I get lots of emails from people every day, asking me to listen to this band or that band. Sometimes, I’m in a chipper mood and actually give something a chance, but at some point, I will get around to listening to all of the bands people have suggested to me.
Today, a representative for this New York metal band called IKILLYA contacted me again, just following up to see if I had a chance to listen to the guys.
I clicked the handy link (very helpful, for future submissions people) that the dude put in the email, and it brought me to the band’s Reverb Nation site. I listened to two tracks, and I was into it. For real. I liked it, but I didn’t fall in love right off the bat.
That’s a rare thing, which means I am going to have to check them out more. But, the dude wanted coverage so, here it is.
Go and check out IKILLYA, a decent-sounding band with an unfortunate name, and tell us what you think: Good, bad, really sad? Awesome, rad, made you wish you hated metal?
