KILLER BE KILLED, who released their critically-acclaimed sophomore album, “Reluctant Hero”, today via Nuclear Blast Records, have also simultaneously unveiled an animated video for ‘From A Crowded Wound’. Watch the video here:

Ben Koller said of the song: “’From a Crowded Wound’ is the creeping punisher on this record, a lumbering steamroller laying a trail of sleek acid slime from beginning to end.”
Costin Chioreanu, who has previously worked on videos for Ghost, Napalm Death and Corrosion of Conformity, created the visually stunning clip.
The band has been counting down the days to the album’s release with Sirius XM Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin, with exclusive interviews and additional previews from the 11-song collection. The special programming continues through this Sunday. The musicians have also posted a series of interviews about the album, which can be viewed on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel (Songwriting: https://youtu.be/UoxUndxPu4A, Recording: https://youtu.be/x5h-WTA2Z4k, About “Inner Calm From Outer Storms” and “Dreams Gone Bad”: https://youtu.be/H34mnoVqfmU, and Album, Artwork and Vocals: https://youtu.be/PpaZXBiS0nI).
