking throughout June with Kenny Gil (Dark Sermon) at Pig Pen Recordings. On signing with Metal Blade, vocalist Ian Campbell commented: "As a group of young musicians, it comes with great honor that Culture Killer is fortunate enough to be a part of the Metal Blade Family, alongside some of the most legendary and influential bands to date. We love working with everyone on the Metal Blade staff and can't wait to release our debut full-length through the label later this year!"
The ferocity of Culture Killer's music and lyrics make it apparent that this band has a goal and message, and that this isn't directionless rage. The cover art for the "Exterminate Filth" single should make this quite obvious. Drummer Dylan Blow elaborates on the topic Culture Killer tackled with "Justice Through Retaliation": "The song tells the story of a woman fighting a seemingly endless battle with spousal abuse. She reflects on the words and feelings that she once embraced; soon realizing that the man she loved was now her greatest fear. At the turning point of the song, she finds that her only chance of survival is to kill him.
"Domestic violence is an extremely disturbing and reoccurring reality. Sadly, many stories remain untold. Don't be afraid to speak up, don't be afraid to reach out for help, and most importantly, don't ever feel ashamed to tell your story."
More details about the upcoming album will be made available throughout the next few months. The album is expected to be released later this year.
