King/Forged By Satan's Doctrine/Deathgasm Records/2012 CD Review

King are a band from Columbia that plays a very brutal form of Satanic Blackened Death Metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Forged By Satan's Doctrine" which was released by Deathgasm Records.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown in at times, while the bass playing has a very strong, powerful and heavy tone with brutal death metal riffing that dominates throughout the recording.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast brutal death metal riffs that add in a good amount of black metal influences while the lead guitars are very chaotic and distorted sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.

Vocals are a mixture of deep death metal growls and high pitched blackened death metal screams with a brief spoken word ritual passage being used on a couple of songs as well as some samples, while the lyrics cover Lovecraft, Satanism, Occultism and Anti Christian themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.

In my opinion King are a very great and brutal sounding Satanic blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kill The Posers Like Fucking Christians" "Evil Evangelization" "The Ruthless Attitude Of Evil Sobervia" and "Macabre Satanas". RECOMMENDED BUY.
