Sister Kill Cycle
'Massacre The Guilty'
(Negative Image Entertainment/Wicked Disc Records)

If anyone out there in CRYPTland is producing one of those post-apocalyptic “Road Warrior” type science fiction films, you’ll be happy to know that SISTER KILL CYCLE has already made the soundtrack for you, with MASSACRE THE GUILTY.

There are only 6 songs on this EP, but they’ve all got that modern goth-industrial-rave-rock feel…ten bucks says some ravers out there are trying to dance to this right now (then of course, ravers will dance to anything.) Lead singer Raven Chain has the popular Marilyn Manson howl down pat, while Mykill (guitars), Suicide (bass), and Jon Chain (drums) crank out a loud, solid (if slightly monotonous) nu-metal beat…luckily keyboardist Jensen is there to add some classy tones to the mix. Lyrics are chock-full out modern angst: the cheerful chorus of “Guilty” is “I’ve got a gun in my hand…now you’re gonna die.” Although there’s a bit of variety, too: “Today” sounds like an actual love song, while “Green Fairy” praises Absinthe.

While not exactly brimming with originality, Sister Kill Cycle is definitely in the right place at the right time. If you’re into the heavy-industrial-rave-rock thing, Sister Kill Cycle’s 'Massacre The Guilty' will fit neatly into your collection…but they’ll need to come up with something that makes them stand out, if they don’t want to get lost in the rave-rock shuffle. -K.K.

"Can we dim the lights? I want it to look like fuckin' death up here...."

".....as the lights faded from a brilliant red to an ominous green then further down the spectrum to a dim purple, Sister Kill Cycle began playing a song that I had witnessed the birth of. "A Cold Dark Place" began slowly, almost as a funeral dirge would. As the fog and cigarette smoke ascended the stage, the audience realized almost at once that this wasn't a song that one could mosh to, and a quiet hush fell over most of the room. Drums, bass, and keys went swirling round and round in a melody that could almost speak all by itself. Slowly, as the crowd and band got into a rhythm, everyone began swaying and nodding to the beat. Like a stroke of lightning from a summer storm, a guitar riff shattered the trance-mood and began accentuating the song almost erotically.

Upon closing my eyes I thought at once of the quiet place in the back of my mind where I sometimes go merely to think or create. Most times I need a sort of rhythm in that part of my mind to make it work properly. "A Cold Dark Place" is one of those songs that makes me feel cold and angry, yet I can easily see two lovers dancing slowly in a candlelit room......"

NEW PORT RICHEY- After touring for most of 2002, Sister Kill Cycle decided to relocate to singer Raven Chain's home state of Florida.
January saw the release of "Massacre the Guilty," with the new line-up in Tampa revealing a more distinctive sound. AT 10PM Saturday, Sister Kill Cycle brings its rocking show to the
Downtown Lounge, 6220 Grand Blvd. New Port Richey, Florida. Describing the band's music is "kind of hit and Miss" vocalist Chain said. "Some might describe us as hard rock while others
might describe us as an industrial band". The difference lies in the use of electronic drums and synths with more of a standard rock writing style as opposed to the norm of what people
would call industrial. Joining Chain on stage are Mykill Mayhem, the "Sonic Terrorist" on guitar, Genocide on Synths, Shade on Bass Guitars and Krash on Drums. Sister Kill Cycle has stirred interest all over the world with their intense stage show and high energy songs from live performances to appearances on TV shows and the NAMM conventions.One production executive,
Kinberly Forbert of AMbush Music Productions, described them as "The most dangerous band in the world". "We show a lot of aggression while on stage! Not towards our fans but towards one another while performing. It's like war out there at times." Chain said. Sister Kill Cycle launched it's debut release "Massacre the Guilty" in 2002 and toured around the country. The band has received airplay on commercial and college radio through out the country and Europe. " The overall idea is that Rock and Roll is not dead. The days of real showmen are still alive and well, people want their heroes." - Mark Beyer- Suncoast news
