On McKinney Music, “the best independent music magazine in the UK“, rock music is more than just a pastime for KILLCODE; it’s a way of life. There new single, KILLCODE Premiered Lets Get Back to Rock N’ Roll, has had a raucous response.
Select a rock music style and you can be sure that someone in New York City is making it, despite how obscure it may appear. The rock fire will never die out in the Five Boroughs or beyond. Even if fashions shift and mainstream attention shifts, there are still too many fervent believers in the city to stop the rock from continuing to roll.
Rock music is more than just a hobby or art form to the five KILLCODE members; it’s a way of life. They represent tens of thousands of other individuals who regard rock as fundamental to who they are, what they do, and how they do it. Therefore, raucous applause is certain to follow when Killcode sing Let’s Get Back To Rock N’ Roll.
These musicians are already regarded as unwavering advocates of rock at its most basic and potent in the underground scene in New York. Killcode have performed alongside Rammstein, KISS, Aerosmith, Five Finger Death Punch, Twisted Sister, Queensryche, Alter Bridge, and Airbourne all over the world. They have also headlined sold-out shows at prestigious venues in New York City like the Gramercy Theater and the Bowery Ballroom.
To regional acclaim, they have also released two albums and a string of ferocious EPs. They have performed at the Bang Your Head Festival in Germany, Rockfest Barcelona in Spain, Hell and Heaven Fest in Mexico, Riverside Aarburg in Switzerland, and other gatherings of faithful worldwide with their distinctive blend of Southern rock, metal, roughneck barroom blues, and pure Downtown grit. They have left a trail of pure hysteria wherever they have gone, making their total commitment to rock manifest for audiences.
Let’s Get Back To Rock N’ Roll
“Let’s Get Back to Rock N’ Roll” is a traditionalists’ unapologetic anthem, but it’s actually more complicated than it seems. Chas and DC Gonzalez’s guitar playing is subtle and intricate, and even as they emphasize attitude and power, they never stop thinking about how to hypnotize the listener. Rob Noxious, a drummer, and Bobby Flores, a bass player, never break out of the groove. Instead, they strategically change the intensity of their approach while always remembering to let the song breathe.
In addition, Tom Morrissey, the singer, shines in a break in the middle of the song that also serves as an opportunity to get the crowd behind his noble cause: rock music performed without any compromises and with the utmost fervor and conviction.
Additionally, David Swajeski’s raucous music video for “Let’s Get Back To Rock N’ Roll” places Killcode right in the middle of the city, just in case it wasn’t clear where the band was coming from. He provides us with excellent footage from the air of the city at its most dramatic. However, the clip really comes to life when he enters bars and clubs to catch Killcode performing, causing crowds of leather-clad rockers to go into complete delirium. They act in that manner. That will always be the case as long as they have musical instruments and voices with which to shout.
