King of a Dead World contains eight heavy as fuck unrelenting tunes. The album is a glorious blend of hardcore with varying elements of stoner rock and a bit of sludge.
Stoner infused hardcore with elements of sludge dominate this album. The rhythms consistently change course, leaving the listener with a satisfying dose of pure innovative heaviness.
The vocal prowess of Phil Wilkinson is abrasive, yet infectious.
Bones to Dust and No Safe Place
These two tracks back-to-back are phenomenal and really showcase their craftsmanship. Their blending of metal styles is highly impressive. We'll give a shout out to the track "Parasite" as it has this Acid Bath feel.

Blue Train IPA by Blue Earl Brewing in Delaware. This 8.1% IPA has a dark red look with flavors of well balanced citrus and pine. A great pairing with King of a Dead World.
