WATCH OUT CANADA! Rock band Kill Matilda are back with their new album, I Want Revenge, and blast through 10 tracks of grungy rock ‘n’ roll with a gothy twist. The music is simple… but the sound is raw. I like how they’ve brought back the solo bass parts, even if it’s not a complex riff. I thought those parts died in the early 2000’s, but Mykel Exner has proven me wrong. Also, the band brings back Dusty Exner’s spine-chilling, aggressive singing and shouting.
You see a lot of things, living life on the road as a band in a van. Some things are awesome, some things are not. Some things are all too common and we roll our eyes at them condescendingly. Some things are grotesquely unusual and our eyeballs pop out of our skulls. That’s okay though, because everyone knows blind people make better musicians. On our current coast-to-coast of this vast and godforsaken land called Canada, these are the places we have been and the things we have seen.
Lineup: Kill Matilda, Booze Cruise and Overtime Heros. The show was a collision of the Kill Matilda “Zombie Apocalypse Canadian 2011 Tour” and the “Booze Cruise” tour. The road dwellers collided at the month old venue, The Bombshell, for a night of punk and rock n’ roll.
Kill Matilda has been going strong, touring hard across Canada getting their name out to the masses. Vocalist and guitarist Dusty Exner recently gave PureGrainAudio a bit of her time to talk about her Fender solid-state head. Read on to learn more about the sound you will hear on stage and on their new album, I Want Revenge.
