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

Product Description

2008 release from this outfit boasting a line up that includes members of such infamous Metal bands as Hatebreed, Down, Crowbar and others. The brainchild of Jamey Jasta and riff-master Kirk Windstein, Kingdom Of Sorrow tears through an 11 track barrage of some of the most punishing, straight-up Metal in years. Tracks such as 'Lead Into Demise', 'Demon Eyes (Demonized)' and 'Lead The Ghosts Astray' are as memorable as they are heavy, while the haunting 'Screaming At The Sky' shows a new side to these often copied, yet never duplicated Metal luminaries. Kingdom Of Sorrow is the incredible next step in the illustrious careers of two of metals most celebrated heavyweights. Relapse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comparable to Down and Crowbar, but unique in brutality February 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD
What do you get when five metal heads get together to form to form Kingdom of Sorrow? More metal, but with a flavor from their respective origins. Their self-titled debut almost sounds like it could've come out of the catalogue of any one of the members' original bands, but there are subjective differences. Their influences include the likes of Black Sabbath, Pantera, Coors Light, and claim they sound like "an airplane filled with lead crashing into a barge filled with tar."

The band consists of Kirk Windstein of Down/Crowbar (vocals and guitar), Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed (vocals), Steve Gibb of ex-Black Label Society (guitar), Matthew Brunson (bass), and Derek Kerswill of Seemless/Unearth (drums). All origins are of the metal genre, and Kingdom of Sorrow is more of the same but with further intensity. Windstein and Jasta share vocal duties and aren't bad as a pair, where Jasta's vocals are savage and vigorous and Windstein's are deep and sludge-like. Being that Windstein probably laid down most of the guitar duties for this album, it's no surprise the riffs are very similar to those of both Down and Crowbar. The first track, "Hear This Prayer For Her," could have come directly off one of Down's albums - their latest, Down - Over The Under, is most comparable. Other songs such as "Led Into Demise" and "Lead The Ghosts Astray" are fairly unique in brutality. Fans of the members' respective origins: definitely look to get your hands on Kingdom of Sorrow. Everyone else: prepare to become a fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nearly perfect metal album well worth the wait. February 19, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
All fans of Jamey Jasta and Kirk Windstein have been patiently waiting for this album and they won't be disappointed. The mixing of the vocals is perfect and it is matched with excellent production quality...especially the mixing. Jasta's vocals are as pissed off as we've come to expect and Kirk adds just the right amount of variation to the songs. Great drumming, great lyrics, great album. I've been listening to heavy metal since 1983, and this album is the bomb. The breakdown at the end of Hear This Prayer For Her is ridiculous. There is no way to turn it up loud enough. Jasta's grunts are perfectly placed and make a great song perfect. The only thing keeping this album from being perfect is one slow song too many. No complaints, though....this is a fantastic album and you will love it. If you're in to this, buy Icepick and Down....two other side projects that absolutely rule.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better releases of 2008 August 15, 2008
By Spaztic
Format:Audio CD
I have never been into Hatebreed much. In fact I didn't even know the lead singer of Kingdom of Sorrow was from Hatebreed, so I didn't have any expectations. I might be criticized for saying this but Kingdom of Sorrow has a few elements that slightly remind me of Pantera...

Overall, a fantastic metal album that is in moderate rotation on my mp3 player. I would definitely recommend to others. A masterpiece it is not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer riffs = fun record!!!! March 29, 2008
By CRH
Format:Audio CD
What you have here are some killer riffs and that's the bottom line. The vocals are OK and the lyrics are very well done. But buy this record for the riffs and you'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars thunder August 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
sounds like hatebreed vocals with crowbar music with a heavier twist.
"Buried in Black" and "Led Into Demise" are my faves. KoS has a thunderous sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars good for what it is--straight up metal February 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
i think that a bunch of people thought that this collab would be more than it was meant to be.it doesn't suck by any streach,but i think that kirk and jasta weren't attempting to make any big waves with this.they stated on their myspace that it began as them basically getting sloshed and coming up with good metal riffs;it wasn't ever meant to be more than a solid metal record from a love of metal.i admit that i won't have it on constant rotation like the new down album,but you've gotta put this album into perspective.it's a good metal album that you can get down to,not an attempt at technical/lyrical greatness:it's a product made from a genuine love of metal.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's only ok
This album is only ok. I don't like the 'melodic' aspect that they are trying to create. The musicianship is only fair and is pretty predictable. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Cool Riffs....but I should have waited for the live Skinlab CD
So it isn't Hatebreed, but it's still the familiar voice. The riffs are strong, and as always the vocals are excellent. My problem is nothing really stands out.... Read more

I waited quite a while for this album to finally hit based off Buried in Black. I must say I'm disappointed by the final product. Read more
