KILL YOUR HEAD by Hide

Updated: Feb 23


Review by Paul D Houston


The latest release from this dark, industrial-punk band is only a two song thing, but damn if these two songs don't make a deep and heavy impression! Whoa, these were good. First off is a cover of the legendary dirge-rock band, Jesus Lizard and their song, Blockbuster...


Ain't that something? I prefer when an artist does a cover, they take a few chances and embrace the song into their style, rather than staying as true and loyal to the original as possible. I find those kinds of cover songs, where they cover the song beat for beat, note for note, boring as fuck. Instead I prefer something like what Hide did here with this cover of Blockbuster. Yeah, its recognizable as the Jesus Lizard original, but Hide went ahead and put their own shine on it, making it something truly their own. And its better for doing that. Am I right or am I wrong?


The second song on this release though, is my favorite. WELL FED FUCK, also a cover, is everything I want in a dark industrial song. A heavy churning rhythm and captivating sonic arrangements. The original be damned. Check it out...



I don't think thats a song for everyone, but I can't be the only person who's gonna love the shit out of it.


Do yourself a favor and go get this two song release here
