  • Quadkiller plays Round 4 of the 2012 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase.

Quadkiller's bio describes the duo as "hip-hop meets electronic metal meets classical hardcore." That sounds about as apt as anything else I could imagine. Ant Thomaz is a rapper from Baton Rouge and Adam Lansky is a producer from South Florida. Noted musical influences include Tchaikovsky, Jay-Z and Nine Inch Nails, a disparate sonic stew epitomized by the ferocious, fractured "The Car Crash." The band's subject matter often addresses topics of poverty, social and economic injustice and critiques of the type of winner-takes-all capitalism that has become commonplace across the nation and the world.
