Brainkiller

Brainkiller has captivated audiences across the USA, Canada and Mexico with "hypnotic landscapes that gallivant through freewheeling jazz, avant-classical and art-rock territories" (Phoenix New Times) since their inception in 2000. The trio of Brian Allen, Jacob Koller and Hernan Hecht create a powerful and astonishingly unique style, owing as much to Coltrane and Monk as Led Zeppelin, Xenakis, Cobain and Piazzola. Their anticipated studio release captures their wildly imaginative and diverse ideas with a focused energy, creating other layers of abstract visual imagery in the process, as Pitchfork describes: "Despite all manner of diversions and mood changes, the direction never seems to change

Brainkiller: Colourless Green Superheroes

Read "Colourless Green Superheroes" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Al secondo album dopo il pirotecnico debutto di The Infiltration, il trio denominato Brainkiller colpisce ancora (in senso figurato, s'intende...) licenziando un album che definisce ulteriormente la loro schizofrenica e multicolore visione musicale. Colourless Green Superheroes, è un frullatore dove tutto è concesso, dove gli ingredienti base--il gusto per l'improvvisazione del jazz, l'energia epidermica e immediata ...

Read "Colourless Green Superheroes" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


RareNoise Records has made a cottage industry of attracting talent that not only doesn't color within the lines, but erases the lines altogether. Brainkiller is no exception to this approach. Comprised of the unlikely assembly of keyboards (Jacob Koller), trombone (Brian Allen), and drums (Hernan Hecht), Brainkiller floats down the same river navigated recently by Berserk! ...

Se come diceva Zappa il jazz non è morto ma ha solo un buffo o strano odore, gli aromi, o meglio i profumi, che emanano da The Infiltration sono davvero unici. E non poteva essere diversamente visto che ci troviamo di fronte a un trio formato da trombone, tastiere elettriche, percussioni varie ed elettronica. Qui i ...

Brainkiller: The Infiltration

Read "The Infiltration" reviewed by Mark F. Turner


With a name like Brainkiller, it's easy to imagine a punk band thrashing the noise to a frenzied crowd of head-bangers. While the idea is not entirely a stretch in terms of The Infiltration's energy, there are clear differences: first, instead of the usual guitar or piano-led ensemble, there's an uncommon trio of trombone, keys, and ...
