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.

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!

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.

Like a few reviewers, I discovered Kyng through listening to Eddie Trunk playing "Electric Halo" on his show on Trunk Nation on Sirius XM Channel 39. I can see why Eddie plays this track frequently because this is easily the best song on Burn the Serum. In fact, I believe it is the best hard rock song of 2014. There are other strong tracks on this album, most notably the driving "Lost One", the mid-tempo grunge of "Sewn Shut", and the title track. The closing acoustic ballad "Paper Heart Rose" is also very good and they should continue to write more songs like this. The rest of the tracks are well played and have their moments but outside of "Self Medicated Man" and "The Ode", don't really grab you and the latter song's riff is very similar to Black Sabbath's "Under the Sun". Even the beginning of "In the Island of Pigs" starts out like "Children of the Grave", another Sabbath classic. At its best, Burn the Serum is very good but a lot of the tracks on the second half don't catch fire despite their riveting performances.

Cool guitar riffs and audible singing with melody and discernable lyrics almost seems out of place in today’s Metal market. The songs are Heavy Metal but without blast beats and without scream-o vocals. I keep hearing a lot of comparisons to Soundgarden and Black Sabbath but my first thought was that there guys were the next step up from a band like Dead Soul Tribe.

I can agree that guitarist/vocalist Eddie Veliz sounds similar to Chris Cornell when Cornell is hitting those really high, highs; but the comparison stops there. I personally find whenever the music isn’t moving at a Thrash pace it tends to get labeled Stoner Rock and the gets compared to Sabbath and I just don’t hear that here. I think Kyng are a solid Metal band with some deep Metal roots and yes you can hear those bands that came before them; but good song writing and quality playing makes for a good listen regardless.

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.
