Album Review

New Yorkers Kill Your Idols sustain the energy of their debut EP on the full-length No Gimmicks Needed. The band's whiplash hardcore isn't awfully distinctive, although their playing is always tight and their lyrics heartfelt. A bit more coloration and melody would go a long way toward making No Gimmicks Needed a more interesting listen, but the group's intensity nearly compensates for the lack of variation.

Customer Reviews


This band is amazing. Great energy and the music is tight. Do yourself a favor and buy it. If you like sick of it all, ensign, and that style hardcore you'll love this


Formed: 1995 in Long Island, NY

They debuted with a 12" EP on local indie None of the Above, which became a success around their hometown scene and sparked the band to begin touring all around the country. Soon enough, Kill Your Idols had signed with Blackout!...
