I received a textual content from Sullivan King two days in the past, “YOOOO you hitting that A7X discussion board present or what?” After all, I’d already purchased my tickets and responded with a screenshot of my seats and, “You fuckin understand it.” On a private stage, I’ve identified and have been protecting Sullivan King since 2014 — I bear in mind strolling into Icon Collective, from which he’d simply graduated, in 2015, for our first sit-down interview. We bonded over our appreciation of steel, particularly Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu. I virtually received my first tattoo of his signature on my chest (after he’d truly ripped my shirt open) after his present on the Belasco in Los Angeles in 2017, supporting Black Tiger Intercourse Machine.
We’ve been by means of quite a bit and walked the identical path in these previous 9 years. By two different studio albums, his first mainstage play at Misplaced Lands, headline units in Los Angeles, he has regularly honed his craft resulting in immediately, the discharge of his latest and most bold and rock-influenced album, Thrones of Blood.
The album’s collaborations span between Taylor Barber of Left To Endure, to SVDDEN DEATH, Excision and extra, and boasts beforehand launched singles together with the large “The Useless March” with Ray Volpe, the speaker-shattering collaboration with Excision, “Fall Aside,” and the extremely anticipated assaulting SVDDEN DEATH collaboration “Pursuit of Violence.” These are accompanied by new tracks like “Die By My Hand” with Vastive feat. Taylor Barber of Left To Endure, “Riot” with Kai Wachi and extra.
There’s even a stunning pattern of The Rock’s well-known “Shut up, bitch!” towards the tip of “Finish of Us.”
Listening by means of the album, you’re sure to discover a bunch of delicate (or not so delicate) nods to the previous of steel and rock in addition to loads of influences from his contemporaries even outdoors of the express collaborations.
Test it out beneath!
