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.

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.

This is great! I am into heavy metal, but you don't have to like just that to enjoy this album. They deliver a little of everything from Metal and rock, to light jazzy type beats. The vocalists do some great harmonizing.

Kyng rocks. I first read the name while looking at The Sword's tour page. I trust The Sword to take outfits of similar quality and style with them on tour, so I gave Kyng a chance. JACKPOT! Get the record.

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!
