KILLING CALIFORNIA: No Pentagrams No Crosses: CD

Wow! This is some great punk that’s mixed with hardcore and the whiskey-soaked rock of bands like Nashville Pussy. Vocalist Danny Craig’s gritty singing sounds like he’s shredding his vocal chords. The rest of the band is fantastic, with their crazed playing that wants to go over to the deep end, but stays together. These guys have some really good lyrics too, not just the drink and party crap that gets so overdone. Killing California is a band that would blow away a lot of other bands offstage if they went on first. They should be headliners and deserve success. –Rick E
