Unnecessary I

Rated 3.25/5 (65%) (4 Votes)

Killers Lodge is a three-piece outfit that hails from Genoa, Italy and plays a loud and fast dirty rock and metal style that brings to mind early 80s Motörhead. There are plenty of fast riffs, powerful bass lines that double as rhythm guitar on the solos and double-kick drumming. Even the lineup is Motörhead-esque with main man John Killerbob handling vocals along with bass. Their debut full-length, Unnecessary I, is the sort of album that you just put on and bang your head. The songwriting is simple verse-chorus-verse-chorus-solo for the most part, and while there aren't any real standout tracks or super-catchy hooks, there aren't any tracks you'll need to skip, either. The sound is thick and fuzzy and I'll bet it goes over well live. The vocals are a work in progress and have grown on me over several listens despite being a gruff shout that is rather limited. Fans of Motörhead albums like Orgasmatron and Iron Fist should get a lot mileage out of Unnecessary I. And if Killers Lodge can summon up an "Ace of Spades" or "Overkill," they'll really be on to something.
