  • Like most people, I was introduced to the music of CKY (Camp Kill Yourself) through “Jackass” and the like (afterall, drummer Jess Margera is Bam Margera’s brother). When I heard “Flesh Into Gear” rolling over the credits for “Jackass: The Movie,” I knew I had to check into the band. “Infiltrate-Destroy-Rebuild” is CKY’s second studio album, and some of the most explosive and unique hard-rock songs of the past few years are contained within. The band takes elements from hardcore and heavy metal and fuse them seamlessly with Deron Miller’s equally abrasive and melodic vocals. The band seems to work very well together, the chemistry shows through, and it’s a mature effort, even if the group’s foray into home videos is a bit immature (but nevertheless amusing). The heavy dirge-like “Escape From Hellview” kicks the album off on the right foot. “Flesh Into Gear” and “Frenetic Amnesic” are more groove oriented, and compliment the more straight-forward metal tunes like “Sink Into The Underground” and “Sporadic Movement.” “Close Yet Far” is my personal favorite song on here, and is the closest the band gets to ballad territory. Overall, it’s a solid album. The disc can appeal to just about any fan of hard-rock. It may be a bit brief at only 10 tracks and 33 minutes, but it is perfect the way it is. CKY seem to be on the verge of big things, they have a rapidly growing fanbase and there is certainly not a shortage of material from the band, whether it’s in the form of their music or in their insane home videos. Plus, the disc is dirt cheap, so what more do I have to do to convince you?
