Biography

Boasting a line up that includes members of such influential metal bands as HATEBREED, DOWN, CROWBAR, and more, KINGDOM OF SORROW has arrived to stake its claim as the band that lives up to its super group status.

The seeds of KINGDOM OF SORROW were sown over a decade ago when a 16 year old HATEBREED front man (and avid CROWBAR fan) Jamey Jasta introduced himself to DOWN/CROWBAR ... Read more in Amazon's Kingdom of Sorrow Store

Editorial Reviews

Metal legends Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) and Kirk Windstein (Down, Crowbar) return with Behind The Blackest Tears, the second album from their acclaimed super-group Kingdom of Sorrow. Behind The Blackest Tears pushes their legendary songwriting talents even further as evidenced by the unforgettable "Enlightened to Extinction", the devastating "God's Law in the Devil's Land", the title track, and the fragile, haunting "From Heroes to Dust". With a sound as large as their reputations, and some of the best songwriting the genre has seen in years, Behind The Blackest Tears is destined to become a instant genre classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous sophmore release! July 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
In my humble opinion, this album is a perfect follow-up to and a very natural progression from their self-titled debut which I also liked very much. There are no doubt some very strong similarities between this album and their first one but there are also some very big differences as well. The first thing that I noticed was that this record doesn't seem to be dominated so much by the hardcore influences that Jasta brings from Hatebreed. Don't get me wrong, it's definitely there but in a much more balanced way. Their self-titled debut was indeed heavy but to me it felt too much like another Hatebreed album with Kirk sharing vocal duties. Behind The Blackest Tears feels and sounds a little different to me in this regard. The tempo on many of the songs seems a little slower. Not to the point that the listener gets lulled to sleep or loses interest but in a way that creates a bit more heaviness & balance and seems to bring out a little more of the sludgey sound that Crowbar is so well known for. Also, the vocal parts in each song seem to have been arranged with more precision & forethought so that Kirk & Jamey actually do a better job of complimenting each other.

To sum it up, it just sounds like a more balanced album to me. The original sound and all of the heaviness is still here. It just got a little refinement this time around. Just don't make the mistake of assuming that "balanced" means weak. This album is heavier than an anvil to the head and is an absolute BEAST! I have had it in almost constant rotation since it's release and it gets better every time I hear it. If you don't have it or haven't heard it yet, by all means....get off your ass and do so. It is more than worth the purchase price. You can't go wrong with this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A+ Sophmore Album July 20, 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This album is excellent. There's more melody and Jasta actually sings on this one compared to the nonstop yelling on the debut. Kirk still pounds out slow heavy riffage! BUY THIS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying sludgecore March 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Two of metal's busiest heavyweights, Jamey Jasta (of Hatebreed and Icepick fame), and Kirk Windstein (Crowbar, Down) crossed paths in 2008, forming a sludgecore supergroup named Kingdom Of Sorrow, and releasing a debut that shared that same name. And now, with their much anticipated sophomore effort, 2010's "Behind The Blackest Tears," they're at it again!

So what does K.O.S. sound like? Well, the answer to that is simple enough: They sound, non-surprisingly, like Hatebreed covering Crowbar. They're a little bit more about Crowbar riffing than they are hardcore, but still, the influences from the latter genre are most definitely in place, here. There are also a few traces of metalcore and groove metal present in the arrangements. In fact, some of the songs start out sounding like an Exhorder/Pantera-esque groove metal anthem before proceeding to get all doomy on you. And plus, there are some crust punk tinges and industrial-like breakdowns to be had, here, as well.

But even if Kingdom Of Sorrow are a bit predictable, there is at least one thing that is surprising about them, and that is how well Jamey can carry a tune. See, he occasionally dips into soulful clean singing, as he does in "The Death We Owe," and the commanding, Fear Factory-like set opener, "Enlightened To Extinction," where he intertwines his household bellow with melodic backing vocals in the choruses. Therefore, at their heaviest, the band attack with a ferocity (and, not to mention, some of Windstein's godly riffage) that leaves the listener limp; but at their most melodic, they are downright tuneful, docile, and pleasant-sounding.
