REVIEW: A Killer's Confession - 'The Indifference Of Good Men'



A Killer's Confession, the band led by vocalist Waylon Reavis (former vocalist of Mushroomhead) have just released their new sophomore album ‘The Indifference Of Good Men’ yesterday the 18th October 2019 via Wake Up! Music Group. This album is the follow up to the bands critically acclaimed debut album ‘Unbroken’. The album sees a new direction in sound for the band whilst maintaining their signature sound created in their debut.

Opening song ‘It’s Not Too Late’ features a fast crushing guitar intro with demanding spoken vocals that keep you captivated before the fiercer vocals come in. This is very dynamic, melodic, unpredictable and exciting, making for a perfect way to kick things off and leaves you hungry for more…

New single ‘Numb’ follows which begins with an atmospheric sorrowful intro paired with soothing clean vocals, later it goes on to feature an infectiously catchy powerful chorus. This is a soaring and high impact lead track which is extremely slick and well-executed.

Official video for single 'Numb':



‘Trust Me’ opens in a chaotic fashion with unwinding guitars and loud crashing drums. This is the heaviest offering so far with industrial nu-metal vibes which takes us back to their debut sound. It contains massive riffs, angry vocals and is brutal throughout.

‘Angel On The Outside’ opens on a very ambient epic start and remains so throughout, being beautiful and resonant. This is a must-hear hard alternative ballad which offers something different for the band but is expertly done and demonstrates their songwriting abilities further.

The slower-paced ‘The Shore’ opens on a delicate serene yet slightly sinister note then picks up pace ready to crush you. This is more of a slow-burning progressive track but is also the most diverse and ambitious song featured.

‘One Step’ cranks up the heavy with an industrial brutal sound yet again and features good use of electronic sounds which is seen throughout this release. ‘I Wish’ is a massive soaring offering, being very atmospheric and layered. There is a good balance of soft and heaviness and is very emotive with well-written lyrics.

Final song ‘Render’ closes the release on a lighter stripped back yet dark melancholic note, it is another slower atmospheric and resonant offering but is just as captivating as their heavier songs and makes for an interesting and well-rounded way to end their sophomore.

This new album is extremely melodic yet crushing still with a fiercer heavier side, especially aided by the crunchy guitars and heavy electronic layers. They have mastered the art and balance of soft and heavy ratio delivering a sonically creative and varied sophomore which is hard-hitting on all fronts. It is dynamic, energetic and offers something for everyone to enjoy and appreciate within the metal scene. The band have evolved wonderfully since their debut, expanding on their signature sound whilst offering something fresh and ambitious.

We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
