I came across the band's name at least once and very possibly on a compilation CD. The band's name reminded me about the 90s coldwave and in fact the album was released by a cult coldwave label Re-constriction which left great albums by such bands like: 16volt, Collide, Diatribe, H3llb3nt, Leaether Strip, Numb, SMP, Society Burning or Tinfed; the label unifying bands with a homogeneous tune.
Killing Floor's music combines punk, hardcore and coldwave vibes with real vocals, drums and lots of real guitars with not much of electronics. You may find echoes of their music (Cold At Night song is a good example) on the two albums by Slave Unit however the sound was explored by others like Society Burning, Diatribe, Contagion (Perfect World), Ministry on older albums (Tear It All Away) and Killing Joke (with no samples, Twelve.Ten.Fourty.Eight).
Unity (Come Together Pt.2) it's my most favourite track on the album, less punk, more coldwave, mysterious, and the longest on the CD. The Way It Goes sounds like a tribute to Sex Pistols, but About To Break brings the hardcore sound. The title song is a typical coldwave track continued by Machines of Loving Grace with that characteristic arrangement which actually couldn’t be associated to any other music style.
Not distracting setlist of songs blended into a harmonious whole could be an interesting item for fans to be put next to Diatribe and Slave Unit CDs. ( Katarzyna NINa Górnisiewicz
