"Metal Refuge"

...Definitely HOT, more than just HARD, a sight to be seen and a sound to be heard! The MR had the pleasure of experiencing this band live in Ohio recently, and immediately fell in love with them. Their sound reaches beyond Chimaira, Dry Kill Logic, and other such bands, mainly due to their originality and stage performance. They provide us with a combination of clean singing, OUTRAGEOUS screaming, and a full on head banging - mosh pit experience! Hell! One of the guitarists lost his amp capability at the concert, and instead of merely throwing a fit and storming off stage, he got out in the crowd and unleashed himself to the mercy of the moshers! Gotta love that! ~MR - www.metalrefuge.com


"Scene Regional Beat"



After a year between releases, several gigs under its belt, and a minor name change, PlanetKillSwitch has crept back to the surface. Whereas the band's last effort, Scum of the Planet, didn't balance the industrial and metal realms as well as expected, You Don't Matter flaunts a better sense of direction.

This time around, the Cleveland five-piece heads straight into industrial-flavored metal territory, reminiscent of Roadrunner and Earache's early '90s rosters. The electronics are downplayed, allowing dense guitar work and guttural vocals to stand out -- particularly on the opener, "Deviate." "Joyful Sound" takes a brief detour into goth-rock territory, and some of the later moments veer into tedium ("PE2012" gets mired in chunga-chunga riffs). But overall, PlanetKillSwitch displays a marked improvement. Warning: Rivethead scenesters expecting dance-friendly rockers should touch down elsewhere. - Scene Magazine

Bio

PKS is the result of the efforts of Nave (vocals, keys, percussion), Jacob (vocals, guitar, drums) and War (bass, backup vocs), who until now had only spoken of working together. Joining them are Dawn (guitar) and Dave (guitar). Finishing the assault...A.B.E. (drums), adding the final dimension to the band's sound. They have an impressive performance streak, opening for acts like Dope, Mushroomhead, Bile, Acumen Nation and 216.

Their sound is forged from the harsh, sterile industrial environment and raw, crisp metal guitars mesh with the bizarre influx of trip-hop drum influences. Their topics range across all things that scare and anger us.

With two releases to their name, they don't expect to be stopping anytime soon. "Scum of the Planet" is a raw look into the band's beginnings, featuring tracks like "Almost Human" and "Occupied". Their current release "You don't matter" is a more defined look at the band's current direction. A harsh look at the
future of society and the innermost thoughts of people who have to live in it, aware or not.
