Boomkat Product Review:
Having spiked interest on their 'When The Blood Turns Black' EP, this purposefully faceless Chicago duo have at last delivered their debut LP for the consistently amblicated Ghostly International. Taking elements from 80's electropop, Detroit house, Trent Reznor and Warp's Artificial Intelligence movement, Kill Memory Crash then set about refitting these disparate (although not entirely distinct) influences into a high-octane rock based fusion. Although you might be getting dizzy through visions of The Prodigy by this point, Kill Memory Crash thankfully only take their ROCK as a starting point on a journey that leads to a similar (albeit more industrial) territory to The Midwest Project. So whilst 'Riyout' is like a more coherent and toned down Alec Empire and 'Never Forget' goes for the industrial chalice, it's 'Crash V8's' epic build and Rudolf Christoph Eucken sentiment that best represents their sound.
