Editors’ Notes

During the height of its reign the mighty Wu-Tang Clan co-signed countless affiliates and satellite artists. Many were marginally skilled friends and families, but one of those crews was really something special. Their name was Killarmy. Comprised of (RZA's brother) 9th Prince, Islord, Dom Pachino, Shogun Assassin, Baretta 9, Killa Sin, and chief producer 4th Disciple, the Ohio-based squadron blazed a path of destruction and chaos in its music, focusing unapologetically hardcore lyrics on world war, organized terrorism, shadow governments, and social collapse. Stylistically Killarmy sounds a lot like first generation Wu, with posse-cut rhyme volleys, cinematic samples, and dirty beats that are alternately melancholy and triumphant. Though released in 1997, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars plays like the perfect post-traumatic stress soundtrack, essentially predicting the soon-to-come holy wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on military-minded cuts like "Dress to Kill," "Blood for Blood," and "5 Stars." Killarmy went on to release two more solid albums, before fading into obscurity shortly after 9/11.   

Customer Reviews

Part of Hip Hop's Holy Grail

If you don't have this album----- your hip-hop collection is INCOMPLETE. This album is superior to any hip hop album that has been released in 2008.

Must have

Out of probably hundreds or maybe thousands of albums I've listened to, this is one of maybe 3 or 4 I can listen to from the first to last track without skipping a song. I wouldn't think twice about ranking right there with It Was Written and Cuban Linx(probably only other albums I can listen through non-stop), only difference being it obviously wasn't as influential, but every bit as good in my opinion. If someone asks me about what music I'm into I'll usually throw Killarmy out as one of the first groups I name, not only because they are one of my favorites, but its a great test to see really how far past MTV Jams and the radio they listen to get their music.

very good

This cd is ridiculous, it makes me wonder why no one knows them really but they r amazing
