A lot if with guitars readers will have noticed that recently I haven’t been uploading as many reviews as I once did, I’m now averaging 4 to 6 a month instead of 4 to 6 a week. Besides work and things like that the main reason is because I haven’t been receiving albums that I feel I could give a justified review.
Thankfully Kyng’s second album Burn the Serum is an utter masterpiece, it isn’t exactly pure metal or pure rock and roll it’s a happy yet kick ass medium. I am happy that on this Friday evening whilst I’m sipping away at a cheeky Tuborg that Kyng have brought some cheeky southern Californian attitude to my evening.
If I had to choose two bands that I could relate Kyng to it would have to be Black Sabbath and Soundgarden, Kyng seem to be all about the groove and the chorus which is delivered with tactful accuracy and supported with superb musicianship. Songs such as Self Medicated Man and In The Land of Pigs are songs that with the right exposure could be cult classics just like many of Kyng’s influences before them.
When I got my hands on ‘Burn the Serum’ I didn’t know what I expected but with the album artwork I expected something much darker and very badly produced, like a lot of press packs I receive but I’m absolutely stoked to say that Kyng are for all fans of heavy music and it’s great to listen to a band who are doing their own thing and not following the standard boring trend. 7.8/10
Listen to ‘Electric Halo’
