Earlier this month we investigated the “classic-rock architraves and the thick rubbery-bass columns of power” that constituted “Bury The Witness” taken from the KINGBREAKER album “To the Fire” that’s available digitally from https://kingbreaker.bandcamp.com/
And for those of you who don’t know, we are rather keen on KINGBREAKER.
The band is centred around the spectral lines of the velvet clad, magnetite-iron vocals of Hertfordshires Spinky, with Portuguese guitarist Gabriel’s exothermic guitar bloomery, thumping dark sandwiches of bass from Australian Tom and triple-point diamond anvil beats from Mikko on drums.
Their sound is riff-packed glory — organometallic jams filled with aware and fascinating lyrics and strong melodic structures.
Now STRAITJACKET flames into view. Shared here for the first time…
A growling ever-heaving predatory beat is established by stalking bass and gargling guitar.
Thrust into these mixtures … yet skating across the surface tension … is Spinky — whose copper/silver vocals are as dark as black-sand and yet as hot as magma.
