Artist of the day: Killer Without a Cause
Not all teenage bands list Guns 'N' Roses and Black Sabbath among their top influences. But like We Are Scientists and Eagles of Death Metal, Tampa‚Äôs Killer Without a Cause ‚Äî singer Kyle McPherson, 17, guitarist Matt Cazes, 16 and Matt‚Äôs brother Brett, 13 on drums ‚Äî are unapologetic in their love for classic rock head-bangers. (The band‚Äôs name even comes from a Thin Lizzy tune.)
The choppy guitars and drum solo ‚Äî yes, a drum solo ‚Äî on Edge of a Knife make you wanna ‚Äúrock this f---er til the break of dawn,‚Äù as the lyrics put it. They're also working on their debut album.
"The album should be done in mid-April and then a CD release party in May," Matt said. In the meantime, click here to listen to an mp3 of Killer Without a Cause's Where Did It All Go.
