KILLER BE KILLED – the super-group, which is comprised of Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA), Troy Sanders (MASTODON) Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), and drummer Ben Koller (CONVERGE, ALL PIGS MUST DIE, MUTOID MAN) – has just release its sophomore album, “Reluctant Hero”, today November 20 via Nuclear Blast. The animated video for the fourth single from the LP, “From A Crowded Wound”, can be seen below.
Koller said of the song: “‘From A Crowded Wound’ is the creeping punisher on this record, a lumbering steamroller laying a trail of sleek acid slime from beginning to end.” Costin Chioreanu, who has previously worked on videos for GHOST, NAPALM DEATH and CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, created the visually stunning clip.
