Jim Jones and the Kool-Ade Kids
Trust Me
2024 Dark Descent

Jim Jones And The Kool-Ade Kids are not what they seem…there are no Jims involved, nor are any of the members partial to said flavored drink mix (but more on that below)...and then there’s the heaviness… oh Lord the heaviness! Unlike what the band tag might suggest, the unsuspecting listener is served crushing sounds reminiscent of Dream Death, Hellhammer, Winter, and even Possessed. A grinding cross-over brew of sludgy proto-death metal, thrash, and hardcore-punk awaits! First released back in 1986, Dark Descent Records have truly dug up a lost Michigan gem!

“We formed as a hardcore band, which should be obvious from the name,” explains guitarist Paul Pretzer. “Like many our age, we started out loving bands like Black Sabbath, but found hardcore as we searched for music that was more aggressive and urgent, and that we felt we could relate to more as far as socially relevant themes and topics, stuff with which we could identify. By the time we were writing and recording Trust Me, I was just trying to combine my love of music like Black Sabbath, with that heaviness, with my love of bands like Battalion Of Saints, who were aggressive and raw.”
