Kyle and Kyle
from Christ Killer is some funny guys and here they answers a lot of
questions from me. November 2014
Please tell me a little bit history about the band?
-Kyle: A few years ago I, Kyle, found out I was jewish. I
wanted to start a new band with my roommate, Kyle, who is also Jewish. I
thought of the name Christ Killer so it had to be a thrash band. We got
Jesse involved cuz he shreds and we worked out a few songs and I wrote some
lyrics and we started trying out singers. Charlie was the only one who was
Jewish and didn't suck.
Please tell me a little about every member in the group
right now age, family, work, interests and something bad about everyone?
Original members? Bands on the side?
-Kyle: I'll do Kyle and Charlie. Kyle is 28 and his dad
is second cousins with Al Pachino. He's a plumber and interested in burritos
and weed and mexican chicks. Kyle is one of the all time laziest people I've
known. Charlie is like 31 or something and his dad was in the military, he
works at a pizza place and does some other stuff, I'm not sure. He's
interested in guns and he misses practice and doesn't sell merch when I tell
him to. Or load gear.
Kyle: I'll do Jesse and Kyle (#2). Jesse is 30 and works
in an awesome pizza shop, lives down the street from us, and is the raddest
metalhead we know. Jesse's dad is named Bad Bob, and is literally the
baddest dude ever. He punched a girl in the face one time, but she deserved
it. Kyle is an engineer, is 30, and is interested in reddit. That’s it. And
writing really clever lyrics. His dad is a handyman, aptly named Handy
Randy. Kyle isn't the best bass player, but we accept him.
Kyle: We're the original members. Me and Kyle live
together and we have a cat named Kyle. Kyle and Jesse are in a band called
Midnight Eagle together, and Jesse is in another band called Bhorelorde.
I can of course hear some GBH, Varukers and Discharge and
of course a little death metal…what about that? Which bands are you being
-Kyle: A couple people have compared us to Slayer, but a
hebrew version. We're into Varukers and Discharge, but we didn't
intentionally try to sound like them. We've been called D-beat, punk, you
name it. We span genres i always say.
Christ Killer where did the name came from… Was it
suggestions on any other name? Which is the best band name ever?
-Kyle: Kyle thought of it.
Kyle: I wanted to take back the slur like black dudes
did. Damn right we killed him and we'll do it again when he came back.
What´s the best thing with playing live?
-Kyle: Playing as fast as we possibly can.
Kyle: Yeah we go as fast as kyle can drum and he always
looks like he's going to die between songs.
And where is best to play?
-Kyle and Kyle: TOWER BAR!
How is it to play this sort of music in your homeland? Is
it a big scene?
Kyle: Do you mean Israel?
Kyle: Nah it's pretty much non-existant.
How would you describe your music in three words?
-Kyle: FAST MACHINE-GUN WEED
What does punk mean to you, is it only a word or is it a
-Kyle: Punk was coopted from the start. It changes over
time, but it's all about not taking anything seriously, especially punk.
How do you see on downloading, mp3 and that stuff?
-Kyle: I'm for it.
Kyle: I'm all for it, I steal all the music I can.
How is it to live in your homeland? Politically?
Kyle: USA is number 1, but politicians can all get
fucked. Too much money in it.
Kyle: All hail Bill Clinton. 666
Is there any good bands from homeland now? ?In your
-Kyle: This is the USA, we invented punk and metal.
Municipal Waste is killing it right now, so is Speedwolf, even though
they're from Denver and have a song about Payton Manning. Gang green is one
of my all-time favorites. From San Diego, hot snakes was the best.
Kyle: Evil army from Tennessee, nails from LA. Battalion
of Saints is from SD. We're the best band in San Diego
What do you know about Sweden? Have you been and here and
Kyle: I went to Sweden 2 years ago in winter and it was
cold as fuck. I won 500 kroner playing blackjack in a hells angel bar in
Stockholm. I thought everybody there listened to metal but everybody I met
listened to house music. It really bummed me out.
Kyle: I've never been to Sweden but I really want to go.
Have you heard any good bands from Sweden?
-Kyle: Dismember is my favorite band from Sweden, and
they broke up in 2011 and it bums me out.
Kyle: All I can think of off the top of my head is the
Hives. Cuz they used to open their show with "Hello we are the Hives, we're
your new favorite band.....FROM SWEEEDENNNN!!!"
We listen to Ace of Bass on the way to every show to get
pumped up. It's tradition.
Your lyrics, who does them and what influences you?
-Kyle: I write 95% of the lyrics and we fill in the rest
Kyle: we all think of funny song titles then you do the
Kyle: I get a clever title first and then fill in the
rest with shit from the bible or jewish culture.
Is there any subject that you never will write anything
-Kyle: There's been a couple times we've backed off from
doing holocaust jokes. We have SOME holocaust jokes but sometimes it's too
Politic and music, does it goes hand in hand? Which is
your most political song? And your most unserious song?
-Kyle: None of our songs our serious.
Best political band/artist?
-Kyle: Napalm Death for sure, dude.
Kyle: Dead Kennedys, The Clash
Do you think that music(lyrics and so on) can change
anyones life, I mean people who listens to music?
You look like King Diamond and sound like hardcoreband,
-Kyle: Mission Accomplished.
Kyle: You're welcome.
Is it important for you to get out physical records? Why
or why not?
-Kyle: Yes because I've always wanted my own record, and
I'm a nerd about it.
Kyle: We've got a record deal in the works that'll be
putting nailed it on wax come the new year.
Please tell me a funny thing which have happened during
your career and under some gig? I can imagine that it´s wild
