Peace Killers: Peace Killers
West Coast stoner rockers fail to find a cutting edge
Don’t be misled by the moniker; Peace Killers are not some horrible spiky-haired oiks from Sweden who wish they were Discharge.
Instead, we get nine tracks of kinda bland stoner rock. They’re from the Sacramento hometown of Will Haven and Deftones, which they mention in their press blurb, but that has no bearing whatsoever on the music. They also mention Black Sabbath, Fu Manchu and Queens Of The Stone Age, with rather more hope than accuracy, but don’t be expecting to find the next Paranoid, King Of The Road or Rated R here. More like Rated C+. It’s not that the music is particularly bad, it’s just not particularly good.
