KILLED IN ACTION / CRUCIAL UNIT
Split 7" (Red vinyl) (Fast For Life Records)

By: Jeb Branin

This is one of those records that when you put it on you end up bouncing off the walls and frashing all over the damn place. KILLED IN ACTION may wear their CAPITALIST CASUALTIES influences on their sleeves but they are stellar students because they have created a sound that is almost the equal of the mighty C.C. for sheer thrashing intensity and pure adrenaline laced hardcore. Fans of W.H.N.? need to add K.I.A. to their list of initial bands worth tracking down. Besides any band that actually sings a song about being Star Wars toy collecting dorks is mandatory. On the flip side of this record you have CRUCIAL UNIT. Barry Manilow may write the songs that make the whole world sing but CRUCIAL UNIT write the songs that make the whole world thrash. Their sound is a mixture of mosh, HELLNATION screech, and late 80s HERESY styled metalcore. They are one of the few bands you are going to hear that understand sing-a-longs and thrash can go hand in hand.15
