KYNG - BURN THE SERUM

RAZOR AND TIE

APRIL 15 2014

 

 

After three long years of touring to support their first release ‘Trampled Sun’ Kyng returns with what is almost certainly their best work to date. Title track ‘Burn the Serum’ which opens proceedings has a hefty dose of sixties psychedelia grated to 90’s alt-rock stock with a mighty groove. It’s a song that manages to capture your attention and run away with it.

 

Kyng is the sort of trio that produces a mighty fine noise, plenty of heaviness and reminiscent both old the old masters like Zep and Sabbath, but also with nods to newer luminaries such as QOTSA and Soundgarden. It’s the sort of album that yet again proves there is so much power in a trio and that base sound of guitar drums and bass that is still so utterly absorbing.

 

The first single ‘Electric Halo’ should be all the proof you need that these guys from Cali have it in spades: it’s a song where vocals, guitar and drums all shine and our pick of the album.  Like we said it’s a huge song and as Veliz relates: "When we were writing it, we asked, 'What would Tony Iommi do?'" Simple as that!

 

On an album like this its almost impossible to single out favourites, just sit back and enjoy.
