Kill To Kill – Fighter Album Review

A lot of bands today seem to like going for ironically harsh-sounding names and album titles; punching against the hipster grain is Kill To Kill, whose Fighter EP sounds a lot like a parking lot brawl after a hardcore show. Listen to “Radical Flyer” – DOWNLOAD MP3 Forget exploration and experimentation. That shit’s weak. Fighter...Read...
