HomeMusicReview: Brothers Keeper Brothers Keeper “Fantasy Killer” (Trustkill Records) When I was in high school I was the singer in a band called Brothers Keeper. Unfortunately, we sucked. These guys don’t, which explains why theyre out touring and making music while Im sitting at my computer scratching my toes. Fantasy Killer packs a full frontal hardcore assault meshed with smart lyrics and melodies thicker than Rosie ODonnell. Brothers Keeper reminds me quite a bit of a less rap-influenced Rage Against the Machine, as Mike Skis vocals encompass that edgy De La Rocha indictment towards society, while still flowing nicely with the music itself. The heavy guitars and pounding bass perfectly set a frenetic pace that Skis vocals mercilessly rip apart. Anyone stoked on Boy Sets Fire and Snapcase will definitely want to check this one out. As an added bonus, Fantasy Killer is an enhanced CD, complete with a video for I Shot JFK and a couple of live performances at some high school in Syracuse, NY. The video is decent, but in both of the live shows Skis vocals are turned down way too low, and Brothers Keeper makes a virtual cacophony on the schools basketball court. If you’re going to go to the trouble to attach some footage of yourself on a CD, at least make it quality. Unless you want to windup writing reviews.
