Editorial Reviews

The Los Angeles trio, Kyng s roar could easily tip the Southern California Richter Scale. On their second full-length album and first for Razor & Tie, Burn The Serum, the trio harks back to the essence of heavy rock 'n' roll, forging thunderous percussion to lightning hot riffs driven by a divine vocal howl. At the same time, they keep their eyes wide open towards the future.

Breaking out of the City of Angels in 2011, the group's debut Trampled Sun landed shining critical acclaim for its "California Heavy" sound merging the metallic meanderings of Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age with the timeless scope of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. They hit the road with everybody from The Sword and Clutch to Trivium and Megadeth even being picked to play at Metallica's first-ever Orion Music + More festival. However, everything was merely leading up to Burn The Serum. Heavy Riffs. Melodic vocals. A balance between metal and rock n roll.

To put it lightly, I really do not think that there is anything special about this band at all. I saw them as one of the openers for In Flames, and got to experience just how unsatisfactory they were, at least from my standpoint. Honestly, I have seen high school-aged rock bands who can play better than them. This album of theirs sounds no different. To me, all the songs just get too boring, too fast, but then again, someone has to love it, right? All that said, I can honestly say that I do not find Kyng to be that much more impressive than Nickelback or Fall Out Boy (which isn't really that hard to do), and nothing on this sophomore album does anything for me.

Also, before anyone posts here, let me just say this: Whenever I see comments like, "I'd like to see you do better!" or "You're obviously jealous!" or "They're probably making more money than you!" and the ever-so-famous "How is the view from your mother's basement?" then I know I've won. Whenever anyone resorts to the jealousy card, or tells me to try and do what (name of said band/artist) do/does, or makes childish assumptions about my lifestyle, that tells me that they don't have an argument, and cannot find any effective ways to invalidate my opinion, simply because they cannot handle anyone whose opinion of their saviors is even marginally less appreciative than theirs (This means you, Arachnophiliac, fka "Vikki"). To those people, I will say this: Please learn to accept opinions. I have every bit as much of a right to express mine, as you do yours. Kindly leave! Thank you.

In short, if you like these guys, then that's awesome! If you enjoy their music, then how could I not be happy for you?

I saw Kyng at Fort Rock in Aoril & they were amazing!! I had heard Eddie Trunk recommend this album on "That Netal Show" & was excited to see them live, to see if they were really good, They are, & one listen to the tracks-Ekectric Halo, Sewn Shut, Self Medicated Man, & In the Land of Pigs-will convince everyone that they are THAT GOOD!! They have an early Sabbath sound & Eddie Vieliz is a really good vocalist. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves sledgehammer riffing, throbbing bass, & pounding drums!! Great album from a band on the rise!!!

Burn The Serum is nothing short of a modern vintage classic. The follow up to the bands first album, Trampled Sun, finds the group's sound a bit more refined and finely tuned. The big riffs are still there, Tony's bludgeoning bass lines are still there and Pepe is still beating the drums within an inch of their life. The difference here seems to be Eddie Veliz command of harmony and melody. The songwriting is well honed, masterfully crafted songs like Sunday Smile, Faraway and The Ode show a depth that was flirted with before but has come to full bloom this time around. Fans of the frenetic pace of Kyng's previous effort will get their dose as well with the title track as well as the runaway freight train that is Big Ugly Me. For folks looking for the "radio" track, check out the first single Electric Halo. It provides a glimpse of what's new about Kyng and serves as the perfect stake to these guys claim to the throne.

I admit it took a few listens for Burn the Serum to grow on me. And I never really loved their debut album. But one night I was listening and the light came on. I really opened up to it and now I can't stop listening! As other reviewers have noted, the sledgehammer riffs are thick, crunchy and tuneful. Think of it as Black Sabbath meets Queens of the Stone Age.

Sometimes the melodies require a few listens to break through but when they do, you'll appreciate the quality of the sophisticated songwriting and especially the musicianship. The drummer for this band is right up there with Mike Portnoy for me, he's that good. The bottom line is that this band ROCKS, but with talent, skill and melody.

Favorite tracks include Electric Halo, Self Medicated Man, In the Land of Pigs, Sunday Smile and especially Lost One, whose jet-fueled riff will have you driving down the road at 100 mph if you're not careful! I urge prospective listeners to give this release more than one listen, it will make sense and then blow your mind!

This album, much like the first Kyng album, has what many other albums today lack....longevity. I know I will be rocking both of these for years to come. If you are a fan of rock music, this is a must have in your collection. Don't let one of Americas fastest up and coming bands get by you without a thorough listen. Grinding riffs and soulful vocals accompanied by beats by one of todays biggest lesser known percussionists, Pepe Clarke, make this one of the most exciting releases of 2014. You will hear more form this trio for years to come....and my prediction................... is that they will continue to never disappoint. Rock on Kyng!

Great CD. I grew up in the Sabbath era, as a fan, and although I'd never compare bands such as Kyng or any of the similar type of bands of today, I will say they do a great job playing that style of hard rock or metal. Bands new or old can only be what they are Sabbath was Sabbath and Kyng is Kyng. As long as you rock and play the riffs then you are doing it right. If you like this sound, you'll like Kyng.
