Killsong – He Is Risen


Killsong – He Is Risen
Art As Catharsis – 2013
Rock, Punk, Funk, Freak, Art
Rated: **

'The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.' That’s one of the few really good sentences in an otherwise doable book. But if you want to hear something that resembles that sentence or perhaps something that is even weirder you might want to check out the Australian avant-garde funk freak out poetry five-piece that is Killsong. Ye gods man, and I thought I was demented? But on their five-track album He Is Risen they are putting all of us to shame! They definitely go for the gusto in translating their madness into something that can make teddy bears go berserk with bloodlust. This is not for the feeble or the wicked. For the first will start crying and the later will go on a killing spree. For everybody else out there; try this. If it doesn’t flip your head it might just be that last piece missing in your otherwise beautiful and colorful work of art…
