    Default What does "The Killing Side" even mean?

    I think it was Ross Hogarth who made the comment "It's the killing side of Van Halen at the top of their game" Which sounds all well and good but would someone like to expound on what the phrase "killing side" even means? I've never heard it before.

    First of all, how could you come to the conclusion it could be negative in the context of his comment??? Really, it's come to this? Decyphering every word uttered about this album?

    And you've never heard the phrase "killing" before to mean "great success, incredible, etc?" You've never heard someone say a band "killed it" live or monetarily "to make a killing?"

    No I just have never heard the term killing side. Killer sure. Killed it yeah. Killing side no. I just have no idea what it means. I assume from the tone of it it means vh is just killing it, and he just said something else.

    I think you are overanalyzing my question and taking it word for word.

    I honestly just had never heard that term before. I googled it because I had never heard it and came up with nothing. Most of it was in regard to healthy side effects and killing side effects which is bad. Or it was that statement about the vh record. That term doesn't exist according to google except in this context.

    So Ross Hogarth made up a term apparently.

    The killing side of me I've heard. I don't know what that means either though. The killing side of war. Google it.

    'Killing' is like 'Bad Ass' which could mean 'Mean' and by that I don't mean 'Nasty' which might mean 'Down n' Dirty'. Let me know if you need more clarification.

    right what does it mean to you? It gives me the impression the album is more hard edged and raw sounding. Maybe even a little on the dark side. He didn't say the lighter side of Van Halen or dark side. He said killing side. So I get the impression classic vh sounding. Like Drop dead legs sort of stuff. Me Wise Magic. I tend to think it will be a mix of both. Sammy era Humans Being and Up for Breakfast strike me as killing side. Just in your face rock. Not really messing around.

    Wow........its come to this? A thread to analyse one sentence that someone said about the album about 3 months ago. From two words we can tell which classic VH album it will be most like?

    They REALLY need to get this album out.

    How I have used killing or kills for the last 40 odd years before Google and JudgementDay told us that we can only use words in the context of Googles strict definitions and guidelines.

    "That song kills me every time I hear it." - means it is good and I like it.

    "That solo kills me every time." - means the solo is good and I like it.

    "That solo slays me every time." Same meaning, alternative word to kills. - Means the solo is good and I like it.

    The "killing side of Van Halen" as far as I interpreted it when I first saw this quote probably pointed to the more aggressive heavier side of Van Halen but what the fuck would I know.

    When I think "killing side of Van Halen" I think Mean Street, but maybe I'm just thick.
