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.

To my ears Kyng are one of the few modern bands pushing hard rock back on the right track. They have a complexity to their sound beneath the surface such as interesting time changes, instrumental passages and dynamics. What impresses me is that the band sound like they have carefully studied the masters in this area of rock such as Captain Beyond, Truth and Janey, Armageddon, Granicus, Deep Purple and Soundgarden. If you like this, I would highly recommend that you listen to Captain Beyond's incredible first album.

I only wonder if the current market is primed for Kyng's music and if the band can continue to advance its sound on future albums. They strike me as a great band that will get lost in the shuffle only to be discovered years later. I can see this album being considered a lost classic of the 2010's rock scene a couple of decades from now.

I gave this album 4 stars out of 5 for my review as I benchmark against historical releases. Let me be clear that this is easily a 5 star effort if viewed in comparison to the albums released by the current crop of rocks bands.

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.

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.

When I first heard Kyng, I would have never known they were a 3-piece from L.A. The sound is heavy and gritty, and the songwriting is top-notch for a band on its first album. Bands like Kyng keep hope alive for modern metal--I highly recommend metalheads check them out.

Just an amazing band. If you started with Burn the Serum and liked it, you've gotta get this one too!!!

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.

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.
