Los Angeles based trio Kyng released their independent debut "Trampled sun" in 2011 but has now signed with Razor and Tie for the new album "Burn the serum", a band that likes to blend 70´s hard rock with grunge and even classic heavy metal.
We get tempo changes, lots and lots of riffs and most important - good songs!
The first single "Electric halo" is a really cool riffrocker that bring thoughts to Chris Cornell and Co without making Kyng a carbon copy, singer/guitarist Eddie Veliz is great at always coming up with strong melodies in the songs.
It´s a very melodic album where my favorites are "Far away", "Lost one" and "Electric halo".
For fans of The Sword, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath
