A "supergroup" used to be something that was exciting, but these days every other band seems to be comprised of ex-members of every band from every genre. Generation Kill got their start a couple of years ago with their release of Red, White & Blood on Season Of Mist Records, but I hadn't noticed. It wasn't until their current single "Prophets Of War" started to get constant play on Sirius XM's Liquid Metal that I even took notice of the band. So I was kind of surprised to learn that it featured Rob Dukes, current singer of Exodus, and guys who have done time in Pro-Pain, M.O.D., Mutilation and Merauder.

As I mentioned, "Prophets Of War" was my first taste of Generation Kill, and it wasn't initially positive. The elongated melodious intro takes up more than half of the song and while it isn't bad, I found myself changing the channel long before they thrashed into the faster portion of the song. Personally, I much prefer them at their fastest, but according to their press release they are "getting away from the always in your face screaming aggressive attitude." Okay, that is fine, I can handle that, but the problem with all the melodic moments is that it sounds too standard. At their best they sound like a lesser version of John Bush era Anthrax and at their worst they sound like common modern rock with a little less cheese.

The shame is that when they turn up the intensity and embrace their thrash and hardcore roots they do get me excited. However, I am left to wonder if it is the contrast between the lame typical radio metal and decent thrash that makes what might be sub-par thrash seem better than it is. Perhaps I should have given the record a few more listens and put a little more scrutiny into it before making that kind of declaration, but I think I might be right.

My favorite song on the record is the title track that closes it out. It is pretty much a go(!) for the throat hardcore scorcher and again confirms what the band is capable of if they chose to put their foot on the gas. Unfortunately, it appears like that isn't the goal for Generation Kill and they are happy to slow things down and play the melodic thrash/rock that takes up most of the space on We're All Gonna Die. I don't blame them for wanting to do something different from their other projects, but I can't say I am all that interested.
