𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Deploying slow-heavy doom driven riffs & jams, that are sharp, thick, lo-fi, denes & distorted, with some, wried harmonise and neat grooves within guitar work

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Multifaceted styles of ranges & tones

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Slow, heavy bone-crushing drum-patterns

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Hailing from the black country of England, they are some new, strange music, involving from the heart of the midlands, if you love the band 'Eyes of the Raven' also form the midlands, others like in the FFO list, you will love 'King Corpse.' This band captures the spirit of those bands and many others.


When hearing the first track, I was thinking, this is just a standard and typical sludge metal, mixing heavy-doom metal within the framework, after reaching the second track, I was unexpected & shocked how 'King Corpse' was able to (not just) combing sludge metal with doom, heavy metal & stoner (a tint of blues, other elements), but experimented with it, making it into a magical roundabout acid trip.

More you go around, carry on listening to the whole EP, the weirder & exciting the music gets. One thing for sure this band, music will keep your ears entertain and fizzle your brain-cells, like me, you be staying to yourself, what on earth is going on within the music and the mind of each band members?.


Take a listen, don't miss out or skip any tracks, this is for fans, you love a good acid trip music, not shy experimenting with their music, while keeping it wired, sludge metal that is dirty, dense & bone-crushing heavy & doomy, with a hint of stoner & other elements, showcasing the quality of remarkable musicianship and craftsmanship, and one excellent music


*full of energy* *thoroughly enjoyable*

*entertaining* *massive & powerful* *packs a punch*
