Editorial Reviews

Kyng, the southern California hard rock trio, originated in January of 2008 in Los Angeles. Their sound is a unique and universally appealing combination of heavy and captivating concepts, channeling influences from Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin to the Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age. Kyng's versatile approach of a sweet devastation bleeds from an artistic drive toward a momentum described as "California Heavy. Their evolution will undoubtedly blaze a trail that redefines what is expected and defines the giants they will become.

I can't wait lies in store from them.
DAVID M. Guissarri
They somehow seem to borrow stylistically from some great bands and still sound new and fresh.
Amazon Customer
The vocalists do some great harmonizing.

After listening to a few new releases in hard rock/mainstream metal recently, I am very optimistic for the future of the genre in the 2010's. I saw Kyng when they opened for Drowning Pool in Ohio, and I was immediately interested in picking up their CD. I was not disappointed. The singer/guitarist sounds a lot like Chris Cornell, and he can play the guitar well enough to sneak in a few cool solos here and there. The drumming immediately stands out as well, as it is hard and relentless. The bass is pretty good too but I'm not a big bass guy so someone else can comment on that.

Overall I think this is a great album. The mix doesn't sound as full as Staind's new record, but that's to be expected since Staind has been around for 20 years. For a debut record I think it's miles above most debut records. 5 stars.

Kyng's throwback, hard-rock power-trio format, with good riffs, and expressive, harmonized vocals (handled by guitarist/Chris Cornell doppelganger Eddie Veliz and bassist Tony Fernandez) appeals to me, a guy who grew up loving King's X and Soundgarden. Their songwriting is also surprisingly accomplished, and as a few other reviewers have touched upon, Kyng is rootsy, organic and natural - their debut is honest, raw-sounding and distinctive. For all the dazzling technicality on this album, the best thing about Kyng is that they are actually executing non-pitch corrected vocal harmonies, not screaming or growling with alternating sensitive-boy emo choruses, or handing their music to have the life super-compressed and sucked out of it by some Andy Sneap soundalike producer. These are problems that are plaguing a lot of modern metal and hard rock, making it faceless. Bands like Kyng (and Baroness, and Mastodon, maybe to a lesser extent bands like Volbeat or Diablo Swing Orchestra) are leading the charge to do something different, and as an old-school metalhead I appreciate that more than anything.

_Trampled Sun_ is first and foremost a bunch of strong songs by strong musicians (especially drummer Pepe Clarke - who is a VERY busy man most tracks), starting right out of the gate with anthemic first single "Falling Down" and the relentless uptempo riffing of "Pushing and Pulling." The band tries a bunch of different stops, too, such as the doomy "Trampled Sun," or the pop overtones in "Takes its Toll" or "Roses," and the outright headbang in "Trails of Tears." Even better is when the band really experiments with compositional variation, like the dreamy "Porcelain" ends with a nasty tumbling funk groove that fades into pure bass line (not a first album trick, by a long-shot!

As a Metal Fan I tend to hate anything in the "Hard Rock" category, as it usually sounds like every other Hard Rock album in the past 10 years; but these guys have a great sound, and you can tell they are playing and writing for the love of it.

Heard Kyngs "Falling Down" a few times on Liquid Metal. Made a mental note. FYI the bad review on this site is B.S.

Here's the truth -

They recently opened for Sevendust on their current tour and COMPLETELY destroyed the place. You want epic musicianship - CHECK, Creative song structures - CHECK, Killer solos - CHECK, Soulful vocals and lyrics - CHECK.

Bottom line....Kyng is the complete package. A power trio that is brutal, grooves and is soulful...sometimes all at once.

If you like Mastodon, Kill Devil Hill, Down, Soundgarden, Clutch or the Black Keys you should check them out.

5 STAR Album. Can't wait for the next one.

The largest letters cannot describe the biggest sound. KYNG is beyond power, it is an experience. If you like bands with the full package, then this is the one to check out. Tap into the groove, run with the devil, turn on to the KYNG experience.

kyng should definitely be able to win some acclaim if they keep putting out material like this. it has some good loud thrashers, some smooth, flowing soul, and an honesty and straightforwardness lacking in much of today's music. definitely worth the price!

First of all I would like to thank Jose Mangin at Sirius/Xm Liquid Metal for pushing these guys and introducing them to us...the metal loving public. The band plays a style of hard rock / metal that is unlike ninety-five percent of what you hear out there. The musicianship is top notch and the singer's vocals at times will bring to mind Chris Cornell. This is an excellent band, check it out and you'll be thanking him as well.

I can still remember when my best friend and I went to see In Flames live, and this band just so happened to be the first out of three opening acts. We knew nothing of them before going to the show, so we had no way of knowing what we were about to experience. All I can think of when I reflect back upon this letdown of an experience is how bad I felt for In Flames, and the 30 or so minutes of my life I will never get back.

This lamer-than-lame excuse of a rock band known as Kyng is just awful. The drummer is okay, but let's talk about the singer/guitarist. He is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the weakest excuses of a rock frontman I've ever seen in my life. Not only is he a horrible singer, but all he did with his guitar was just a few simple chords, and he barely even touched upon ANYTHING even passable as a solo. To top it off, these guys were on for barely half an hour, and after they finished their last song, the singer/guitarist exclaimed, "My fingers are hurting me!" Geez buddy, you barely even played that guitar at all! Seriously, how pathetic can you be?

Honestly, these guys have no business calling themselves a rock band. Nothing on this album comes anywhere even close to being worthy of the praise that they seem to be gaining. When I heard they were on the bill to open up for Megadeth (at the same venue I saw them open up for In Flames, no less), I wanted to scream. Kyng are simply a terrible band who are a disgrace to rock music, and their musicianship is barely any better than that of Nickelback or Fall Out Boy.

Also, to all of you Kyng fans out there who may be reading this:

I have a right to criticize this band. I have a right to criticize them, just like I can criticize any other band/artist out there.
