Fit For A King is a metalcore band from Texas that formed in 2007. They have followed the usual route of releasing a couple of EP's and the independent album `Descendants' (2011), along with building a loyal fan base, but were holding out for a specific label to sign them.

"Words cannot even express how excited we are to join the Solid State family," vocalist Ryan Kirby says. "We grew up listening to Solid State bands and for us to actually be on this label is the best feeling we've had as a band. We'd been waiting and holding off on labels for so long until we felt we had the right one, and we absolutely do. Long-time fans can expect a more energetic, hard hitting album with the same passionate lyrics that we like to bring to the table. And what some fans may not expect is just how heavy and dark this album gets lyrically and musically." It was recorded with Andreas Magnusson (Oh, Sleeper, Haste The Day, Black Dahlia Murder).

After the intro, `Warpath' has harsh growls and crushing riffs, followed by clean-sung choruses. "They say their words / But nothing breaks the surface / (Yet you say you believe) / We lay our heads down / For something empty / (We must be the enemy)". They follow on in a similar vein for `Hollow King' which contains flashes of technical riffing. Whilst `Broken Frame' is about the fickle and elusive nature of fame. The more you pursue it, the more it engulfs your whole life, and then suddenly it is gone.

There is a clean, haunting track in the contemplative `Skin & Bones'. The lyrical content will stay with you long after the song has ended. "I know that one of these days / I'll finally see you face to face at the golden gates / Will you take me or will I fade into the grave?

The name of this album is perfect. If you heard the old Fit For A King you'd know that they were kind of vanilla metalcore. Nothing really special. But now they are. They are more deathmetal now than Metalcore. There are still plenty of clean vox, but overall it is just heavy. Half of the songs are like just massive breakdowns combined with crazy good growled vocals. Its really good. I mean, the whole album is like taking a brick to the face heavy. Its crazy, and a good thing to see from Solidstate. They have mostly metalcore bands, but Fit For a King brings something new to the mix. Great album. Good buy. Only complaint would be that all of the songs sound really similar. But thats not a completely bad thing. Every one of them is good.

First time I heard Fit for a King was when Effect Radio played "Skin & Bones".

I bought the CD and was surprised at the crushing sound that reminded me of Killswitch Engage almost instantly.

I honestly don't know the band members names, but this is a well-oiled machine of artists who assault your senses and thoughts with their sound and lyrics. The combo of the lead singer's growl and the clean background vocals makes for Jekyll & Hyde approach.

The CD starts with a melodic Creation and goes right into the blitzkrieg sounds of "War Path" and "Hollow King". It appears that things will lighten up with the start of "Broken Fame", but that's shortlived with the roaring plea of "it's never enough it seems".

The listener gets a break with the melodic "Skin & Bones", but that's all for the "easy listening". The final half of the CD is one smashing sonic boom after another, ending with "Destruction" and "You don't speak peace You just salt the wound" lyric that is a searing attack on the judging of others.

For those who like Killswitch Engage, Times of Grace and others in the genre will instantly find a new favorite in Fit for a King. It's not for everyone, but one can't argue to passion & lyrical thoughts.

I had heard a single from their previous release and it was very stereotypical and had nothing special to it, just an ordinary metalcore song. I was hesitant for a long time to purchase this album, but when a good deal came along I caved and bought it for some new music to listen to. I put the CD in and when I was finished I kept wondering why I hadn't bought it earlier! It was fantastic! It's a really heavy album without the stereotypes that had made them "just another metalcore band." They've evolved a lot and have created a sound that is grueling and yet calmed by clean vocals. If you'd been debating about buying this, or if you like heavy music and metalcore, don't wait any longer, go buy it and start headbanging!

Fit For A King's Solid State debut definitely retains the metalcore sound the label is well-regarded for, but they spice it up a bit, delivering a project that has hints of a harsher sound, almost a little bit thrash. The heavier sound is complemented by some really outstanding clean vocals, including a clean-only ballad, the excellent Skin & Bones, sung with a sweetness tat Ryan Clark or Bjorn Strid can appreciate. Along with the satisfactory levels of aggression, energy, and clean vocals, the album has plenty of melodic aspects to it, making it a much more versatile release than your average metalcore CD. Transitions are well done too, so the overall record never feels tired from throwing one aspect in your face repeatedly.

My favorite songs include the aforementioned Skin & Bones, Warpath, The Resistance, and Destruction, a nasty heavy track that closes the album out in satisfactory fashion.

Creation/Destruction is a great metal album, and the band from Texas is a very promising one. This album deserves a 4.5, and your undivided attention.
