Kill Your Idols
From Companionship to Competition (Side One Dummy)

By: Mike SOS

Kill Your Idols is a long running NY hardcore punk troupe whose latest 15-track CD exemplifies hardcore in the truest sense. Relentless and unforgiving, KYI attack your ears like a bulldozer leveling a building, leaving nothing behind in its wake. Angst ridden and devastatingly merciless, this veteran band works from the foundation of bands like Poison Idea, Sick of It All, and Cro-Mags, and puts its definitive stomping stamp on tracks like "15 Minutes" and the aptly titled "Only Dicks Don't Like Black Flag", creating a maelstrom full of fierce riffs and a flurry of furious rhythms. Quite possibly the most crushing hardcore punk record you'll hear from a band currently active, From Companionship to Competition is a failsafe album capable of mass destruction and finds Kill Your Idols not only at the top of its game, but on top of the hardcore genre as well.
