Be Human

Rock - Hard Rock

"The Killer Dolphin with Rabies have been kicking around Madison since 2005, but numerous lineup changes and the death of a member has delayed them from ever releasing any substantial recordings. At least, until now. On October 30th the band's debut album Be Human will be unleashed upon Madison during a release party at The Frequency with help from Dissent and Revolt, Cleobury, and The Unnecessary Gunpoint Lecture. In anticipation of the release I blackmailed one band members with compromising pictures to get an advance copy. Be Human is an ambitious debut record, incorporating numerous genres with technical proficiency. And though The Killer Dolphin with Rabies are for all intents and purposes a metal band it is hard to ignore some of the more subtle influential tinges of jazz, hardcore, and math-rock that are scattered throughout the album. I don't know if the band shares my sense of irony but they open Be Human with "If I'm Not Me" a short electronic introduction that samples Arnold Schwarzenegger repeating the line "Get your ass to Mars" from the 1990 cheese fest film Total Recall. On the second track the band brings on the aural assault of their set list staple "Get Your Ass to Mars." On Mars the band tells a science fiction tale that questions modern technology and it's purposes through Mark Osbourne's primal yawps and the tempo changes that lace the rest of the album. The Killer Dolphins are a lot more cerebral than most of their machismo counterparts relying more on song writing than bravado. Though brainy and well structured, the band still slays with the best of them but it is their mellower, if you can call it that, songs that are the most effective on Be Human.
