Idle Will Kill

Bringing an all new sound to the punk scene, Osker apologizes for nothing and says just about everything. Emotion drips from this album and the band's sheer musical and compositional talent is fully evident. Above all, "Idle Will Kill" represent two things: truth and talent. Guided by astonishingly diverse and accomplished songwriting, "Idle Will Kill" solidifies Osker's intention not to fit the mold of being just another punk (or anything else for that matter) band. Front-man Devon Williams puts it simply: "There are no extremes on 'Idle Will Kill,' just pure sincerity."

Teen Angst At Its Musical...

Idle Will Kill reeks of teenage existential angst,but that's the main source of their charm.This album captures the essence of what makes punk music great - being vulnerable, honest and fiery all at the same time.Osker's refusal to be anything other than themselves, even if that often entails sacrificing vocal quality for full emotional expression, is what makes this album so appealing. it's just such a shame that this young, talented band did not enjoy the success they so completely deserve
